Sam Wood's 10 minute mood boosting workouts

Only have a short time window but craving the happiness endorphins that exercise brings? Good news! A new study published in the Journal of Happiness found that as little as 10 minutes exercise can lead to increased happiness.

The study  - which took in conclusions from 1142 existing records - also found that even exercising just one day per week is also linked to an overall increase in both health and happiness.

Sam Wood tells that he is unsurprised by the new findings. “My magic number is of course 28, however, I am always saying that something is definitely better than nothing," Sam says.

"People are very pleasantly surprised at the results they can get and most importantly how good they feel, both mentally and physically, even with just 10 minutes a day. So with that in mind, here are two great 10 minute workouts you can incorporate into your daily routine.”

Workout one: Target your legs, arms and glutes with this intense 10-minute circuit for the ultimate full body blitz. Try for 40 seconds on each exercise with a 20-second rest before moving on to the next. Repeat twice.

Workout two: Crush your core and tone your legs with this cardio-based routine. Aim for 40 seconds on each exercise with a 20-second rest before moving on to the next. Repeat twice.
