Contrary to popular belief you do not have to spend hours on the treadmill to get results. In fact, you’re more likely to do more harm than good. If you’re stuck in the office with limited time, space and equipment, try the following circuit on for size.

The great thing about this circuit is that it targets the whole body, and you can make it as hard or as easy as you want – if you’re a beginner, use the rest as actual rest, I recommends 1 minute rest between exercises.

Interval 1: Squats
