5 Minute HIIT Pilates: October Obliques

October 8, 2018

HIIT Pilates combines all the principles from high-intensity interval training and Pilates to:

✔ burn fat

✔ boost metabolism

✔ sculpt/tone

✔ release stress

✔ increase flexibility

 

For October, we’re focusing on obliques because not only is it important to have strong obliques for functional movement in everyday life, but these exercises are great for sculpting and tightening those side areas of the body. So say goodbye to those "love handles" and let's get moving!

 

As always, feel free to reverse the order of the workout if you want to tackle HIIT first.

 

Are you ready?
