Cardio HIIT Workouts

HIIT Workouts Are Great Cardio

Time is one of the biggest client complaints.  Clients want their workouts to be done in a shorter period of time and I couldn’t agree more.  You don’t have to be spending hours in the gym to get results.

This is where a HIIT workout is great.  HIIT stands for High Intense Interval Training.  Now, get freaked out if you are thinking this isn’t for you.  EVERYTHING can be MODIFIED!  As a trainer, I’m big into making these types of workouts work for YOU!

This is a great HIIT workout even though it focuses more on cardio.  You are still getting strength training exercises in this.

Exercises:

Jumping Jacks:
We all know what a jumping jack is.  If you need to modify this, take out the “jumping part” and step side to side quickly.  Still move your arms as if you are doing a jumping jack.

Alternating Reverse Lunges with Front Kick:
Step back with the right leg.  Left leg – make sure your knee is between your toe and ankle.  Lower yourself down to a 90 degree angle.  When you step back up, kick your right foot out in front of you.  Switch legs.  Do 12 reps on each side.  You can add dumbbells in your hands for added resistance.

Skater’s Lunge:
Jump side to side bringing 1 leg behind you as if you are skating.  If you need to modify, take the jump out and step side to side.  Touch the ground with your hands as you skate.

Squats with Side Kicks:
Stand tall.  Feet shoulder width apart.  Lower yourself down as if you are sitting into a chair.  Yes, STICK YOUR BUTT OUT.  As you stand kick right leg out to the side.  Squat again, stand and kick left leg out.  That is 1 rep.  Repeat 12 times.

Plank Shoulder Taps:
Get in high plank position.  Take opposite hand and tap opposite shoulder.  Repeat left and right.  Do 12-15 reps each side.  Keep abs tight throughout this exercise.
