A 20-Minute Treadmill Workout Kate Hudson Would Approve Of

In light of Kate Hudson's recent story with Sunday Times UK, Style Magazine, where The Academy Award-nominated actress and mother of two proclaimed it takes but 20 minutes a day to sculpt her gorgeous body, below is my go to 20-minute treadmill workout.

"I'm a big believer in doing 20 minutes of exercise a day," she told Sunday Times, Style. "I wouldn't say [I work out] a lot, just consistently. People think for some reason you have to work out for two and a half hours... but, it can be little. It can be 20 minutes.."

City Lately Advice: My Four Times a Week Rule

To stay fit, I do not work out every single day. I have long practiced the art of working out at least four times a week. It is nice to have the flexibility to negotiate and spread workout days according to my busy, unpredictable schedule.

But I'll be frank, the major reason I like the work out at least four times a week rule is because it gives me the freedom to push a workout day to later in the week if I decide to indulge in a Netflix documentary binge after work one evening.
