This workout consists of a 4-minute warm-up, 9-minute circuit in an ABAB style format. It does not include a cool down as I find most people enjoy their own style of cool down and stretching, if you want a cool down this is my top pick for a simple cool-down set.
I’ve been a little off my fitness game the past few weeks but not to worry, I’m back and I have a brand new workout for you. It’s a HIIT routine so full of cardio and combined strength moves which is perfect for blasting off the fat from your post-holiday bellies. Not that there’s anything wrong with indulging on your holls, but we all get that gloom when we return, I’m here to put the sweat into your gloom and turn it into a sparkle.
You may want (but don’t need);
- A Tabata style timer,
- A yoga mat,
- A water bottle

I’m so glad to get back into my insanity style workouts. I’m not going to lie, I have enjoyed the time off but it really has made it twice as hard to get back into the routine. So for best results when you’re on your hols try and keep up with some basic routines to keep the blood flowing and muscles lively!
When recovering from your workouts please bare in mind that a healthy diet and protein aids muscle recovery, I use Myprotein as I have worked with them previously and they offer me amazing deals on their products. Feel free to use any of my codes throughout the site.
I hope you found this workout fun (and hard) but definitely something you could add to your weekly routine, I have thoroughly enjoyed creating this new workout and my butt is definitely paying the price for it today. If this workout doesn’t scream glutes then they will scream it for you.
Have a brilliant week,
