Tis’ Christmas! It’s a global procrastination month where the last thing on anyone’s mind is an exercise session.
But what if there was a way to get a quick sweat on without the need to go to the gym?
High-intensity interval training, popularly known as HIIT, involves fluctuating between bouts of all- out intensity, followed by short periods of rest.
The key to an effective HIIT workout at home is by using a variety of exercises. You can quickly put together HIIT workouts at home that require minimal equipment, only your motivation and grit.
1) The deadly Plank
The workout is simple:
Hold the plank for 6 minutes.
Here is the catch though, every time you drop from the plank, perform 10 burpees!
So the more breaks you take, the more burpees you do ;)
2) The Pyramid Scheme
50- 40- 30- 20- 10 (reps, each of:)
Shoulder taps in plank position
So do 50 reps of each of the variations, then 40, then 30, then 20, then 10. Aim to finish the entire workout in no more than 25 minutes, taking a rest when you want.
3) Death by burpees
Oh trust me when I use the word ‘death’ ;)
So this is an EMOM (every minute on minute) type of workout.
The first minute, you do one burpee. Take the rest of the minute to relax.
The second minute is two burpees.
The third minute is three buprees.
And so on… aim to reach uptown 25 minutes, adding one extra burpee per minute. The faster you finish the burpees, the more time you get to rest.
Trust me, you will be panting for your breath by the end of the 11th minute.
