Description

Perseus II is a HIIT workout tailored to your level of fitness. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training.

HIIT is one of the most popular and effective training methods. Not only does it burn fat; it also challenges your muscles. High-intensity exercise phases (40 seconds) alternate with recovery phases (20 seconds). You can rest for up to 90 seconds after each round. Repeat the circuit 4-5 times.

Always make sure that your exercise is clean and controlled and keep your body under tension.

This foodspring video shows you how to do jumping jacks correctly. Jumping jacks are exercises that work your full body - and not only your circulatory system, but also your muscles and your endurance. Stand upright with your arms at your sides, hands touching your thighs. Now bring your arms to the side and up over your head until your fingertips touch, while jumping in the air to land with your feet spread apart. Then jump your feet back together while bringing your arms back down to your sides.
2. Military Plank
40 sec.

This foodspring video shows you how to do a military plank correctly. This type of plank demands extra balance and strength from your core. Start in a half push-up: your elbows are on the floor under your shoulders, while your shoulders, belly and glutes are tensed. Now raise yourself up higher by putting first one hand, then the other, onto the floor in the place your elbow used to be. You will end up on your hands and toes. Now take it back down one by one until you're back on your elbows and toes. Make sure your hips are always parallel to the floor. Move slowly and make sure your belly and glutes are always tight to keep your stability.
