Spending an hour dragging it out on the treadmill, the elliptical, or a stationary bike sounds like a snoozefest sometimes. Instead, crank up the intensity with a 30-minute HIIT workout.
By performing a mix of different moves, you'll keep your mind busy while challenging your body. Translation: You'll barely realize how hard you're working. Plus, the interval format (45 seconds on, 15 seconds off) makes time fly by. Oh, and did we mention you can do this anywhere? No gym or equipment needed.
Get it in, get it done, and get on with your life.
- Jog or march in place for 30 seconds.
- Standing tall, circle your arms backwards, one after the other, (as if you’re pretending to do the backstroke) for 30 seconds.
- Finally, perform a front lunge, side lunge and back lunge stepping with the same leg, then switch to the other leg and repeat. Continue for one minute. Now, get ready to HIIT it!
