      Sometimes you just don’t have time to spend an hour at the gym. That is where these 5 effective HIIT home workouts come in handy!

      These workouts will make you super sweaty and get your heart rate up.

      Also, they will work your whole body, so you get a mix of cardio and resistance training.

      Along with this, they are not boring like other forms of cardio such as running, swimming, and biking.

      HIIT workouts can help raise your metabolism after exercise, therefore you are burning calories both during the workout and afterwards.

      Before we get into the HIIT workouts, let’s talk about what HIIT is and why it’s important. 

      What is HIIT?

      HIIT stands for high intensity interval training. 

      High intensity refers to the fact that the workout will bring up your heart rate more than moderate intensity exercise such as walking.

      Intervals refer to the fact that you will be doing an exercise for a certain amount of time, resting for an amount of time, and then exercising again.

      You will transition from high intensity movement to rest to high intensity movement to rest.

      The way I like to structure my HIIT workouts is to gather 5-6 exercises and create a circuit.

      The workout may look something like this:

      Exercise 1: 30 seconds

      30 seconds rest

      Exercise 2: 30 seconds

      30 seconds rest

      Exercise 3: 30 seconds

      30 seconds rest

      Exercise 4: 30 seconds

      30 seconds rest

      Exercise 5: 30 seconds

      30 seconds rest

      (Repeat 3 times)

      This structure is easy is follow and will really give you a nice and sweaty workout!

      Now that we know what HIIT is, we can jump into the workouts!

      HIIT Workout #1 

      This workout is an absolute killer! Plus, it can be completed in a small space, such as a corner of a room or an apartment balcony.

      It should take about 15 minutes to complete this one.

      • Exercise 2: V-ups
      • Exercise 3: Squat to tippy toes
      • Exercise 4: Shoulder tap to push up

      Perform each exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, then move on to the next exercise.

      How do I create my own HIIT workout?

      That’s a great question. It’s actually quite simple!

      Simply think of 4-6 exercises that work each body part.

      Typically I choose 2-3 lower body exercises, and 2-3 upper body exercises. 

      Then I think of how long I need to perform the exercise to get a good sweat. For me, that’s about 30-40 seconds.

      I then add rest time to add up to a minute. For example, if you do exercise for 30 seconds, add 30 seconds rest. If you do exercise for 40 seconds, add 20 seconds rest.

      Then simply repeat this circuit until it reaches about 15-20 minutes.

      And that is it!

      Use these sample workouts to begin with, and then start experimenting with your own exercises and styles.

      If you have a hard time thinking of exercises, check out this website.

      In the end, HIIT is a great way to boost your heart rate and get in a sweaty workout in a short amount of time.
