Quick & Sweaty HIIT Workout for Beginners

Quick HIIT Workout

HAPPY MONDAY! πŸ™‚

Ready to kick Monday in the butt??!

Glad you came here because that is exactly what we are going to do today.

Let’s get your week started on a strong note with one of my favorite workouts that you can do anywhere and is super effective!

Today we are doing a HIIT workout which is the quickest and easiest way to get an effective workout in within the shortest amount of time.

What is HIIT? It stands for High-Intensity-Interval-Training. What does that mean? It’s an exercise that incorporates alternating short periods of anaerobic exercise with a short break. This spikes up your metabolism and allows you to reap the benefits through out the day!

I like doing these as they are usually no longer thanΒ  15-20 minutes. So, if you are crunched for time or seem to keep making excuses of why you can’t workout then this workout is for you!

I do this routine whenever I want a good sweaty session while working out my whole body. You can do this at home, at your gym, in a hotel room….basically anywhere!

I invite you to join me in doing the below exercise today πŸ™‚ You know your body best, so if anything doesn’t feel right for you, then please don’t do it. Take breaks as you need to.

The following exercises will be done in 30 seconds intervals with a 20 second break. Of course, take water breaks whenever you feel the need to. This is pretty quick, perfect for any levels and can be incorporated into your daily morning routine before work or school πŸ™‚

At any moment, if you need to stop, please listen to your body and do what’s best for you.

Let’s get started:

Start with jumping jacks for one minute

  • take a 20 second break

High knees for 30 seconds

  • take a 20 sec break

If you have weights grab those or anything that is heavy and squat for 30 seconds

  • take a 20 sec break

Lunge with right foot forward (and your weights) for 30 seconds

  • take a 20 second break

Lunge with left foot forward with weights for 30 seconds

  • take a 20 sec break

Mountain climbers for 30 seconds

  • take a 20 sec break

jump burpees for 30 seconds

  • take a 20 sec break

Get into a long plank position and tap each shoulder then bring your right leg towards your left arm then left leg towards right leg. Repeat for 30 seconds.

  • 20 second break

Back to your jumping burpees!

  • 20 second break

Do a squat hold for 30 seconds. Exactly what it sounds like — stay in a squat position! Then immediately after do a squat pulse for 30 seconds — smooth & short up and down movement

  • 20 second break

Jump squats for your last 30 seconds!

That’s it!! You did it πŸ™‚ Now you can conquer your day and take on whatever comes your way!

Don’t forget to stretch and drink lots of water. You will notice you will be more hungry than normal, which is due to the fact that after this exercise your body is still burning calories hours after!

Hope you kick butt and can’t wait to share more of these with you guys for inspiration to be your strongest, most confident, most loving self!

Happy Motivational Monday.

Until next time,

Ozzy

Fall in love with your life and your body.
