8 HIIT Exercises at Home
These workouts are an amazing way to burn fat and calories without the boring 25 minutes on a treadmill or elliptical. The best part about this HIIT workout is you can do it on its own for a sweaty cardio session or add to the beginning or end of any gym day.
I love lifting weights and finishing off my workout with a HIIT workout to feel the extra burn! No matter what fitness level you are at, you can always get a great sweaty workout with this HIIT.
High Intensity Interval Training Workout
To complete this workout, you will need dumbbells but can be complete with no equipment! **If you do not have access to dumbbells try switching out the deadlifts for planks. Do each movement for 30 seconds with a 10 second rest in between. Once you have completed all movements, start the workout over again for a total of 3 sets! Take a longer break in between your 3 sets.
Start off in a push-up position and raise your knee to your chest, pause then move your foot back to the pushup position. Do this same movement with your other leg. This move is basically high knees but at a horizontal angle! Make sure to keep your hands planted on the floor during the whole movement.
Start with your feet together. Step forward with one leg and squat down so your knee is at a 90- degree angle. Bring your foot back to the starting spot. Do this action alternating legs to complete your lunge set.
Start with your feet shoulder width apart. Squat down keeping your back straight and your knees at a 90-degree angle. Jump up into the air and bend your knees into a squat position as you land.
Lay down on your back with your feet planted on the ground. Use your abs to pull your back off the ground, bending at your waist. Touch your toes and release back down to your flat position.
Start standing in place, bend and the waist and place your hands on the ground. Both feet at the same time, jump backward into a pushup position. Bring your feet back to where they started and stand up returning to your normal starting pose.
Find a sturdy surface such as a box at the gym, park bench, or a wide chair. Make sure there is enough room for both feet to be planted shoulder-width apart. Start by standing in front of your “box” jump on top with both feet at the same time. Plant them on top of the surface about shoulder-width apart. Step down one foot at a time.
Grab two dumbbells and stand with your feet shoulder width apart. With a slight bend in the knee, bend at your waist while squeezing your glutes. Keep bending till your back is horizontal. Hinge back up to a standing position. Make sure to keep your feet planted strong and push through your heels and squeeze those buns when coming back up!
If you do not have a jump rope available (like me in this photo) you can always pretend jump in the same spot up and town while doing tiny arm circles with your arms. Still gets the heart pumping and the sweat coming.
