Correct me if I'm wrong, but in my opinion we all want tight, toned abs, and we all want to live a long and healthy life. Well guess what? Adding core exercises to your routine achieves both these things, if done correctly.

I got together with Dubai born and raised personal trainer, Pilates instructor and F45 HITT training coach Huda Heidari who has selflessly performed (I've copied a couple, just for lols) six exercises targetting all major muscle groups, with an emphasis on the core, and whilst incorporating movements that will bring your heart rate up.

Even better, this core-focused F45 Style HIIT circuit workout can be done anywhere and without any equipment.

The exercises....

1. 10 mountain climbers - followed by 5 tuck jumps
2. Crunch with leg raise - elbows to knees
3. Jumping lunge with torso twist
4. Inchworm
5. Flutter kicks - shoulders up
6. Plank - 4 alternate leg lifts - 4 alternate shoulder taps

The timings...

Work for 40 seconds, rest for 20 seconds. Perform 2 sets per exercise and complete 2 laps of the whole circuit with a 1 minute break in-between the laps.


(Psst. Advanced level trainees can do 3 or 4 sets per station)
