Meatless Monday may be the only healthy living goal you've been able to summon the energy for this week, but this 90s party x hip-hop workout we spotted on PopSugar may be worth a try. (Especially if you're serious about finally graduating to that skirtless, two-piece swimsuit this year.)

Crunch trainer Jodi Patterson kicks off what she calls the "2Fly" routine with a shoulder roll we could probably do from our office chair, but works up to some Mary J Blige, Real Love-eque moves that definitely bring on the sweat.

At 10 minutes -- shorter time than you'll spend stalking folks on Instagram today -- what have you got to lose?

HuffPost Healthy Living reported last year that a short blast of intense exercise can boost metabolism for the entire day more effectively than a workout that's slow and steady. In addition, doctors stress that a regular exercise practice, even if it's just 10 minutes, can have a lasting impact on heart health and mental acuity, according to NPR.

Skip that afternoon trip to the vending machine and check out Jodi's 10-minute routine in the video instead.
