Since I love fitness, one thing I try to do everyday is workout.
I love all different types of fitness, but one of my favourites would have to be HIIT training.
What is HIIT?
HIIT is high intensity interval training; HIIT is consisted of short, INTENSE exercises. The intense bursts (usually between 30 seconds-1 minunte) are then followed by a recovery period (about 30 seconds-2 minutes). HIIT also boosts you metabolism, helps burn fat, and increases your aerobic and anaerobic endurance through out the day.
Be aware of how your body is feeling because HIIT is not for everyone.
I also enjoy HIIT workouts because the short intervals help seem like my workouts are going by a lot faster than steady-state cardio!
I love doing routines that are easy for me to do at home, but leave me feeling like I’ve worked very hard! HIIT can be easy to do at home. I will usually do these routines and maybe add some weight lifting after if I have the energy and time to do so!
These are a few of my favourite sites to get workout inspiration from.
Today I have a great workout for you. It is short, but intense!
Also there are many modifications you can make if this is too hard, feel free to only do the workout 3 or 5 times through, or do the push-ups on your knees, and you can even do just regular burpees.
Here are some links to show you examples of the following exercises:
1. Plank Jacks
2. Hand Release Burpees (at the 1:35 mark)
3. Squat Jumps
4. Plank Thrusts (like that, but don’t need to add the jump up after)
5. Reptile Push-Ups
6. Pendulum Jumps (at the 1:35 mark, and if you don’t have UGI or medicine ball, just place your hands on the ground!)
7. Gravity Defying Push-Ups
8. Oblique Mountain Climbers
Well, I’m off to grab some starbucks!
Tell me, what are your favourite type of workouts?
