What can you do in 20 minutes these days? Apart from getting ready to go to work (minus the make-up time for women) and cooking a decent dinner on a weekday there’s actually not much.

And we can bet this workout regimen will burn your calories like crazy, tone your body and get you in shape at the earliest. For a detailed plan see the chart below:

20 minutes and the perfect body is just a few weeks ahead. Once you are done relax and don’t forget to flex your muscles. You’re most probably going to start feeling the pain in the 1st day itself. But keep reminding yourself that, everything worth cherishing for don’t happen without pain!

 

Note: If 4 sets are a little too much for you then begin with 2 and gradually take it up. Feel free to rest if you feel out of breath . Jazz it up  by playing some super awesome tracks on loud, because you’re going to need the energy to pump up.
