HIIT it to get fit!
You can Get Fit with the Lean Body HIIT Workout Challenge in as little as 15 minutes! The American Heart Association recommends getting in at least 75 minutes of HIIT exercise per week. That’s JUST five, 15-minute sessions! You can totally do that. Perform this workout 5 times per week to “HIIT” your weekly goal!
Exercise doesn’t have to be complicated nor take up a ton of your time! This is why HIIT is so popular. So many of us have such busy schedules that sometimes it can be hard to find time for a workout. HIIT is effective and efficient! Get it done and get on with your day!
HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training. While this may sound a little overwhelming to some, HIIT exercise is actually completely modifiable to any fitness level. This means that whether you’re at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level, it can work for you! Anyone is capable of 15 minutes of fat-burning, body-sculpting exercise.
The Lean Body HIIT Workout Challenge
What you need: A jump rope, a bench/chair/or step, a timer, and a towel or yoga mat.
What to do: I’m going to give you two versions of this workout. The exercises involved in each are very similar, while version 2 is a little bit more challenging. You can choose which you’d like to perform. Both versions include 5 exercises. You will complete 3 rounds.
Depending on your current level, you’ll perform each exercise for the specified amount of time and then rest. Give each period of exercise your maximum effort and try to stay on track with the rest periods. This will allow you to keep the workout to 15 minutes!
