Drop sets are one of the most effective ways to feel the burn deep into your muscles and and bring them to exhaustion. It’s also an great way to increase the intensity of your workout, get more work done in less time, resulting in reducing the amount of time that you spend in the gym. After all the #1 excuse for not working out is lack of time. Well what if I told you that you could get an intense workout in just 10 minutes 4 times each week? Would you still use the lack of time excuse?
Intense And Effective 10 Minute Workouts
I’ve been putting my wife Angie through intense and highly effective 10 minute workouts for over a year now and she’s achieved incredible results. The most time that any single workout would take her is 20 minutes. She’s a busy mom constantly on the go. She doesn’t have time to spend hours in the gym. But she wants great results.
Well there’s great news. You don’t need to spend hours in the gym to get great results. Just check out this 10 minute leg workout that Angie did today. She even did it with the kids running around her. Nothing will get in the way of her and her dream body!

In addition to her four 10 minute intense weight training sessions each week, Angie also includes a few high intensity interval training sessions for cardio. She does this for 15 minutes on the stationary bike. That includes a 3 minute warm up and 2 minute cool down.
And because we love our brisk walks, bike rides, and hiking, it’s always incorporated into the program. Angie just went for a brisk walk an hour ago. We do what we love and enjoy. And we must admit, getting in a 10 minute workout is enjoyable because we’re aren’t stressing about the lack of time that we have to get everything else done.
It’s All About Intensity
You know… what most people are lacking in the gym. Too many people are just going through the motions. To many people are not getting results. If you’ve been doing 30 to 60 minutes of cardio for months and months or even years and not experiencing great results, it’s time to mix things up.
I’m all for incorporating the long duration work into your program, but even then you have to pick up the intensity. You will get what you put into it. Just because you put 60 minutes of time in does not mean that you put in what is required for fat loss success. What’s required is effort, not time.
I hope that you enjoy the workout. It will leave your thighs screaming.
Have a totally awesome day!
