HIIT Cardio and Abs Workout

This is a difficult workout to do, but it’s definitely doable if you can keep pushing yourself. There are no breaks in between each exercise, but instead you will be doing 30 seconds of high knee skipping after each one.

HIIT Cardio and Abs Workout

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds on, with zero rest in between exercises. 2-3 minute rest in between sets. Repeat for 3-4 rounds total

  1. Ab Shimmies: lie flat on the floor with your knees bent. Pull your upper body to the right but keep your back straight. Touch your right hand to your right foot. Pull your body back to the neutral position and repeat this exercise on the left side.
  2. High Knees
  3. Left Plank Hip Drops: Keep your body in a straight line with your weight on your left forearm. Drop your hip slowly and bring it back up. Do this as many times as you can through out the 30 seconds.
  4. High Knees
  5. Right Plank Hip Drops: Repeat number 3, except on your right forearm
  6. High Knees
  7. Scissor Kicks: Keep your back flat to the ground, and lift your legs slightly above the ground. Don’t let your feet drop. Criss cross your legs over one another alternating which right foot over left, and left over right.
  8. High Knees
  9. Medicine Ball Twists: Sit on your bum with your torso straight and your legs pointed out in front of you. Contract your abs and twist your torso so that the medicine ball is on the right side of your hip. Contract your abs again and turn your torso the other way so that the medicine ball is on the left side.
  10. High Knees

    I did this workout this morning because I didn’t have time to go to the gym and get some cardio in before work, and this was a great, challenging workout! I usually strength train at the gym 2-3 times a week, but will definitely add HIIT workouts to my training. Do your e-books have workouts similar to this or a mix of this and strength training (bodyweight, weights, etc)? Thanks!
