We all know how hard it can be to feel like you got a decent workout at home. One way to ensure you get a good sweat going is with a HIIT circuit.
HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is a way of exercising that involves timed bursts of highly cardiovascular exercise combined with shorter periods of rest or low-intensity exercise. For short workouts that accomplish a lot, HIIT is hard to beat. Not to mention it can be done with little to no equipment.
Here is a great 30 minute HIIT workout for you to try at home that will challenge your strength, endurance, and power!
3 sets of 40 seconds squats, 20 seconds jump squats
30 seconds of rest between sets
3 sets of 30 seconds work with 20 seconds rest
Split squat jumps and lateral jump burpees
3 sets of 20 seconds work with minimal / no rest between
Lateral bounds and mountain climbers
HIIT training is a great tool for fat loss and building stamina, but to really maximize your results I recommend combining interval training with healthy eating, your regular strength training routine, and even the occasional steady-state cardio workout.
Adding variety and mixing up your workouts will ensure that you’ll continue seeing results from your training.
