For some people, workouts are better if they take less time and are more efficient. High intensity interval training (HIIT) and tabata workouts are a few short-duration high intensity workouts that can help you with weight loss and make for an efficient workout routine. HIIT can be usually done between 10 to 15 minutes while one round of a Tabata workout can be done within four minutes. But do you know any workout which can be done in two minutes? Sounds exciting, isn't it?

The exercises can be helpful un preventing long hours of sitting and can help you be physically active throughout the day.
