The benefits of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) cannot be understated. HIIT workouts are the most effective way to exercise while saving time. In addition, HIIT workouts have many other amazing benefits.

A HIIT workout basically involves you performing a certain type of exercise or exercises for a short period of time, followed by a period of rest. Most HIIT workouts last no more than 20 minutes, and can be as brief as 4 minutes! This is in contrast to moderate intensity training, which involves exercising at the same pace for 30-45 minutes. And you don’t have to be an athlete or fitness pro to perform HIIT workouts. It’s all about giving your best effort during your exercise times. 

Today’s workout focuses on exercising your lower legs with squats and lunges.

To perform the HIIT workout:

  1. Warm up for 3-5 minutes
  2. Perform the exercise for 20 seconds, as FAST AND HARD AS YOU CAN.
  3. Rest for 40 seconds.
  4. Repeat for 20 sets, for a full 20-minute lower body workout.

Let’s get to it!

Perform each exercise as instructed with 100% intensity for 20 seconds, and then rest for 40 seconds.
