Beginner Workout Challenge week 4: Full Body HIIT workout

Exercises

Modified star jumps

Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart. Step your right foot out to the side as you raise both arms out to the side and above your head. Step your right foot back in and lower your arms and repeat with your left foot.

All-fours plank push-up

On all fours, slowly lower onto your right elbow, then your left elbow. With your core switched on, raise yourself back onto your right hand and then your left hand. Repeat the process again, but start from the left-hand side.

Slow mountain climbers

Come down to the ground with your hands under your shoulders and up on your toes. Slowly step one foot off the ground and squeeze your knee towards your chest. Place it back on the floor and do the same thing with the other leg. Keep your core tight - try not to stick your bum up in the air!

Sumo squats

Stand tall with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart and your toes pointing out at 2 o'clock with your right foot and 10 o'clock with the left. Keep your chest up as you bend through your knees and lower down into a squat. Push your feet into the ground and squeeze your glutes to raise back up to the starting position
