I hope that you’ve been reaping full benefits of these quick, challenging and “do-it-anywhere” workout series! Today, we’ll be firing-up your core and upper body with this super effective fat burning “Upper Body & Core HIIT Workout” circuit! In this sweat session, we’ll be putting extra emphasis on our entire mid-section and shoulder region since most of these moves are starting off from a plank position which activates these precise muscle groups!

Upper Body & Core HIIT Workout: Breakdown
- Start off with a 5 minute warm-up session (you can warm-up using your favorite piece of cardio equipment or with your own bodyweight (jumping jacks, jog in place, etc.), as long as you get that heart rate up!
- Set up your interval timer to 8 rounds of 30sec/10sec. intervals
- Complete 1 set of the exercises listed below, following the order in which they are shown (30sec. exercise/10sec. rest)
- Once you’ve completed the 8 exercises, take a short break (about 1 minute or more) and repeat for a total of 2 sets
- Your goal is to complete these exercises as quickly as possible, with minimal breaks in between each exercise while keeping a good form throughout the entire workout
- If any of these exercises are too difficult for you, you can modify them with an easier variation or take longer breaks in between exercises (more than 10 sec. / example: 20-30sec. breaks) or again, shorten the exercise interval time (20 sec. instead of 30 for example)
- Don’t forget to cool-down and stretch those muscles
