Can I do HIIT workouts at home?

Simple, yet effective. With competing demands and hectic schedules, many women often have difficulty finding time in their busy lives for exercise. HIIT workouts are so popular because of their time-efficiency and fast results. They’re also a really great way to get your blood pumping!

If you’re considering a HIIT workout but aren’t sure if you can make it to the gym, a HIIT workout at home can be just as effective and just as fun. While HIIT workouts are complimented by the inclusion of equipment, you can still have a productive sweat session with no equipment required.

What do I need to do HIIT workouts at home?

Although you can still enjoy a perfectly good HIIT workout sans equipment, you’ll really feel the benefits of your at-home HIIT workouts if you have a few handy pieces of equipment available.

  • Yoga mat – support and protect your joints during high-impact exercise and have a stretch post-workout.
  • Lightweight dumbbells – elevate your HIIT workout at home with weights.
  • Resistance bands – resistance training is a great way to get the most out of your HIIT workout.
  • Skipping rope – perfect for short bursts of cardio, lightweight and easy to store.

Best HIIT exercises at home when you don’t have equipment

  • Mountain climbers
  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Burpees
  • Plank
  • High knees
  • Push ups
  • Jump squats
  • Forearm plank
  • Jumping jacks
