Hi lovelies,

This is a full body HIIT workout that won’t cause you to bulk up. But it will still help you to burn lots of calories (both during AND after). :)

HOW TO COMPLETE THE CIRCUIT

Complete each exercise for 40 seconds, and then rest for 20 seconds. Once you have completed 1 round, you can either rest for 1 minute, or go straight into round 2. Aim to complete 3 rounds in total.

If it is too difficult, you can just do 2 rounds and then work your way up to 3 rounds.

FULL BODY HIIT WORKOUT BENEFITS

HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training. You typically do an intense type of exercise for a short period, and then rest. It can seem extreme but it is also very beneficial.

BURNS LOST OF CALORIES IN A SHORT WORKOUT

HIIT workouts usually lasts from 10 to 30 minutes, but can give you the same results as a twice as long moderate-intensity workout. For example, if I run for 40 minutes and you do a HIIT workout for 20 minutes, you and I will burn the same number of calories.

So you can save some time and still get great results.

BURNS CALORIES EVEN AFTER THE WORKOUT

With HIIT, you will still continue to burn calories after your workout.

Studies have shown that HIIT increases your metabolism and keeps it that way even hours after you’re done exercising.

Apparently, just two minutes of sprinting can increase your metabolism over 24 hours as much as 30 minutes of running.

HIIT WORKOUT WITHOUT BULKING

HIIT exercises do build muscle, which is a good thing as it helps your metabolism. But doing too much HIIT or the wrong type of HIIT exercises can cause you to gain unwanted bulky muscle.

If you’re a mesomorph or endomorph body type and you’re overdoing it on the leg exercises (squat jumps, burpees, jump lunges, etc), you might see your legs starting to get bulky, rather than slimmer.
