How to perform this HIIT upper body workout:

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is a jump rope, your body, an exercise mat, and some space to move around) and can be done in any timeframe that you have (15 -30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 3-6 rounds) 

As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.

1 Round:

  1. 100 jump rope (or jumping jacks if you don't have a jump rope)
  2. 16 total partial push-ups (3 partial push-ups with 1 plyo push-up, 4x)
  3. 16 side plank & twist (8 each side)
  4. 16 shuffle planks (8 each side)
