This is full body HIIT workout for women that won’t cause bulk, and it will still get you lean and toned, and burning lots of calories!
I posted one of these workouts the other day (read here) and lots of you were interested in it. So here is another one :)
HIIT workouts are great, they are quick and super effective. They speed up your metabolism and help you burn those extra calories even after your workout.
But I know that some women can get bulky in their lower body if they do too much HIIT. That’s why I always create HIIT circuits that won’t cause your legs to bulk up.
WATCH THE FULL BODY HIIT WORKOUT VIDEO
HOW TO COMPLETE THE CIRCUIT
- Complete each exercise for 30 seconds, without rest.
- Once you have completed the full circuit, rest for 2 minutes.
- Complete 4-5 rounds in total.
1. BROAD JUMP + 4 HIGH KNEE RUNS
2. SHOULDER TAP PUSH UPS (on toes – use incline to make it easier)
3. BUTTERFLY CRUNCHES
4. HIGH KNEE RUNS WITH STEP
5. TRICEP DIPS
Good luck! Let me know if you try it!
If you liked this HIIT workout and one of your fitness goals is to get lean and toned without getting bulky, I think you would really like my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program!
It includes a complete workout and nutrition plan and there are three different versions of the program, one for each body type, so you guys can be sure you’re going to get the best possible results :)
Love Rachael Xx
Hi, I’d like to ask that how many times a week should I do HIIT?
If you’re an ectomorph or mesomorph you could do it once or twice a week. If you’re the endomorph type, I wouldn’t recommend doing HIIT, you could do a run or circuit instead! :) xx
I was totally skeptical that this workout was going to get my heart rate up high enough. I don’t think I’ve met a trainer who doesn’t think that burpees are the be-all, end-all of HIIT. Glad I tried this! I was gassed after each circuit!
Hi Deanna, I’m happy to hear that ;) It’s harder than it looks! xx
Hi there! I can’t wait to try this out! Do you have any recommended warm ups and cool downs for HIIT?
Hi lovely! I haven’t actually posted any warm ups and cool downs but that is a great idea :) I will write a blog post on that for you xxx
Hi, I have been doing these workouts for the past couple of months and my body is flawless because og you Rachael.
Thank You. xx
Oh wow, that is amazing hun! Congratulations to you :) Very happy to be able to help! xxx
Hi rachael ! Does dance Zumba cause bulk?
Hi Carolina, no I don’t think it would cause bulk xx
I had recently began your other hiit workout that won’t cause bulk and came across this(:
Would it be more effective to do both workouts or just one (please specify which one)?
I would also like to know how many times a week to do each exercise(:
Hi, I was looking at purchasing your skinny legs and flat stomach ebooks. Could I do both of the ebooks at the same time? Or would I need to do one first for 8 weeks then follow with the other?
Hi lovely, I already replied to your email :) xx
Thank you for this new HIIT workout (minus the bulky legs) Rachael ! :D
I think all the exercices of Jumping Jacks, Front Jacks etc… are safe for not having big quads, but what do you think ?
Hi Kisa, yes I think these style of exercises are fine and shouldn’t bulk up your quads. So feel free to add in these type of exercises! xx
