Quick-High-Intensity-Kick-Your-Butt-Workout


The best thing about body weight exercises is that all you need is a space to workout in and a pair of running shoes. One of my favourite ways to workout is in short and quick, high intensity routines. This type of working out is effective because it gets your heart rate up, burns calories, and strengthens your core. Below is one of my favourite routines. Complete each of the following exercises for 30 seconds each, without rest in between exercises (total of 5 minutes). Repeat 3 times for a total of 15 minutes. It is important to focus on form - quality not quantity. If you are unfamiliar with any of the exercises below, google them on YouTube for a quick demo.

Burpees
Box run*
Box jump*
Mountain climber
High knees
Push ups
Squats
Rockstar hops
Walking lunges

*Use "Step" equipment if at a gym, or if at home use a step - literally
