The "HIIT" Workout

Updated: Mar 10, 2020

Here is my new secret to help with losing weight and tone up. After 3 months of doing this type of workout, I'm wearing dresses that I couldn't fit into a year ago. The newest trend in the game of working out, the "HIIT" workout. Honestly, this workout is the best workout I've ever done and wish I would of known about it sooner. If you haven't heard about the hit workout, it's when you are moving nonstop for 15-20 mins with a mixture of cardio and weights. It's not just a shorter workout, but it's said that you're burning calories for up to 40 hours.

My Hit Workout:

Warm Up: I start off on the elliptical to get my body warm. While I'm on the elliptical for 5-10 minutes, I'm focusing on my heart rate and raising it between 130-140.

1st round:

- 3 sets of squats with a weight ball, start with 20 and lower by 5 each round

- Break for 30 seconds

- 3 sets of bur-pees (I try to do these once a week in my workout because I hate bur-pees)

- Break for 30 seconds

- 3 sets of lunges across the gym floor with weight in both hands

- Jumping jacks for 1 minute 3 sets

After each round, I get back on the elliptical for about 3-5 minutes.

2nd round:

- 3 sets of triceps curls on a machine, increasing the weight after each set

- Break for 30 seconds

- 3 sets of back workout on a machine, slightly increasing weight after each set

-Break for 30 seconds

- 3 sets of bicep curls on machine, increasing the weight after each set

Then back to the elliptical for about 3 minutes

3rd round:

- 5 minutes of any abs workout

This schedule is just one of my rotations when I'm doing this workout. I try to change up a couple of the workouts in each round so I'm working out different muscles in my body. Think you can handle the hit workout?
