No Equipment, No Excuses: Joe Wicks's Best Workouts (and Yes, We Stole His Line)

Amy Lawrenson

If you want simple, easy, quick and effective workouts, then there are few better people to turn to on Instagram and YouTube than Joe Wicks. Wicks's workouts are designed so that everyone can give them a go and get great results (he hasn't racked up 1.8 million followers on Instagram and over 300k subscribers on YouTube for nothing). What's key is that most of his workouts, just like his #leanin15 recipes take no longer than 15 minutes to complete so you can factor one in every day if you like. They also don't require tonnes of equipment or a pricey gym membership, which is another plus in their favour. You probably follow Wicks on Instagram, but have you visited his YouTube channel? It's a handy hub for all his full-length workout videos. We've collated seven of his best 15-minute HIIT workouts below, one for each day of the week (if you're feeling super energised).

The pyramid is where you work your way up in time and reps, before working your way back down. You start with 10 seconds of work, then 10 seconds of rest followed by 20 seconds of work, then 20 seconds of rest, once you reach the top of the pyramid, then you work your way back down. We won't spoil it with all the details, but this session is a real challenge.

If you're on holiday or jetting off soon, this is a great workout you can do on the beach early before it gets too hot or too busy with tourists. You could do it on a cool evening, but then we'd rather watch the sunset while drinking sundowners, don't know about you?

15 Minute Low Impact Workout

HIIT is great, but it's often high impact, which if you have dodgy knees or other joints make them impossible to take part in. Rather than miss out, Wicks has created a low-impact, boxing-based HIIT session for you to try.
