Home Workout #1: Get Your HIIT On

HIIT it and Quit it!

Do it NOW! This is a total body circuit. It’s 10 minutes long and consists of very intense plyo mixed with planks, hamstring bridges and push-ups.

Remember: You don’t need long workouts or fancy equipment to get a killer body. Less is more!

Equipment Required:

  • Shock-absorbing flooring, preferably.
  • I like to drink BCAAs to help protect muscle while doing a fasted workout.
  • I also like to wear a heart rate monitor to record the zone my heart rate is in and the calories I am burning.

Make sure to give each exercise all of your effort; otherwise, you are not going to benefit from metabolism-boosting effects of HIIT. For the best fat burning result do this workout prior to eating and wait at least 2 hours post workout before eating.  Don’t forget your heart rate monitor so you can see what you are burning!

This circuit consists of 8 exercises. Set your timers for 30 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. Repeat a second round on your own! If you are feeling fully of energy go for a third!

  1. High Knees
  2. Squats
  3. Plank
  4. Pushups
  5. Ice Skaters
  6. Single Leg Hamstring Bridge
  7. Jumping Jack Squats
  8. Burpees
