As a warm-up, Hannah recommends a 10-minute slow cardio boost, followed by a set of different plank variations such as big plank, elbow plank, side plank or side plank dips for 5 to 10minutes.
1 – DEVIL PRESS 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off Place two dumbbells on the floor roughly your shoulder-width apart from each other. Engage the core and perform a slow burpee to grab the handles of each dumbbell. Your chest should touch the floor. Jump explosively to your feet, never taking your hands from the dumbbells, and snatch them from the floor. Finish the move by locking them over your head, with your body fully stretched. From there, and while holding the dumbbells, get back on the floor for a burpee and repeat. VIDEO 2 – SQUAT PRESS WITH ONE ARM 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off – change arms halfway through Stand with your feet a little wider than your hips distance. Place a suitable weight dumbbell over your shoulder, with your elbows bent. Lower into a squat and, in a continuous movement, press the dumbbell overhead. Make sure you keep your core engaged, back straight and chest proud. Repeat. VIDEO 3 – FRONT PRESS VARIATION 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off Standing tall, pick two light dumbbells. Bring them to your chest, palms facing up and elbows bent. Stretch your arms out, straight in front of you, keeping your back straight and core contracted. Repeat for the indicated time. VIDEO 4 – PUSH-UP SIT BACK 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off Place your hands over two dumbbells on the floor, a bit wider than shoulder-width apart. After grabbing the dumbbells and engaging your core, perform a push-up. While getting up, push your arms and chest back, bending your knees. Make sure you are at a position that looks like a child pose, without letting the knees touching the floor, downward dog position, always holding your dumbbells. Return to the start position and repeat. VIDEO 5 – KNEELING INTO SQUAT JUMP 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off Begin in a kneeling position over an exercise mat. Keeping your backs straight, lower your glutes slightly and bring your leg forward at a time. You’re in a squat position — now, jump explosively, extending your arms at your sides. Land in a squat position and drop one knee at a time to return to the start position. Repeat. VIDEO Talk about an intense full-body HIIT workout. Here are more workouts for you to try:
