Two days ago I discussed why high intensity interval training (HIIT) is great and how it can help with fat loss.
This is a HIIT weights based workout, which is sure to burn lots of calories in a short period of time. It is great to do these types of workouts when you are time poor.
I recommend doing a HIIT workout at least once per week, depending on your body type! If you are an endomorph or mesomorph body type and you don’t want to build too much muscle, it might be better if you avoided doing HIIT with weights.
If you are unsure of your body type, you can take my free Body Type Quiz. This will help you learn how to exercise and eat according to your body type to get the best possible results :)
- Medicine ball slams (10kg medicine ball)
- Squat press (10kg plate or you could use the medicine ball)
- Kettlebell swings (10kg)
- Lunge row (using cable machine)
- Box jumps
Complete 30 seconds of each exercise one after the after, with no or little rest between. After you have completed one round, rest for 2 minutes. Repeat this a total of 5 times.
It will only take you 25 minutes, but is an absolute killer! Don’t forget to warm up and cool down also. I usually do a power walk for 5 minutes to warm up and cool down.
Note: If you don’t have a cable machine for the lunge row, you could use the kettlebell instead.
