Instead of ordering Seamless, drinking wine, stalking Instagram and watching stories on SnapChat— here’s an at home work out inspired by SWERVE.  In their class, you not only get a killer cardio workout, but you also strengthen tons of muscles in your legs (glutes, quads, hamstrings) as well as your core and shoulders.

30 seconds each exercise, 3 rounds, 1 min rest in between rounds
