At Home HIIT Workout

It was pouring all day today and I had no motivation to drive to the gym through the crazy wind and rain. So I came up with a quick 30 minute HIIT workout to do at home. On days where I don’t feel like leaving the house, I put together quick routines like this to stay active! I hope my exercise explanations make sense! 

Complete the exercises for 10 reps each, nonstop for 7 minutes. Complete the circuit 4 times with a 1 minute rest in between each set.

Walk down + Superman
Standing straight, bend down and use your hands to walk out until you’re in a push-up stance. Use your arms to come down so you’re lying on the ground, as a half push-up. Put your arms straight forward. While looking straight, lift your arms and legs off the group so only your hips and stomach are touching the ground. Push-up to get off the ground and walk backwards with your hands until you’re standing straight again.

Push Up + Roll
Perform a regular push up. When up, take your right arm and extend it up in the air as you turn body towards the right. For balance, bring your right foot behind your left foot. Bring your right arm back to the ground and complete a push up. Complete the same exercise for the left side.

Front Squat + Side Lift
Perform a front squat. Stand back up and lift your right leg up to the side. Perform another squat and lift your left leg up to the side.

Plank Jacks + Mountain Climbers 
Start off in a plank position. Open and close both legs in a jumping motion two times. Once your legs are together, rotate your legs coming towards your chest and back out in a running motion 3 times total.

HIIT Cardio Workout: Treadmill & Stairmaster

This is the first time I’ve done HIIT on the stair master and thought I’d post my workout for all of you to try! It’s the same structure as the HIIT workouts I do on the treadmill. Enjoy but be ready to sweat a waterfall!

Warm Up:
Swing your legs around (Not joking!)

Treadmill:
Incline / Speed / Minutes
15 / 3.0 / 2
15 / 5.0 / 1

10 / 5.4 / 1
8 / 3.0 / 2

Stair Master:
For the stair master I alternated between level 5 and 10 for 2 minutes and then 1 minute. I’ll write it down below to visualize.
Level/Speed // Minutes
