Bringin’ you some major fitness vibes last week with a kettlebell workout, this week we’re workin’ on our rep game.
HIIT exercises are designed to target your arms, core, and legs (yes, we’re afraid leg-day is still a thing – even in lockdown). It’s a real full-body deal!
If you’re seeing a lot of chat about staying strong at home and focusing on your health and well-being but you aren’t really sure where to start, peep JD’s home HIIT workout routines over on @jdsports IGTV for some inspo on where to get started right from your living room.
Ever wondered what HIIT is but never wanna’ ask? Here’s your answer: it stands for high intensity interval training.
It has many different forms, but essentially involves a period of working hard (and we mean hard), followed by a period of much lower intensity – or complete rest. This is then repeated for a number of reps or for a duration of time.
Classic functional body weight moves like burpees, squat jumps and press ups feature heavily in HIIT routines as the benefits stack up. From increased fat burn to improved stamina in longer workouts to better sleep, get HIIT right and you’ll be upping your fitness game and feelin’ fresh in no time.
