Here’s a basic 20-minute HIIT workout designed to help you lose belly fat by burning calories to decrease your overall body fat, revealing a slimmer, leaner tummy.
Do each exercise below for 40 seconds, and then take a 20-second rest. Push yourself hard during each 40-second interval.
Perform the entire circuit twice for a 20 minute workout, or 3 times for a 30 minutes workouts.
Plank With Bunny Hop
Start in a plank position with your feet touching. Pull your abs in and jump your feet to the right, bringing your knees toward your right elbow. Your torso will twist to the right. Jump your feet back to plank to complete one rep.
Do a hop on the other side, and continue alternating sides for 40 seconds. Rest for 20 seconds.
Start in the plank position, with your shoulders over your wrists, your body in one straight line, and your feet together. Like the motion of jumping jacks, jump your legs wide apart then back together to complete a rep. Jump as quickly as you want, but keep your pelvis steady and don’t let your booty rise toward the ceiling.
Complete as many plank jacks as you can in 40 seconds. Take a 20-second rest.
Stand with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders, feet parallel or toes slightly turned out. Bend your knees, lowering your hips deeply. Bring your thighs parallel to the floor and bend the elbows, keeping weight back in your heels. Rise back up, straightening the legs completely, squeezing the glutes at the top of the movement to get the most out of the exercise. This counts as one rep.
Do as many reps as you can in 40 seconds. Then take a 20-second rest.
Lie on your back, and reach your arms rigidly to your side, off the floor. Lift your legs off the floor and point them, so they are at about a 45-degree angle. Lift your head so your shoulders are off the floor as well.
As you are ready to begin, lift your upper torso off the floor and bend your knees. You can lean back to make this move harder or come up more to make it easier. Slowly lower your upper body back down to the floor, straightening out your legs as you do so. Stop when your back is on the floor, but not your head, shoulders, or legs. These completes one rep.
Do as many v-sits as you can in 40 seconds. Rest for 20 seconds.
Start standing with the feet hip-distance apart. Lower into a crouching squat with your hands on the floor. Do a squat thrust by jumping your feet back into a plank position. Do one basic push-up, bending the elbows then straightening back to plank. Step or jump the feet forward to the hands and come into a squat. Do an explosive jump straight up, getting as much height as you can.
Do as many burpees as you can for 40 seconds. And then take a 20-second rest.
