Amazing Abs In No Time
Try this High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout for a killer core circuit which needs no equipment at all — even better, it’s over in just 15 minutes!
Think you need to do crunches non-stop to build the core of your dreams? Think again! This standing ab workout will challenge your core strength and stability, and is bound to leave your abs burning (in a good way!).
No More Boring Cardio
We all love to hate cardio, but there’s no need to put off your cardio sessions just because they’re boring!
Creative Cardio Series
Mix up your usual cardio workouts with one of these creative cardio workouts for the gym.
Long, slow, steady cardio might be your favourite thing — we’re not judging!
But if it’s not, you don’t have to put yourself through the misery of LISS (Low Intensity Steady State cardio, think a brisk walk or a slow cycle, usually 45 minutes or more).
Interval training not only burns more calories after you’ve finished up at the gym, it also burns more fat while preserving your lean muscle mass.
Try this interval workout in place of your usual cardio to burn more calories in half the time.
Cardio is all about keeping your heart rate up and being cardiovascular fit — you do not have to run in order to achieve this. Challenge yourself by combining some basic exercises together.
This no-run cardio is a strength based cardio workout that will leave you gasping for more.
All it takes is a few simple steps over 7–8 weeks. It sounds like a long time, but it isn’t in the grander scheme of things.
Start today, and in two months you’ll be running free for 30 minutes. Click here to find out how!
Building Strength & Muscle
Super Sets For Super Success
Rest periods in between exercises don’t have to be wasted time.
Supersets are two exercises that are performed back to back, with no rest in between, for different muscle groups — basically, you’re resting one muscle while working another! They’re efficient, especially if you have limited time to train.
The best part about this arm workout is you only need 1–2kg dumbbells, or you can use kitchen items like canned goods (easy peasy!).
Our bodies can get complacent if we do the same exercises over and over, so throwing in a wildcard workout now and again can really kick start your results.
Strong lean legs are THE summertime goal. Try this lower body workout to shape and tone your legs fast!
Stretching and mobility are the most skipped parts of any fitness regimen, but also probably the most misunderstood.
There are many benefits to ensuring stretching is part of your workout, most prominently is that it really helps improve your exercise form. This mobility workout is perfect for improving your range of motion & technique while squatting.
