Fitness trainer Kayla Itsines shared a new video on Instagram showing four exercises that focus on abs and legs. While abdominal and leg workout routines can be challenging, these exercises can be done at home without equipment. As she talked about the exercises, she said in the caption that you would certainly feel the “burn”. They are part of their HIIT cardio and abs program, which includes a series of “fast, challenging, and paced workouts that don’t compromise on intensity”.

Previously, Kayla had shared another video that focused on the lower body. She shared the demonstration video and wrote, “This particular workout focuses on the lower body with a hint of abs, of course.” She added that the only tool you need for this routine is a jump rope. “If you don’t have one, that’s fine too – you can do air skipping (no rope), high knees, or mountaineering!” She added.
The entire routine was divided into three rounds. The following exercises were built into each circle:
1. Lateral Lunge & Knee-Up (24 reps, 12 per side)
- Skip (30 seconds)
- Modified Jump Lunge (16 reps, 8 per side)
- 1 & 1/2 burpee (30 seconds)
- Glute Bridge Walkout (30 seconds)
- Side Plank & Hip Abduction (60 seconds, 30 seconds per side)
- Knee-to-knee up (30 seconds)
Each of the rounds must be run three times, added Kayla.

If you are just starting to exercise or are returning to exercise after a long break, it is always a good idea to take breaks between exercises until you understand your body and its demands.
