Kayla Itsines listened when you all said that finding equipment and figuring out how to train at home (and in small spaces) was becoming a challenge. To help you all maintain a consistent workout routine and to take the stress away from trying to figure out how to create a plan, she created a new program: BBG Zero Equipment.
"I created BBG Zero Equipment to help make working out at home as simple as possible by removing the need for equipment and giving women the tools and confidence to work out effectively using their bodyweight," Itsines said. Her new program features high-intensity bodyweight workouts that are true to the signature 28-minute BBG workouts, in addition to featuring express workouts ranging from 12 to 15 minutes. The goal of this 16-week program is to improve your fitness level, core stability, and overall strength, and we're superexcited about it!
To give you a taste of what you can expect, Itsines created this express abs workout, and it only takes 13 minutes to do. Grab a yoga mat (or head to a soft surface) and follow along to the above video. And if you'd like an in-depth description on how to perform each exercise, continue reading. If you loved this workout (which we're sure you will), check out the full program on the Sweat app.
Start off with five minutes of cardio and light stretching to warm up your muscles. This workout should be completed as a circuit, taking little to no rest in between each exercise. Itsines said to perform each exercise for 30 seconds. Once you finish one round of the circuit take 30 seconds of rest, and repeat for a total of three rounds. If you need more rest, feel free to take it. Be sure to cool down and stretch after you finish the workout.
