What It Is
This 30-minute HIIT ab workout is High Intensity Interval Training. It uses short, intense bursts of movement that will increase your heart rate while boosting your calorie burn like no other workout you’ve tried. This 30-minute HIIT ab workout is core-body focused, allowing you to strengthen and tone your entire core body, encompassing both your back and abs.
HIIT workouts are just that–high intensity–but with enough time and practice, everyone can reap the benefits. Chris will provide plenty of encouragement and give modifications as needed so that you can start seeing results no matter your current fitness level.
This 30-minute HIIT ab workout is made up of Tabata-style intervals which consist of 20 seconds of all-out effort followed by 10 seconds of active recovery for eight cycles in a row, totaling four minutes. We’ll do five Tabata intervals in total with 45 seconds in-between each interval—just enough time to catch your breath and go again. You’ll need a few sets of dumbbells and a mat for this workout.
Our dynamic 30-minute HIIT ab workout includes athletic drills and sculpting exercises such as full-body roll-ups, a variety of planks, and oblique side crunches. These power moves will bring your heart rate into your anaerobic zone. When your heart rate is in this zone, you will achieve a higher calorie burn in a shorter amount of time.
