5. A trampoline stability workout

It's true that most people don't have a mini-trampoline lying around the house, but if you do, this fun and high-energy sculpting workout from Aronoff should be a go-to when you're low on time. Thankfully, the trampoline aspect is completely optional, so either way, this workout will fire up your muscles and create a challenge in just 10 minutes.
