Bodyweight workouts can be extremely effective if you take them seriously. Push and you'll feel it, I promise. Additionally, HIIT workouts raise intensity levels to a point that could leave you dripping with sweat. Best part? Your bodyweight and the HIIT concept fuse together in a way that's highly adaptable.
Test my theory with the following do anywhere HIIT workout.
INSTRUCTIONS: This do anywhere HIIT workout has three small circuits. Do each circuit three times, and do each exercise for (:30). Rest for (:15) in between each exercise, and take a minute or two between each circuit. Of course, you'll need to warm up before you begin. Light running or walking should be fine, or use the cardio machine of your choice. Have water ready, you'll need it! The entire workout should take you 45 minutes at the most. Less if you're really pushing it.
Squat, then come up and clap underneath your right knee. Repeat, left leg. Continue alternating, moving as quickly as you can.
Skip the pushup and jump, focusing instead on speed and consistency.
Start in high plank and make your way down to elbow plank and back again, alternating your starting arm each time. Try not to let the hips rotate!
Put some force into this one! Squat, come up into a punch over your knee, squat again, then hop your feet together. Repeat on the other side.
As you come up out of your pushup, bring your left leg forward into a low lunge, then step up and together, reverse and repeat on the right side.
Lift up, pull back, lower down and repeat! If this move is too intense for your lower back, remove the lat pull.
