Description

Pico das Torres II will make your abs burn. This HIIT workout is made for your six-pack.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is one of the most popular and most effective training methods. Not only does it burn fat; it also challenges your muscles.

Do each of the 5 exercises for 40 seconds. Take a 20-second break before starting the next exercise. You can then rest for up to 90 seconds. Repeat the circuit 4-5 times. If the beginner sit-ups are too easy, you can try butterfly sit-ups instead. Always make sure that your exercise is clean and controlled and keep your body under tension.

Warm up well before you start training! Have fun with our workout.
