10-Minute HIIT Circuit Workout

HIIT plus circuit equals major results.

Circuit workouts are a classic for a reason. As you move through the circuit, you work out each and every part of your body. This type of balanced workout allows you to build muscle strength in all areas, which not only makes for a more toned and fit body, but allows each of your muscle systems to support the others.

And adding a HIIT workout to your circuit workout conjures up a double dose of fat burning and strength building. HIIT allows you to achieve maximum results in a short amount of time, while keeping your metabolism working at capacity for long after you’ve finished your workout. This combo is designed for results.

Equipment Needed: interval timer (Gymboss is a free app), set of light-medium dumbbells (5-10 lbs.)

What to Do: Perform each exercise for 30 seconds with no rest in between. Rest 30 seconds after each circuit and 1 minute after circuit 3. Perform this total body routine 3 -4 times per week for a total body makeover.
