High-Intensity Interval Training has show to be one of the most effective ways to get a workout in during a short period of time.
HIIT exercises are the perfect workout when you don't have much time in your day. You will be doing intense max-effort exercises with short rest. Those intensity burst will help improve your overall cardiovascular health and physical performance. During HIIT workouts you will maximize the amount of calories you burn and will continue to burn throughout the day.
You will need a few things before you get started;
- Sweat towel
- Watch (you can also use the stop timer on your phone)
Now that you have everything you need, get ready to start sweating!
Do each exercise for 30 seconds
Side to Side
Put the Terra-Core vertical. Start standing on the Terra-Core and bring one leg down then the other. Then put one leg back on the terra-core then back to the other side.
Lay on your back with your legs raised perpendicular to your body and your knees bent at a 90-degree angle. Maintaining this 90-degree bend in the knees, lower one leg until your heel barely touches the ground and then raise it back to its starting position. Repeat this motion, alternating legs. (For added stability and balance, place your hands behind your head and grip the edge of the Terra-Core base.)
Start in plank position with your arms extended and hands under your shoulders, feet together. Your body should be in a straight line from your head to your heels. Jump both feet out to each side. Then Jump again and close your legs. Repeat.
Take a 30 second break and start new interval
Do each exercise for 45 seconds
Place both hands down on the Terra-Core's surface with your legs extended behind you in plank position. While keeping your core engaged and your body in a straight line, alternate bringing each knee in to your chest and back. Try to speed up this movement until you're "running" against the floor (but only so much as you can keep your core engaged through the entire range of motion).
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, weight in your heels, and your arms at your sides. Drop into a squat position. Place your hands on the floor and legs straight out like in a plank position. Jump your legs by your arms and jump up reaching your arms up.
Take a 30 second break and start new Interval
Do each exercise for 30 seconds
Place Terra Core in front of you horizontally. Step up onto the Terra Core with one leg while lifting the other knee up to your waist. Step back down and repeat your reps. Repeat on the other leg.
Place the Terra Core vertically on the floor while you straddle it in a standing position. Bring both legs in to jump on top of the Terra Core. Jump squat down to straddle the Terra Core focusing on pushing your glutes back and keeping your knees at 90 degrees. Repeat.
Start in plank position with your hands flat on the ground and the Terra-Core in front of you. Alternating one hand and then the other, move forward slightly as you move your hands from the floor up onto the dynamic surface and then back to the floor. Slightly re-position your feet in order to reach if needed. Remain engaged in your core to keep your body in a straight line throughout the entire movement, and repeat.
Start from the beginning and do all 3 intervals again.
