This is where we tell you how groundbreaking this workout is. How it will get you toned in 20 minutes a day, or if you're really time-pressed, as little as 10. (All true, those first and second sentences.) But the motivating bits on helping you find your fire? Squashing self-doubt? We leave that to our trainer, Hannah Eden, a woman who has been to hell and back...and came out this strong. (Read more about Hannah's story here.) This nine-move circuit is just a taste of the workouts you'll find on Hannah's 28-Day Fat Torch DVD. Three times a week, perform each exercise for 45 seconds, completing as many quality reps as possible, then rest for 15 seconds before moving on to the next. After you've finished the entire sequence in order, repeat once more for a 20-minute workout, or up to three more times for a 30- or 40-minute sesh. The 28-Day Fat Torch DVD comes packed with five high-octane routines that range from 20-minute quickies to a 40-minute metabolic charge (and even a 10-minute Lightning Round you can tack on or knock out alone) to match how much time you really have.
