Hello, summertime! We all love to hit the beach this time of year, so why not HIIT a quick, effective workout while you’re at it?
This routine can travel with you wherever your summer vacation lands. With no equipment and only 15 minutes required, you can give this workout a go on the go.
Here are five exercises to keep your heart rate up and your muscles feeling the burn. Take 45 seconds per exercise with a 15-second rest in between. Go for AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) for 15 minutes. Kick off your shoes, kick off the summer and kick in the fun!
Bend the knees, press the hips back and jump. This will elevate the heart rate and burn the lower body.
Start seated, reach back and return to seated position. Add your arms to keep the heart rate up.
This exercise elevates the heart rate. Substituting step-outs from side to side is an option, too.
PIKE TO PLANK
Start in a plank position and pike the hips up and down. This move is great for the core and upper body.
Start by standing tall, with legs together, and step back, alternating your legs. This move is great for the quads, calves and glutes.
