Hang Time

Hang Time                                       

 

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.
