Here, we go through a simple high intensity interval training (HIIT) session that'll help get you lean and shredded in no time at all. And what's more, it won't cost you a penny!

As we stated in our previous article, you really don't need to spend money on gym memberships to get into shape. You don't need to be a fan of sport either.  All you need is to set aside 25 minutes, three days a week, and you're half way there.

If you're looking to get that desirable Brad Pitt from (Fight Club) athletic but muscular physique, then follow our training guide that'll get you shredded in a matter of weeks! In this second part of our guide, we recommend trying this HIIT session... 

For each set, exercise for 45 seconds and then rest for 20 seconds. Repeat for 20 minutes, with a final one minute burst at the end.

Mountain Climbers

Start off with some intense mountain climbers, making sure your form is good and your legs are pumping hard.  Mountain climbers benefit the whole physique and are particularly good for the abs and your lower back.


Making sure you squat as far down as possible, be sure to pump those legs fast in order to get the full burn. Squats are excellent for your legs, core and buttocks.  They'll help get you shredded in no time. 

Star Jumps

Keep those legs pumping with a set of super-fast star jumps.  This is a great alternative to the skipping rope.  Star jumps is a very effective fat burner, so make sure you give it your all. 


This one is going to hurt, but with no pain comes no gain.  Doing burpees will be very difficult at first, but as you get fitter you'll be able to do more of them, and quicker too.  This exercise is great your the whole body, from chest and arms all the way down to your core and legs. 


Bust out some fast crunches to get those abs and core working overtime.  Try and crunch as fast as possible, working through the burn.  You'll have your six pack in no time at all. 

Repeat this cycle until the 20 minutes is up. Finish off with an intense one minute running on the spot. 

Stay tuned for the third part of our guide to getting the perfect physique.
