This 15 minute interval workout has 6 exercises, most are done with a sandbag and half of them, every second exercise, is a squat based exercise. There are some great variations to change it up and they are intermixed with ab and core strengthening and tightening exercises, so again we are hitting legs, butt and abs.  High intensity interval training (HIIT)  workouts are known and proven to burn fat, improve endurance and build strength simultaneously.

When doing interval workouts, to get the most out of them, make sure to have an interval timer and a journal to write the workout and your reps and times in, so you can keep track of and see your progress. It can be very motivating and encouraging. The sandbag can be substituted for another weight,  but if you were to only invest in one piece of equipment, after the interval timer, this would be the one. It is a favorite item in my home gym.

90 Degree Sandbag Crunches

 

Lying on mat lift  legs up at a 90 degree angle and bend knees so they also form a 90 degree angle (if you were turned upright you would look like you are sitting in a chair). Place sandbag on top of shins and while holding up sandbag crunch body up with arms at side of body hands reaching out to touch the sides of the sandbag. Each sandbag touch is one rep. Try to keep legs in 90 degree angles, as much as possible.
