WORK IT Anywhere | 3 Top Anywhere Workouts

Oooo. It's been a while since we had a good fitness post on the blog. 

At the moment I'm currently loving little, sweaty workouts and ways of training which you can do with little or no equipment, absolutely anywhere in any time! Ways to get the blood pumping and heart racing and leave you nice and sweaty! 

I thought I'd share with you my 3 current favourite workouts you can quickly do anywhere or add onto any of your own workouts for an extra blast!


What is it?

Tabata is a popular form of HIIT (high intensity interval training). It consists of of 4 minutes of 20 second intervals with 10 seconds rest. You can then repeat this if you wish to make it last 8 minutes! I love this way of training for a quick and effective workout, or to add onto the end of a weight session! Set your timer and be ready to get a sweat on in a short space of time... 

The Workout

Tabata 1 (4 mins) :


Squat Jumps

Tabata 2 (4 mins) : 

Mountain climbers

Squat Thrusts 

15 Minute AMRAP

What is it? 

AMRAP mean As Many Rounds As Possible. And I love these little workouts! It means that in the slotted amount of time (15 mins), you have to try and complete the set circuit as many times as possible. This is a really good way to structure a workout, and be able to repeat again to try and beat your previous record. I love this way of training to warm up before a workout, add to the end, if I'm short on time, need motivation and want to watch my fitness level improve. 

The Workout 

10 Burpees

15 Squat Jumps

20 Mountain Climbers 

10 Push Ups 

15 Leg Raises 

50 Skips (if you don't have a skipping rope, imagine you do!)

Pyramid Countdown

What is it? 

A Pyramid or ladder workout is where you start at a certain amount of reps for an easier exercise, and reduce the reps for a different exercise which gets harder. You then reverse it and work your way back up the ladder! I love these workouts for either cardio or abs, they're a great way to build up a sweat or push your body to it's limits!

The Workout


10 V - Sits 

20 Reverse Crunches 

30 Toe Touches 

40 Russian Twists 

50 Mountian Climbers 

60 Second Plank 

Cardio/Full Body 

50 Jumping Jacks 

40 High Knees

30 Squat Jumps/Body Weight Squats 

20 Lunge Jumps/Reverse Lunges 

10 Burpees 

So there you go, set your timers and get sweaty! Let me know if you give any of these a go and let me know some of your favourite ways to train!
