The Perfect Power Couple Workout
Get your heart rate up and your body fat down in just 15 minutes with this high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout. Prepare for 5 intense rounds of 3 fat-burning exercises. Each round is repeated twice with a 10- to 20-second break in-between sets. Once you repeat each round 3 times, rest for 60 seconds before starting the next round. Grab your timer (and your partner) and get started!
Round 1 consists of 3 exercises, 10 repetitions each. Complete all three exercises (squats, half burpees and mountain climbers) as quickly as possible with good technique. Rest 10-20 seconds before your next set. After you finish three sets, take a 60-second break before heading into round 2.
Ready for round 2? Let’s go!
You’re getting closer to the finish line! Keep up the good work.
Round 4 is all about power couples powering through together! Complete 10 reps of power knees on each leg followed by 10 power jacks. Head into sets 2 and 3 with the same intensity. And don’t forget to high-five your partner!
