Didn’t get a chance to hit the gym today? We have all been there.  Still looking for a way to sneak in a workout and get your heart pumping? Below is a workout that I have sound successful in burning an extra 100 calories on those days when getting to a gym just isn’t possible.  This mini workout requires not equipment and can be done just about anywhere. Please consider that these estimations. As a rule of thumb if you’re heavier 150lbs, you may burn more, and if you’re lighter than 150lbs you may burn less.
