Here we will tell you four simple yet smart exercises that target your entire body in practically no time – all it takes is 15 minutes, 3 days a week. How can it work so fast? It’s simple: Each of these high-intensity moves work multiple muscle groups at a time. That means you burn more calories and fat than if you worked each muscle individually and hone your balance and coordination skills, too. For best results, do two or three sets of each move using 3- to 8- pound dumbbells. If you work out on 3 nonconsecutive days a week, you’ll see results in six weeks.
