We are going to start with Indoor HIIT workout. First warm up for the work out. Make sure you stretch really well. You don’t want to be pulling any muscles.

For this one you will do five cycles of the work out. You are going to do each exercise back-to-back no rest in between them. You rest when the cycle is over. Don’t worry I will write out the whole thing to follow.

10 Jump lunges (Each leg) 20 total for those like me count each time.

10 push-ups. It’s okay to do wall push ups or on your knees. You can even use a chair. So many different ways to do it if you aren’t able to yet done a push up.

20 Squats

15 Chair dips

15 mountain climbers (each leg) 30 total again if you count the way I do.

Now you take a one-minute rest. Get a drink of water and get ready for the next set. We are going to repeat these four more times.

Let’s get ready and do the second cycle.

10 push-ups.

One-minute rest again. Don’t feel bad if you are breathing heavy and feel like you can’t keep going. Trust me I was there my first time doing this work out. It gets easier as you go. Let get back to it three more cycles left to go.

Rest for one minute. Make sure you are drinking water during your rest. If this isn’t hard enough kick it up a notch. You should really be working up a sweat doing this. At this point during the first time, I did this. I was thinking to myself what in the world am I doing to myself. Two more cycles to go we can do this together.

Final rest period. Way to go. You did your very first HIIT workout. You are supposed to be out of breath and sweating. That’s what working out it.

My next workout I am going to share is Anywhere HIIT

This warm up do a one-minute jog. Again, we are going to do five cycles.

30 seconds sprints

8 burpees

8 high knees (each leg) 16 total if you count like I do.

45 second rest. That is a workout right there. Don’t feel bad if you are having trouble with the burpees. I did too at first. I was just starting to get better when I dislocated my knee cap so now, I am going to have to start all over. Let go four more cycles left to do.

30 seconds sprints

8 burpees

8 high knees (each leg)

45 second rest. Get yourself some water. Right now, water is your best friend. You need to stay hydrated. Three more cycles left to do.

30 seconds sprints

8 burpees

8 high knees (each leg)

45 second rest. I don’t know about you guys but sprinting 30 seconds over again had me breathless. especially with asthma. Lucky for me my asthma is very well controlled and I don’t have many problems with it. I always have it on hand. If you have the same problem make sure you have yours close by. Two more cycles left.

30 seconds sprints

8 burpees

8 high knees (each leg)

45 second rest. Let hurry up and get the last one over with. Make sure you get a drink of water. I know I say that a lot but. I take two to three sips per rest period. Don’t down it because then you’ll make yourself sick. Trust me been there and done that.

30 seconds sprints

8 burpees

8 high knees (each leg)

45 second rest. Congratulate yourself. You finished the second work out on here. I know you probably aren’t doing the work out as I am typing or as your reading. But I am hoping that you do come back to this and really do it. That’s why I am adding stuff to help motivate you into doing it. The first month of working out in my option is the hardest.

Work out number three

This workout is one that doesn’t really have a name but it is also a HIIT workout. It’s something I started doing. I didn’t look it up anywhere. All 100% original. As you start doing your own workouts you can make up your own along the way to fit your life style. This one is only four cycles because there are more workouts than before.

This is a beginner level. Remember how I said if you can’t do regular push ups then to do wall push-ups. I atomically changed that this time around.

Make sure you stretch. We don’t want any injuries on our hands.

25 wall push ups

10 high knees (each leg)

10 Bridge marches (each leg)

10 single leg step ups (each leg) use a step stool. We have one for my four-year-old and that’s what I use. Or the bottom stair of your house or apartment.

15 jumping jacks

8 chair dips

One-minute rest. Yay the best part. If you do any other push ups other than wall cut the number down. Three cycles left to go.

25 wall push ups

10 high knees (each leg)

10 Bridge marches (each leg)

10 single leg step ups (each leg)

15 jumping jacks

8 chair dips

One-minute rest. Half way done. Get some water. If you aren’t working up a sweat then you need to push yourself harder. Two more cycles to go and then we are done.
