Get ready to sweat while your core trembles! This double whammy routine gets your heart pumping while boosting stability in your abs, back and glutes. There’s no time for gym selfies in this routine—get ready to work hard if you want to reap the rewards.
HOW IT WORKS:
Complete 5 rounds of the following circuit, resting for a maximum of 10-15 seconds between exercises, and 60 seconds between circuits.
WHY IT WORKS:
The focus here is to engage your core and legs; you’ll be feeling your glutes, abs, shoulders, back and legs. Since this routine engages your entire body, you will raise your metabolism for hours.
