"Short Cuts," the 1993 movie with Jack Lemmon, Tom Waits, Lily Tomlin and Jennifer Jason Leigh, was about the intersecting lives of 22 Los Angelenos. It squeezed in enough plotlines to make your hectic day look like a day at the beach.

If your getting caught up in life's hectic pace, you may be having trouble fitting regular exercise into your weekly routine.

Luckily, we have a shortcut solution: a super-compressed, four-step exercise plan that will help you avoid weight gain, make your brain younger and stronger, and perk up your sex life, while dialing down your blood pressure, bad LDL cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. So here it is!

1. Make sure you get in 10,000 steps every day. Keep track with a pedometer or a smartphone app! Remember: One minute of aerobic exercise (like swimming) equals 100 steps.

2. Tone muscles with 30 minutes of resistance exercises a week using stretch bands, hand weights, or your own body weight!

3. Go for 20 jumps a day. You read right: jumps. You can try jumping in place, jumping up and down off a step platform, jumping from one leg to the other, or jumping rope. This exercise builds bone.

4. Get 20 minutes of cardiovascular exercise three times a week. Cardio should be done at 80 percent or more of your age-adjusted heart rate. You can calculate your AAHR by subtracting your calendar age from 220.
