A four-station bodyweight circuit designed by L.A.-based celebrity trainer Andy McDermott. You start with two stabilized exercises performed under control: hanging leg raises and walking lunges, then finish with a pair of explosive moves: clapping pushups and squat jumps. Try to set a manageable pace.
The stabilized exercises serve as active recovery from the explosive work. Since you’re using a different leg raise variation on each set, you’ll hit your abs and obliques from a variety of angles. This is total-body HIIT that will have the sweat pouring off you and leave your entire core sore the next day.
“The goal isn’t speed, it’s control,” McDermott says. “If you swing your legs, you remove core activation from the equation.”
DIRECTIONS: Set a timer for 10 minutes and do the following circuit nonstop.
