HIIT 20 Minute Workout | Self Magazine

Just about every fitness trainer, from famous ones like Jillian Michaels to not-so-famous ones like Champlain Valley CrossFit owner and head coach Jade Jenny, shares a clear message. If you want to lose belly fat, you need to focus on two main things. First, dial in your diet, eating whole foods and ditching sugar and processed crap. Second, when it comes to exercise, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts are a must — they're shown to target belly fat.

Here's a basic 20-minute HIIT workout designed to help you lose belly fat by burning calories to decrease your overall body fat, revealing a slimmer, leaner tummy. This workout alternates between jumping rope and bodyweight moves, so all you need is a jump rope. If you don't have one, just pretend (it works!) or run in place instead.

The Workout

Directions: Perform each exercise below for 40 seconds, then take a 20-second rest. Push yourself hard during each 40-second interval. Perform the entire circuit twice for a 20 minute workout, or three times for a half-hour workout. Cool down with three to five minutes of stretching.
