If your inner couch potato has left you with a few extra pounds, then Michelle Bridges, Australia’s top weight-loss expert and author of the book Total Body Transformation, is your new best friend. She’s put together a simple, 5-minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout consisting of 10 moves that’ll get your heart rate up, torch calories, and give your metabolism the jumpstart it needs to shed that weight. The best part? It requires absolutely no equipment at all and can be done anywhere — at the gym, in your living room, or at the park.
1 / 10 Warm-up
Michelle recommends stretching after the workout, when muscles are warm. Before you begin the circuit, jog lightly (in place, around a track, or on a treadmill), jump rope, or perform another light cardio activity for 5 minutes, aiming to raise your heartbeat over 150. Then perform each of the following exercises for 30-second intervals.
