HIIT-600x363.jpg

As I mentioned in my How I Workout post, I do various types of workouts such as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and weight training. When I woke up this morning I decided to do a HIIT workout in the gym we have at my apartment complex. When I do a HIIT workout, I try to get through it as fast as I can with short periods of rest, this way it is a cardio workout and a strength workout. I will just give a short overview of what I did and how everything went.  

Friday Morning HIIT Workout:

 

Round 1:

  • Jump Squats x 25
  • Push-ups x 15
  • Lunges x 10 each leg
  • Flutter Kicks x 50 each leg

Jump Rope x 1 Minute

 

Round 2:

  • Split Squat Jumps x 25 (lunge position, jump, and switch legs)
  • Kettle Bell Front Raise x 20 (hold a Kettle Bell with both hands, arms straight, raise to eye level, and slowly drop back down.)
  • Lateral Lunge x 10 each leg
  • Leg Lifts x 30

Jump Rope x 1 minute

 

Round 3:

  • Wide Stance Air Squats x 25 (feet should be much wider than shoulder width apart)
  • Kettle Bell Overhead Press x 20 (holding Kettle Bell with both hands, press it up over your head, and then bring it back down slowly)
  • Wide Push-ups x 15 (hands outside of shoulders, “wide”)
  • Full Body Crunch x 30

Jump Rope x 1 minute

 


For this circuit, I repeat each round 3 times for my best results. I am usually saturated in sweat and breathing extremely heavy, but it feels great once you are finished! I love HIIT training because these workouts are fast pace and do not require a lot of equipment or space. Keep in mind that my repetition ranges might be different than yours if you try to do a HIIT workout, or maybe you will not be able to do 3 rounds of 3. As long as I am moving and sweating then it is a good workout to me!
