Top At Home Cardio HIIT Workouts

Trainers everywhere love HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts simply because they are fast and effective, can be modified to any level of expertise, and get your heart rate up -  allowing you to burn more calories even after the workout is complete. The real key in completing HIIT workouts (which many people forget to execute) is to move as fast as is challenging for you within the given timeframe. Leave each exercise breathless and that’s when you know you are doing it right. Here are some options for time intervals depending on level of intensity. 

Complete 3-5 Rounds:

Option 1: 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest (usually completed when given a short window to workout, but intensity needs to be pushed for as many rounds as you can)

Option 2: 30 seconds of work, 30 seconds of rest

Option 3: 40 seconds of work, 20 seconds of rest
