Five 5-Minute Workout Routines to Try

We’re celebrating our 5th birthday this week, so of course, we had to get fully on board with the five theme, which meant 5-minute workout ideas. Five minutes may not seem like a lot, but you’d be surprised at how much you can get done in five minutes. Besides, sometimes a 5-minute workout is all a mom has before she’s interrupted by a waking baby or someone demanding lunch. Here are five 5-minute workouts we guarantee will get your muscles burning and your heart pumping!
