Well, luckily, there are exercises that would not take one that much time. In fact, one can spend 10 minutes a day doing exercises and still keep fit and be toned. To show you that this is possible, we have prepared for you a list of exercises to do daily. And as you know, they will take you only 10 minutes a day. So, check them out and if possible, try it out as well.

#1 Jumping Jacks

The first of the exercises is a bit of a warm-up and it will prepare you for the rest. You need to do 10 jumping jacks. Stand up straight and with your arms pressed to your body and your legs pressed against one another. Then do a jumping with your legs opened to the sides and your arms raised in the air above your head.

Make sure you open your legs as much as possible and touch the fingers of your arms as well when you raise them above your head. You need to do 3 sets of 10 jumping jacks and after that have half a minute break before you move on to the next exercises. It will take you about 3 minutes to do it.

#2 Squats

The next exercise is one of the most necessary ones for legs and it is squats. The greatest thing about leg exercises is that they burn more fat and calories compared to abdominal ones. And this means that if you want to burn more fats and calories, then you definitely need to include squats in your exercise list. What you need to do is to stand up straight with your hands pressed to your body.

This time, however, your legs need to be slightly open so your feet are on the level of your shoulders. Then do the first squat and while you are doing it raise your arms in a horizontal position. You can touch your hands if you want, or not, this depends on you. And when you raise from the squat put your arms back down, pressed to your body.

You need to do 3 sets of 5 squats with a couple of seconds rest between the squats. The whole exercise will take you a minute or so to complete it. Then you need to have a half minute rest once again before you move on to the next exercise.

#3 Roll ups

The third of the exercises in the list is roll ups. This exercise will help you burn belly fat. What you need to do is to lie down on the floor with your arms on the floor as well but stretch them so that all of your body is in a straight line, in a horizontal position. Then raise your upper body off the floor as if doing crunches.

Keep your arms in the same stretched position while doing this. When you sit on the floor extend your arms ahead and touch the tips of your toes with your fingers. And finally, exhale. Then lie back down and repeat the exercise 10 times. It will take you about half a minute or so.

#4 Leg drop

The next exercise is again for your belly but this time for your legs as well. What you need to do is to lie down on the floor in the same straight position but this time with your arms pressed to your body. Keep the upper half of your body in this position and raise your legs in the air. Make sure they are pressed one against the other.

Keep your legs straight and raise them as much as possible so that your upper and lower halves of the body create a 90-degree angle. Then slowly put your legs down and repeat the exercise. Do 10 reps. This time it may take you about a minute to do it especially if you are not in a hurry, which, of course, is better.

And these are the exercises. They will not take you more than 10 minutes to complete them which means that you may add some planks or push-ups to the list as well, if you like, for a better result.
