by Rachelle on September 18, 2015

This heart-pumping, explosive, plyometric workout will help you burn tons of calories in 20 minutes, plus your metabolism will stay up for hours after your workout so you will continue to burn even more calories! Try these six moves for total body workout in just 20 minutes!

 

SquatsThe insanity workout uses multitasking moves so each exercise works multiple muscle groups. Here are six exercises taken from the popular Insanity DVD workout. Complete each of the following six exercises for one minute without stopping. Once you have completed one circuit (the six exercises for one minute each), rest for 60 seconds, and start again. Complete the circuit three times taking a one minute break between each circuit. This workout can be done every other day for noticeable results, fast!

 

The Warm Up

Warm up your muscles for 2-3 minutes before you start this workout. Try high knee running, jogging, jumping jacks, or jumping rope.

 

The Insanity Work Out

Complete each of the following moves for one minute. Rest for one minute between circuits and repeat two more times.

 

Upright Mountain Climbers

Run in place and raise your knees above your hips with each step. Reach up and down with your arms as if you are climbing an imaginary ladder while keeping your torso straight. Repeat quickly for 1 minute.

Stance Jacks

Stand with feet together, arms raised to chest level straight out to your sides like a T. Jump into a wide squat, pushing hips back as you reach left hand toward right foot, extend your right arm up into the air behind you. Jump back to start. Then jump into a wide squat again and this time reach with your right hand toward your left foot. Repeat quickly and continue alternating for 1 minute.

Ski Abs

Start in plank position, keep your feet together and hands firmly one the ground. Hop so your feet land next to your right hand. Hop back to starting plank position. Repeat on your left side and continue alternating on each side.   Do not let your butt rise above your shoulders. Continue alternating for 1 minute.

Power Squats

Perform a low jump into the squat position (legs just wider than shoulder width apart), then jump back into the standing position with your feet together. Repeat for 1 minute and don’t get lazy! Make sure to continue to squat down until your thighs are parallel to the ground!

The Heisman

Stand with feet hip-width apart, elbows bent, arms close to body. Hop on left foot, bringing right knee toward chest as you drive left arm forward, right arm back like a sprinter. Quickly hop onto your right foot, reversing the motion. Continue alternating quickly between feet for 1 minute.

Switch Kick

Sit with your knees bent, feet flat on the ground, palms behind you with your fingertips pointed toward your heels. Keep hands and feet planted, raise your hips off floor and alternate kicking your right leg and left leg, as high and as quickly as you can for 1 minute.

 

Workout Tips:

Push yourself to work hard through each exercise the entire time.

Have a bottle of water ready for breaks.

Do not eat immediately before working out.

Wear athletic shoes during the workout.

Remember to stretch after you complete the workout.
