A 20-minute high-intensity interval workout routine you can do at home with NO EQUIPMENT! It’ll get you sweaty, it’ll get you puffed out AND, it’ll get you fit and healthy! Throwing in a 20-minute workout for 3 times a week is going to seriously improve your fitness, as long as you are working hard! You need to give it 110%, no half-hearted exercise, pick the exercises you don’t like and you will soon find that they are easier than you think! If you are a newbie to all this and just want some guidance then don’t you worry, I have you sorted! I’ve kept the movements pretty basic as they are fundamental movements you do every single day without you even realizing. You can switch it up to different variations when you are ready and feel you want something a little more challenging, but for now, start with this and see how you get on!
You’re going to perform each exercise for 40 seconds then rest for 20 seconds. Once you have completed all the exercises rest for 1 minute and repeat for 3 times in total.
These 5 movements, as I mentioned, can all be made easier or harder depending on your current fitness level. You can include weight or just make the movement into a plyometric movement, a jump movement. So a squat would turn into a jumping squat, lunges could be jumping lunges etc. If you actually find you want to decrease the intensity of an exercise, for example, the burpee, step out instead of jump and stand instead of jumping up. You do whatever suits you, just make sure that you are still challenging your body.
HIIT is going to burn fat much quicker than going for a run. It increases the heart rate over short periods of time, even burning calories when you are at rest. Not only will you feel fitter, you will see the changes in your body too! If you want some more health and fitness tips, come and say hi over on my other social media platforms:
