Stay well, fit and healthy and follow our at home workouts for free.

What Is a HiiT Workout?

HiiT stands for high intensity interval training. What you can expect from a HiiT workout is a lot of high-energy and high-impact movements that will help to raise your heart rate and ultimately help with weight loss too. HiiT workouts tend to involve jumping movements that require your full energy for a period of time following by a period of rest. This HiiT Workout Guide is a quick 17-minute workout that you can do in the house or in the gym – simply repeat each exercise for a certain number of reps with just 30 seconds rest and then move onto the next exercise. You should repeat this whole routine twice. Whilst it’s short, it’ll help you burn body fat and excess calories fast! Try to stick to the timings where you can but increase the rest time if you need to. Burn calories and improve your strength and stamina in a HiiT Workout.

What You Need For a HiiT Workout

Besides yourself, nothing. This workout requires no equipment at all as it’s a mixture of bodyweight exercises that you can perform no matter your ability, age or gender. Create a big enough space in your house to complete the workout comfortably, so allow enough room for your workout whether you’re in the living room, garden or back in our gyms once we re-open. Now, grab your gym kit and a comfortable pair of trainers and let’s go!  

Exercise 1: Press Ups

Start off this hiit workout with a key upper body movement. To perform a press up safely, you have two options. The first option is to lie flat on your stomach with your hands in front of your chest but close to your body. Push your body up so that it’s off the floor and you’re resting on your tip toes. Hold this for a second and then lower your body without touching the floor. That is one rep. The slightly simpler version of this is to rest your body weight on your knees instead of your toes but still perform the press up the same way.  

Complete 20 reps followed by 30 seconds rest and then move onto the next exercise.

Exercise 2: Sprints

This is a very simple but high energy move that is great for working your fitness and stamina. To complete this movement, sprint on the spot for one minute. Make sure that you boost this movement as much as you can by pumping your arms by your sides – this will increase your heart rate and allow you to burn more calories and body fat.  

Complete a 30 second sprint following by a 30 second rest and then move onto the next exercise.

Exercise 3: Sit Ups

A sit up is a firm ab workout favourite as it helps to strengthen your core and define your abdominal muscles. To perform a sit up, lay down with your knees raised and feet flat. Next, simply sit all the way up so that you’re touching your knees. Lay back down and then repeat. 

Complete 20 reps followed by 30 seconds rest and then move onto the next exercise.

Exercise 4: Sprints

Now onto your second round of sprints. Give this your full energy for the whole 30 seconds as this is what will help to increase your heart rate and burn calories faster.  

Complete for 30 secondfollowing by a 30 second rest and then move onto the next exercise.

Exercise 5: Back Raises

For this exercise, lay flat on the floor with your hands flat on the floor in front of you. Simply raise your head up from the floor until you feel it working your back. Lay your head back down and repeat this movement until you’ve completed all of the reps. 

Complete 20 reps followed by 30 seconds rest and then move onto the next exercise.  

When you repeat the circuit, change your back raise slightly so that you lift your arms up off the floor as you raise your back too. This will increase the intensity of this exercise and really pull on your back muscles forcing them to become stronger.

Home Workout Safety Information

Before following the workout, make sure that you have enough space to perform movements freely to prevent any injury. If you need a piece of furniture to perform an exercise, make sure that it can stand your weight and that the movement feels comfortable. If you’re struggling, please switch the exercise for something that feels more natural. There isn’t much different in terms of safety when it comes to home workout vs gym workouts; just practice correct form to stay safe and prevent injury.
