Work IT Wednesday: Ab and Cardio HIIT

We are ALL short on time right?

You can still get a great workout using a properly designed HIIT sequence.

I am in a constant battle with my abs, so I designed this sequence to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

It’s easier if you have my FAVORITE APP, Tababta Pro. If you aren’t into apps, make sure you have a stop watch or a watch that you can see the seconds tick off :)

What you will need:

  1. A jump rope (real or imaginary)
  2. A workout mat
  3. A bar/captains chair for leg raises (alternate will be given)

Set your timer for 40 seconds of WORK and 10 seconds of REST. If you need a break between rounds you can set PREPARE to 30 seconds.

10 moves, 4 times through and you are DONE!

The Workout:

  1. Jump Rope
  2. Forearm Plank
  3. Jump Rope
  4. Hanging Leg Raise (if none available, do leg drops on back)
  5. Jump Rope
  6. Bicycle Crunch
  7. Mountain Climbers
  8. Dead Bug
  9. Burpee
  10. Full Sit up with Twist

It’s super simple and ab focused with a cardio component. This way, you get more done in less time. Genius right?

Give it a try and let us know how you do in the comments BELOW!

Have a healthy day,

Michelle
