This Ugi workout is a 15 minute workout with new Ugi exercises.  This new HIIT workout features the Ugi ball and goes through rounds of 6 different leg and abs exercises in rounds of intervals. High intensity interval training is the fastest and most effective way to shape your body. It has been proven to build muscle while helping you to lose body fat simultaneously better than any other form of training, and I know first hand, and second hand, that this works. 

Ugi workouts are not only fun but they are tough too. Ugi exercises often require balance and this requires you to use your stabilizing assisting muscles, which builds core strength. It’s like a heavy pillow ball and quite a unique and interesting piece of equipment to work with.  I love mine!

No Ugi?

That’s ok!  If you do not have an Ugi most of these exercises can be done using a medicine ball. For the bridge exercise, just do it with your feet on the floor, not raised on Ugi. You will also need a dumbbell or other weight for a few of these exercises. I used a 6 lb. dumbbell, but any weighted object can be substituted. So let’s get at it and let’s do this Ugi workout!
