    If you like HIIT, and why wouldn't you, then you will love this 37 minute HIIT and Core workout. We have put together a nice combination of exercises that will be sure to leave you sweaty and out of breath.

    We thought we would change the feel up a bit by running straight through each exercise consecutively rather than alternating back and forth between a couple of moves. In this video we have broken down the HIIT section into two groups of 6 exercises and we will be running through them one after the other until we have done each for 20 seconds (with a 10 second rest in between). Once we are done with one set of each we immediately start the list over again with no extra rest. Once two sets of each have been completed, we take a short break to get ready for group two. The second group will be done just like the first, we just have 6 new and more challenging exercises to run through.

    Once done with all the rounds of bodyweight HIIT we will move on to the core workout, where we challenge all of the major muscles that control trunk mobility. Each of the 5 exercises in this group will be done for 45 seconds with a 15 second break to set up for the next exercise. Just like with the HIIT section we will run through the list in succession before starting back through for a second set of each. Though all of these exercises are done with only body weight, feel free to add some weight if you need more of a challenge. Just remember that even a small amount of weight 2-5lbs can have a huge effect on the difficulty of the movement.

    As always let us know what you thought of this workout and what workouts/exercises you may want to see in future videos.
