20 Minute HIIT Workout!
"Need a quick and effective workout you can do virtually anywhere? Grab a mat and some water, and set your timer."- Dr. Lauren Serpico
40 seconds on, 20 seconds rest. Repeat 4 times
1 - SHOULDER TAPS
Starting in a high plank, raise one hand at a time and tap the opposite shoulder. Keep your hips square to the ground, avoiding the urge to sway back + forth.
2 - MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS
Stay in that plank position, and alternate bringing your legs to your center. Perform these quick for a cardio blast, or slooooowwww for a more resistance-based movement. Whichever you choose, be mindful of your form! Make sure those shoulders don’t sneak up to your earlobes!
3 - FLUTTER KICKS
Flip onto you back and scissor (or “flutter”) your legs back and forth- keeping them nice and straight, and close to the ground! We are worrrrking those lower abdominals in this one!
4 - JUMP FORWARD, JOG BACK
Stand it up and head to the back of your workout space. Take a big jump forward landing in your squat position- chest lifted, shoulders down, weight back in your heels! Jog it back and repeat! If you have the space — jump twice!
5 - 180 SQUAT JUMPS
Let’s crank up the intensity for this last one! In a standard squat jump, we’re maintaining that proper form of chest lifted, shoulders back, weight in the heels, ensuring our knees don’t come above our toes. Now jump! Landing softly, toe—ball—heel. That’s not all my friends, we’re adding a 180 twist, so as you jump, change your direction! Feeling wild, go for a full 360 jump!
