This 30-Minute Low-Impact Workout Will Toast Your Entire Body, Zero Equipment Needed

Ready to work up a sweat? You don't need equipment or even a whole lot of time to do it - not with this three-circuit 30-minute full-body strength workout at your disposal. "Each circuit incorporates upper and lower extremity work" to work your whole body in a short amount of time, explained Austin Johnson, NCSF, Gold's Gym national personal training manager, who created the workout. And the entire routine is done standing, he said, which promotes more energy use (aka calorie burn) because you're activating your muscles more than you would in a seated position. You'll also notice that the workout is low-impact: you'll always have at least one foot on the ground, Johnson said, so it's a good choice if you're looking for something less jumpy.

Check out the full workout ahead, and keep reading for an explanation and demo of each move (performed by Theresa Swigert, NCSR, Gold's Gym national studio manager).
