Hump Day HIIT | Lower Body Burn

0

Every Wednesday I’ll be posting a new HIIT workout to help keep your routine fresh and motivating.

HIIT means High Intensity Interval Training and this workout is definitely intense. I’ve put together a squat routine featuring four squat variations to get those legs burning and the heart rate up.

It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be intense so give it your all and really push through each move!

If you’re a beginner and are looking for something a little less challenging check out my New Year, New Me series designed to help you get started on your fitness journey.

The HIIT Workout

Complete each exercise for 30 seconds taking a 15 second break between each move

Squat Pulse

Start in a standing position with your feet hip width apart. Lower yourself into a squat position making sure to keep your back straight and your knees behind your toes. Pulse up and down.

Squat Jump

Start in a standing position with your feet slightly wider than hip width apart. Lower yourself into a squat position keeping your weight in your heels and your bum pressed back. Push through your heels jumping upwards and land softly back into a squat position.

Squat Taps

Start standing with your feet together. Lower yourself into a narrow squat so that your feet and knees remain together. Alternating between each leg, extend your leg straight out to the side and tap your toes on the ground as far from you as possible without moving. Make sure to keep your leg straight.

Squat Hold

Start in a standing position with your feet slightly wider than hip width apart and lower yourself into a squat position. Hold this position for the full 30 seconds making sure to keep your back straight and your knees behind your toes.

You want to complete this whole circuit four times. Take a short break between each circuit but try not to cool down too much. Remember, the goal of a HIIT workout is to push you to the limit.

Let me know what you thought of this workout and if you felt the burn? I know I certainly did when I was testing this one out!
