20 Minutes to Shred

This quick and effective HIIT circuit can be performed at the gym, outdoors, or at home! In addition to torching calories, HIIT or “high intensity interval training” is a great way to boost your stamina and agility. Go through all four exercises without stopping, then rest for 15-30 seconds, and repeat. Perform 3-4 rounds, depending on your fitness level.

Bicycle Crunches
15 seconds

Lay on your back and bring your knee to meet your opposite elbow. You can perform these slowly or challenge yourself to perform them as fast as you can while keeping control!

Pushups
10 reps

You can perform these as a standard push-up or, if needed, modify them by performing them from your knees. Either way, make sure your core is tight and engaged the entire time!

High Knees
20 seconds

Jog in place, bringing your knees up as high as possible. Go as fast as you can and engage your core to keep it tight!

Burpees
5 reps

I know you love to hate these, but they work! Jump up, drop down into a push-up, jump up, and repeat!

NOTE: Go through all four exercises without stopping, then rest for 15-30 seconds, and repeat. Perform 3-4 rounds.

One thought on “20 Minutes to Shred

  1. This sounds good. I haven’t worked out like this for years.
    I do rounds like this with weights of four to five sets of different exercises two or three times a month.
    I think I will add these in on my non lift days. May have to adjust as I have bad knees.
    Keep the info coming.
    Thanks
