HIIT Workouts To Try

Coming from an avid gym goer, I know how difficult it can be to make it to the gym when the cold weather hits. However, getting to the gym or simply doing workouts at home can boost your mood! Whether you’re new to the world of fitness or simply wanting more ways to exercise, I've included some workouts for you to try anywhere.

I’ve created a few HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts that I personally use a few times a week for you to use either at the rec or at home! For HIIT exercises, they’re usually 20-30 seconds of maximum effort followed by 15-20 seconds of recovery. I use a timer app called Intervals to complete my workouts.

If you're unsure of how to perform any of the exercises below, Spotebi is a great website that demonstrates each move, check it out here

Perform each set 3 times – 30 seconds work – 20 seconds rest – 1 minute rest between completed set

If you’re looking at the above workout thinking there’s no way in hell that’s happening, girl, I feel you.
