10 Minute Abs Workout
This is a very quick but very effective 10 minute abs and obliques workout that you can do anywhere, anytime. All you need is ten minutes, and an exercise mat or a spot of carpet (or another otherwise moderately forgiving surface)
6. Upper Body Tabata Workout - Intense 60 Minute Back, Shoulders, and Arms Workout
Upper Body Tabata Workout
This one hour at home upper body workout requires only a set of dumbbells, but in all reality, a lack of equipment is not enough of an excuse to keep you from attempting this routine – you will be doing enough reps that you will be feeling it in your muscles, even if you don’t use any weight at all. If you don’t have any weights at home, focus on working against yourself throughout the entire routine and you will still get in a great workout for the arms, back, and shoulders.
7. Cannon Beach HIIT Cardio Workout - Fast High Intensity Interval Training Cardio Routine
Quick HIIT Cardio Workout
This workout is an excellent way to wake yourself up at any time during the day, particularly if you are stuck at a desk job all day. With that said, we don’t recommend that you jump straight into a high intensity workout like this one from a dead start. For example, if you’ve been sitting at a computer desk all day long, you are going to want to walk around for a few minutes before you start into a moderately demanding routine like this one so that you make sure that you aren’t going to shock your system too drastically, or end up working out on cold muscles and needlessly injuring something.
8. HIIT the Deck Cardio - At Home High intensity Interval Training Workout
HIIT the Deck Cardio
If you have tried any of our “When I say Jump” HIIT routines, you will be familiar with the concept of this one. When we say “Down”, hit the deck – Essentially, you are stopping whatever you are doing, no matter what part of a repetition that you are at, and dropping to the floor in a high plank (yes, this is an undercover burpee, but we have cleverly disguised under a thin veil of fun unpredictability, so that you hopefully comply). Don’t try to move at the same exact pace as we do in the video; move as fast or as slow as you like, so that you can react quickly & naturally to the “Down” commands.
9. Fast & Effective Bodyweight Upper Body Workout - Tone Upper Body at Home in Just 6 Minutes
Fast Bodyweight Upper Body Workout
There are ten different bodyweight exercises for the upper body. We will be doing each for just 30 seconds before we move immediately into the next interval. This is a fast moving video with no rest periods at all; we move directly from one exercise to another, so watch the top left corner of your screen towards the end of each 30 second interval for a preview of the upcoming move.
10. Upper Body Superset Workout with Fat Burning Cardio Intervals - Arm, Chest, Back & Shoulder Workout
Upper Body Superset Workout with Fat Burning Cardio Intervals
Between the strength training and the cardio intervals, this workout is a calorie burning powerhouse. Aside from the initial calorie burn, it’s an opportunity to build lean muscle, and with time and diligence, you can raise your resting metabolism. Many of the exercises engage a lot more than just the muscles of the upper body, though this routine focuses most intensely on the shoulders, arms, chest, and upper back. This workout is appropriate for both men and women.
