HiiT Lower Body Workout Guide at Home

We want to ensure everyone is still able to stay fit, active and continue working towards their fitness goals.

To re-assure you, we’ll continue to provide everyone with free access even past the initial 90 days should we need to extend our home fitness option to the UK public while we all battle the Coronavirus pandemic. Stay well, fit and healthy and follow our at home workouts for free.

What Is a HiiT Lower Body 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. Rest periods are short and exercise periods are longer; that’s the magic of HiiT workouts. At Xercise4Less Gyms, we are proud to be inclusive and fun. That’s exactly why this workout guide is accessible to everyone regardless of age, gender and ability. Simply repeat 3 exercises 4 times and give your maximum energy throughout to help with weight loss and burning calories.

What You Need For a HiiT Lower Body Workout

Besides yourself, there is nothing else you need. This is workout requires no equipment at all as it’s a mixture of 3 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 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 start working on that lower body. 

Exercise 1: Lunges

For the first exercise, you’ll be working on your quads with some simple lunges. Start with your feet shoulder width apart and step your left leg out in front and lower yourself to the ground. Return upright and then switch over to your right leg. Keep alternating your legs until you complete all of the reps required. It’s important to keep your back straight to avoid injury. Try to engage your core with every lunge you do. 

Complete 20 reps and move onto the next exercise without rest.

Exercise 2: Squats

Next, move onto some squats which are another great quad-focused exercise. Stand with your legs shoulder width apart and simply sit down into a squat, hold for a second and then stand upright. Try to get as low to the ground as you can for the best possible results – this will also target your glutes a bit better. Remember to keep your back straight and not hunch over. To raise your heart rate and burn calories quicker, aim to complete your reps as quick as you can. 

Complete 20 reps and move onto the next exercise without rest.

Exercise 3: Floor Tap Jumping Lunges 

Let’s get that heart rate up with our final exercise in this HiiT workout routine. Just like you did before, lower yourself into a lunge with your left leg forwardonly this time bring your arms down to tap the floor. Next, swing your arms up to help you jump in the air. As you jump, switch over to your right leg and touch the floor again.  

Complete 20 reps and move onto the next exercise without rest.  

Once you’ve completed all 3 exercises, rest for 30 seconds and repeat all exercises again. Once you’ve completed this HiiT Lower Body Workout, you should have repeated these exercise 4 times in total.

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.
