Advanced HIIT

 

Quite a few of you have asked for a little more challenging HIIT workout.

We have devoted a whole chapter in our forthcoming book, Mind Body Miracle about the benefits of HIIT Training.

Below is a little teaser of a few lines from the book. 

It is a great source of exercise for pretty much anyone, anywhere. The parent that is at home most of the day, the business person living out of hotels or the one who wants to train whilst on holiday.

Typically involving  short bursts of very intensive exercise followed by short recovery phases. i.e (40 seconds of hard work and 20 seconds of rest). This type of workout is extremely effective for fat burning and fat loss, especially if you add further resistance training in the form of weights. 

Give this video a go. Inintially begin with 30 seconds of work and 30 seconds of recovery and build to 45 seconds of work and 15 seconds recovery.

Complete 5 rounds in total. Each exercise has a regression if the one in the video is too challenging.

In replacement of high knees, walking high knees

Press ups or press up on knees instead of the clapping variety

Lose the jumping squats for squats

plyo lunges are difficult, try standard lunges

Press up on knees and raise one knee at a time, compared to jumping press up into tuck.

Let us know how you go.
