Fitness // Sarah Link // 4 June 2015

We hear it all the time: “I’m short on time, what can I do?!”, or “I don’t have time for a full workout, so what’s the point?”. If you’ve said (or thought) this, we have news for you. Even if you don’t have much time, you can STILL work your muscles and burn those calories!

This abs session will blast your core and get you engaged and feeling great.

The workout:

  • Mountain Climbers 10
  • Plank 30 sec
  • Mountain Climbers 20
  • Plank 30 sec
  • Mountain Climbers 30
  • AMRAP Bicycle Crunch

2. Butt Carver Workout 1

Getting that booty in shape with a workout may look simple…but this butt blast will have you working up a sweat in no time.

The workout:

  • Backwards lunge x 12 (each side)
  • Squat jumps x 12
  • Wag The Tail x 6 (each side)
  • Rest and REPEAT x 3!

3. Butt Carver Workout 2

TABATA training is all about getting a LOT done, in a short time….and this second butt workout has it all. You’ll definitely feel the burn. Do this workout regularly and watch that booty tighten and get strong.

  • Extra challenge: Do all hip raises with the single leg option (harder than double leg!!).

5. No-Wobble Workout

    I previously completed the 12WBT, I’d love to purchase a variety of Michelles’ cardio workouts/ toning etc workouts. It’s a shame there’s nothing available other than purchasing the 12wbt again to get the work outs.

      If you purchase her one active equipment, there’s a DVD included for that particular kit. I got the kettle bell workout and omg I almost died haha.
