This is a HIIT workout that won’t cause bulkiness in your lower body. HIIT workouts are amazing but if you’re doing too many leg focused exercises, they may cause unwanted bulkiness.
I took my HIIT workout outside today and filmed it for you guys but you can do it at home. I’m in Batumi (Georgia) and as you can see, it’s beautiful so I just couldn’t resist!
You don’t need any equipment for this one but you can use a yoga mat for more comfort.

HOW TO COMPLETE THE WORKOUT
- Complete each exercise for 40 seconds and then have a 20 second rest.
- I use the free app IntervalTimer which makes it really easy as it just beeps when you need to start or stop.
- Aim for 3 rounds.
- If you’re feeling really fit, you can do 4 or 5.
Good luck! xx
HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training. This means that you do an intense type of exercise for a short period and then rest.
This type of training is quick (10-30 minutes) and super effective. If you do 20 minute HIIT workout, you will burn the same number of calories as if you were running for 40 minutes.
As I mentioned already, some types of HIIT can cause your thighs to get bigger, especially if you are an endomorph body type, but as with all of my workouts, this one shouldn’t cause any bulkiness.
It will just help you burn lots of calories and tone up :)
