HIIT style core workout 

Although I usually do my core workouts in the gym, sometimes I like to change things up a bit and do a HIIT (high intensity interval training) style workout at home. I am planning on doing a few of these HIIT style workout plans, targeted at different areas of your body so keep your eye out for more!

This particular workout is designed to burn fat and tone your core. I don’t have the best stamina in the world so I take rests when I need to but generally try to do one exercise straight after the other and have a 30 second – 1 minute break between circuits. I like how varied this workout is as I don’t have time to get bored of an exercise before moving on to the next one and if there’s something you particularly don’t like you can always switch it up.

This workout consists of planks, bicycle crunches, mountain climbers, leg raises, crunches, reverse crunches, jog in place and star jumps. If you’re unfamiliar with any of these exercises then I would highly recommend searching it on YouTube. There are some great demonstrations on there and you’ll be able to see why you do each exercise and what specific part of your body it targets.

So here is my current HIIT style core workout:

Circuit One

1 min leg raises

1 min star jumps

1 min reverse crunches

1 min mountain climbers

1 min crunches


Circuit Two

1 min reverse crunches

1 min bicycle crunches

2 mins jog in place

1 min mountain climbers


Circuit Three

1 min crunches

1 min mountain climbers

30 second plank

1 min bicycle crunches

30 second plank

1 min star jumps


Circuit Four

1 min mountain climbers

1 min reverse crunches

1 min crunches

2 mins jog in place

      Fitness is something you need to work on, just doing a little bit is enough, you should adjust workout plans to fit with what you can do and should never feel bad if you can’t do as much as somebody else xx
