30 min HIIT & Core Workout

Crunched fore time? Need to workout at home? Don’t have much equipment to work with? Don’t know what to do? Don’t make those excuses! Use this quick and effective cardio and core workout- and do it anywhere!

 

The workout includes 2 portions of tabata + core (and a push up finisher!)
For the tabatas:

Each tabata includes 4 exercises to be done in intervals of 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest. If you do tabata right you will NEED those 10 seconds of rest, so workout hard! Each tabata (set of 4 exercises) is to be done 4 times and then take a 90 second rest before beginning your next tabata!

For the core:

Each exercise is to be done twice- just twice!

For the push up finisher:

Choose any form of push up and do reps until failure. But be sure to keep good form! Proper form > extra reps 😉 I challenge you to choose push ups that you haven’t historically been good at- get stronger today!

*note: as with any exercise program, make sure you consult a doctor before beginning. All exercises seen here can be done with modifications- if you need some please ask me! You can find me on instagram at commit_fit_carly and ask away there!

And please for my sanity make sure you know how to keep proper form!
