No Time To Workout? Try HIIT!

You've just spent a long day at work, studying or running around after the kids and the last thing you feel like doing is a tedious 1.5 hour workout, am I right?! Well, have you heard of HIIT?

HIIT is High Intensity Interval Training. It's a workout that combines high and low intensity exercise to compact your workout! You alternate between quick, intense bursts of exercise and low intensity or recovery periods. You can incorporate body weight exercises, cardio equipment and strength equipment!

HIIT has been shown to increase your metabolism, even after your workout. Its quick and convenient, 30 minutes or less, and you can do it anywhere! Whats not to love?!

HIIT should be slowly introduced into your workout regime. So try it once a week and then gradually build up to 2-3 days a week maximum.

Try out this HIIT workout and see how you go!

Do as many reps as you can of each exercise in a minute, after you've completed all the exercises, have a 30 second rest.

- Step ups

- Tricep dips

- Plank

- Jumping squats

- Wall sit

- Sit ups

Do it for 5 rounds and you've just completed a 32.5 minute workout!

 

Love the journey, J.
