I had a few requests lately for some at home HIIT workouts.  That’s what this post and episode of CCtvis all about.  In it I’ll teach you what HIIT is, how you can do it at home (and the gym) then I’ll give you a HIIT workout you can do at home.

What is HIIT?

HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you go all-out, giving one hundred percent effort via intense bursts of physical exertion, followed by less intense recovery periods.  Training this way will get (and keep) your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.

Why should you HIIT?

During the high interval you’ll be engaging muscles and provoking EPOC (post exercise oxygen consumption).  EPOC means, you’ll continue to burn burn calories AFTER the workout stops.  HIIT training continues to burn calories even after your workout stops as opposed to steady state jogging.  This way you can get more calorie burn bang for your time-spent buck. (Yay!)  HIIT is an effective training strategy if you’re busy and don’t have a lot of time to workout.

See me explain how you can do a HIIT workout in the gym and at home in the video below.  After you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear what you think.  Please let me a comment to let me know. xo

HOW TO HIIT?

Repeat each exercise in the above workout for 20-30 seconds each (depending on your current activity level) to complete one set. Do 5 full sets to complete your workout. All in all it should take you about 20 minutes and TRUST me. You’ll feel the burn fast. I’d recommend doing this workout 1 to 2 times a week. I hope you like it!
