This 12 minute Ugi workout is a HIIT workout made up of all Ugi exercises. There are 5 exercises and you go through them in intervals, with the feature exercise – Ugi Cross Core Abs getting repeated. I am always looking for ways to make sit ups more interesting, and I liked the way this exercise works the core and obliques. The Ugi exercises may look easy,  but that is only until you actually do them, and then you realize it takes a lot of deeper core strength to balance and keep form, holding onto or supported by that seemingly innocent weighted ball.  Each of the exercises in this Ugi workout is a new one for me, or a different variation, and the time went by really fast!
