The Creed II boxing HIIT workout that definitely packs a punch

Creed II hit the big screen on November 30th

To mark Creed's release, here is a HIIT workout put together by personal trainer Harry Jameson.

Comprising 10 sets of three-minute rounds, it's designed to replicate the aspects of fitness and conditioning you need to step into the ring.

With each round, work for 60 seconds, then rest for 30 seconds. Repeat once more, and that's the three minute round complete.

There are 10 in total.


ROUND 1

Warm up: You'll want to include continuous, dynamic movements mobilising your entire body. This workout taps into every aspect of your fitness.

Pick any two from - downward dog, pigeon stretch, planks, side planks and hollow holds.

Hold each stretch for 30 seconds, then rest for 30. Repeat once more.

ROUND 2

Skipping: Pretty self-explanatory. Skip for a minute, rest 30 seconds. Repeat once more. Burpees if you can't skip.

ROUND 3

Bag work: Perform a combination of jabs, hooks and uppercuts for a minute. Rest for 30, repeat once more.

ROUND 4

Dynamic core work: pick two from - toe taps, mountain climbers, high plank with shoulder taps and Russian twists.

Work for 60 seconds, rest 30, then repeat.
