A lot of women find that their legs tend to get overly muscular when they do too much HIIT (myself included). But since HIIT is such a great way to increase your metabolism and tone up all over,I want to be able to do it but without bulking up. And I’m sure many of you agree :)
This is a full body HIIT workout that will help you burn a lot of calories (even after exercising). And it won’t cause bulkiness in your lower body.
Oh and check out my HIIT ab workout too!

HOW TO COMPLETE THE WORKOUT
- Do 20 reps of each exercise (10 each side) without any rest.
- The only exception is exercise 3 (punching / high knee combo) – I would just do 5 reps of this one.
- After 1 round, rest for 1 minute.
- Complete 3-5 rounds, depending on your fitness level.
1. 3 KNEE RUNS
2. TRICEPS DIPS
Complete 10 reps in this position (pictured), and then 10 reps with your other leg in this position.
3. PLANK STAR JUMPS
4. PUNCHING / HIGH KNEE COMBO
Do 10 punches and 10 high knee runs (5 each side). This is one rep. You then do this 5 times.
5. ALTERNATING ROPE CLIMBS
Good luck! Let me know if you try it! :)
I should also mention my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program for all of you who want to get lean and toned legs without the bulkiness.
My program has a complete 8-week workout and nutrition plan so you can be sure you’re eating right while you’re training :)
Hope you like it!
