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
- High knees
- Push ups
- Jump squats
- Forearm plank
- Jumping jacks
