Here's some fitness advice you'll like: The smartest way to sculpt your body also happens to save you a lot of time.
To get the most out of your next workout, ditch the typical structure of cardio followed by strength training; instead, try moves that combine the two. You could integrate total-body plyometric exercises such as the burpee, or keep your heart rate up by resting less when doing moves like squats. Or, fitness expert Jen Sinkler says, cardio could simply be a matter of “lifting weights faster.”
If you break free of the standard treadmill-then-weight-room routine, you'll see the payoff in your schedule and your body. You rebel, you.
