In our busy, jam-packed lives it's often the daily workout that gets pushed to the back of the line. After all, who has time to drive to the gym, work out and get cleaned up all over again? In honor of National Women's Health Week, an observance led by the US Department of Health and Human Services, here are five free no-sweat workouts that fit into your lunch hour.

Synergy 7 System
Performing a series of strength exercises at a quick pace to push your heart into workout mode sounds like a sweat-inducing workout. But the good news with the Synergy 7 System is that you're only doing it for seven minutes, which isn't enough time to get super sweaty. Check it out at shape.com.


Goodbye Stress Calming Stretching Workout
For days when you don't have time for a full workout, why not focus on flexibility? This full body stretch routine from FitnessBlender uses yoga poses like the Downward Dog and Cobra Stretch to get your blood flowing without breaking a sweat. The 13-minute video is available for free on YouTube.


20-Minute Resistance Band Workout Video
Bring the gym to your desk with the help of a resistance band. You can even do the 20-Minute Resistance Band Workout while sitting in your office chair. Print off the full instructions at Sparkpeople.com.


10-Minute Pilates
Tackle your tummy with the help of a 10-minute Pilates session with celeb trainer Juliet Kaska. The free workout is available at fitsugar.com and, added bonus, no equipment is needed.


Walking
Unless it's a humid, 95 degree day you can walk on your lunch break without getting your clothes sweaty. Pull on some tennis shoes and get moving. Chances are you'll feel more energetic and focused to take on the rest of the day.
