Good news: You need only your bodyweight for this cardio circuit workout, part of our month long no-equipment #TeamSELF 2020 Spring Fitness Challenge—and with just five exercises, you can get through it in about 20 minutes. But you are going to have to push yourself.
The moves in this sequence are HIIT style, meaning you’ll alternate quick, intense efforts with short recovery periods. For those quick bursts you’ll want your effort (which is completely unique to you) to be somewhere from 7 to 9 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being an all-out effort. Again, don’t worry about reps. You may complete more reps of one exercise than another, which is totally okay. Just keep moving with good form.
Scroll down for Day 2’s HIIT cardio circuit workout, making sure to warm up first (here’s a warm-up sequence to try), and don’t forget to check out the full month of workouts here, or go to the workout calendar here.
Do each move below for your selected period of time and rest. At the end of all the moves, rest for 60 seconds. That’s one circuit. Do the entire circuit three to five times. After your last circuit, try the Bonus Move for 60 seconds.
- Option 1: 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off
