Body Weight HIIT Workout (Guest post by @Bitesbybecs)

‘High Intensity Interval Training’ is a great form of exercise – it is a perfect way to squeeze a workout into a busy day and even better it can be done at home! So if you fancy burning some calories in a short amount of time, give this a go! All you’ll need is yourself and a bottle of water!

Before you begin, ensure you have warmed up and stretched to prevent any injuries occurring.

Complete each exercise for 40 seconds and then rest for 20 seconds. Rest for 2 minutes between each set. Complete the whole workout twice. The whole workout will take you 30 minutes.

Don’t forget to cool down and stretch after the workout too. GOOD LUCK!

Set 1

1. Skipping (If you have a rope that’s perfect, otherwise just complete the motion that you would with a skipping rope!)

2. High knees sprinting on the spot

3. Side skaters (Begin in a squat position. Jump to the left side landing on your left leg and bring your right leg behind your left ankle without it touching the floor. Then jump to the right landing on your right leg and brining your left leg behind your right ankle without it touching the floor).
