Even if you don’t have time to shower after a workout doesn’t mean you should forgo daily exercise. While sweating is a sign your body temperature is rising, sweat isn’t always necessary for an amazing workout. You can boost your energy and tone your muscles without even moving though isometric exercises — they contract your muscles while you stay in one stead position. The longer you hold each position, the more muscle fibers you recruit, thereby intensifying your workout while still leaving you sweat-free.

So the next time you’re in a rush (and without access to a shower and clean change of clothes!), try these moves:

1. Wall Sit

While wall sit works all of your leg muscles, special emphasis is placed yourinner thighs. Consciously focus on pushing your knees outward and notice how your inner thighs begin to contract.

Place your back against a wall, feet shoulder width apart in front of you. Slide your torso down the wall until your legs create a 90-degree angle, thighs parallel to the floor, knees tracking over ankles. Either hold your arms out in front of you or down at your sides. Your shoulders remain in contact with the wall. Hold for one minute.
