Try this nonstop circuit designed to tighten up your whole body.
What it is: A four-station body-weight circuit. You start with two stabilized exercises performed under control; hanging leg raises and walking lunges, then finish off with a pair of explosive moves: clapping push ups and squat jumps. Try to set a manageable pace.
Why it works: The stabilized exercises serve as active recovery from the explosive work. Since you are using a different leg-raise variation on each set, you will hit your abs and obliques from a variety of angles. This is a total-body HIIT that will have the sweat pouring off you – and leave your entire core sore the next day.
The Hang Time Workout
- Hanging Leg Raises – 10 reps
- Walking Lunge – 10 each leg
- Clapping Push Up – 5 to 10 reps
- Squat Jump – 30 seconds
Quick Tip: The goal isn’t speed, it is control. If you swing your legs, you remove core activation from the equation.
