Feeling tired come lunch time? This workout by certified trainer Rob Sulaver is perfect for when you're feeling sluggish during the day. Perform these three exercises for a minute each to get your blood pumping and boost your energy to get you through the rest of the day. It will improve your focus, lower stress, and fit perfectly into your work routine!

Exercise one is under-and-over-the-hurdle. With a wide stance, squat low and duck your body sideways. Next, take one leg and swing it up and over as if over a barrel, and follow with the other leg. Repeat this under-over combo for one minute. This will work your lower body: glutes, hamstrings, quads, and the entire hip complex.

Exercise two is bent over T's. Place your feet shoulder width apart and bend your knees so you are slightly squatted. With your thumbs facing up and arms straight, raise your arms so they are in a T position. At the top of the T, make sure you squeeze your shoulder blades together. 

The final exercise is crab toe touches. Remember crab walks from elementary school gym? We're bringing them back. Once you're in the crab position, raise one arm and tap the opposite toes. Alternate between sides, keeping your butt raised and allowing your shoulders and chest to open up.

Three exercises, three minutes each, three rounds total. Just nine minutes out of your day will help you feel rejuvenated and revitalized!
