·2-min read

Have you heard the news? Joe Wicks isn't satisfied. He isn't satisfied making the nation fitter, faster and stronger; he wants to make the nation happier too. But he's doing in the only way that he knows how, one workout at a time, and starting with this Feel Good HIIT workout, programmed exclusively for Men's Health UK.

So if you fancy taking a step towards a happier you, let's get to it.

Wicks' workout is simple. It's four exercises, completed three times, with one minute of rest between rounds.

The workout begins with a squat into a front kick. "Sit down to squat and [as you rise] drive that leg up in front, each time getting nice and low into the squat, keeping the back straight and driving through the heels of the feet as you stand up," advises Wicks.

Once you've finished with your squats into front kicks, move straight onto your second exercise: press-ups into kick throughs. "You're going to feel this in your chest and triceps, but also your core's really having to work hard to get that leg out and come back."

After press-ups into kick throughs, move onto chest-to-floor burpees with a tuck jump. "If it's too intense you could always do a half burpee without the tuck jump, but try your best," says Wicks.

The final move of Wicks Feel Good HIIT is a reverse lunge into a knee drive, with 30 seconds spent on each leg. "The aim here is to drive that knee back into a reverse lunge, come up, drive the knee up and repeat."

That's round one done. Take a minute to rest before completing all four exercises twice more. "The great thing about this workout is it's short but it's intense. You're going to elevate your heart rate, you're going to feel better afterward, it's going to change your mood and you're going to feel happier. I know you might not feel it now, but by the end of it you're going to feel like a new person," says Wicks.
