What is HIIT?
High-intensity interval training, or H.I.I.T., is based on the concept that short bursts of strenuous exercise can have a significant impact on the body. If you don't think you have time to exercise, H.I.I.T. could be the best workout for you.
Stand as wide as your shoulders, with your feet as wide as your shoulders and your toes pointing forward and outwards in a V shape. Squat with your knees bent to support the weight of your heel. Get low enough by pushing your glutes back, as if the chair is behind you.
During the exercise, your weight should be transferred to the ground via your heels, and once at the bottom, you should stand back up.
Lay flat on your stomach with your hands on the floor, your body in a plank position. Tighten your core and tuck your glutes. Exhale as you push with your hands, forming an A-sign from above. When pushing, keep your elbows close to your torso and chest.
Lay on your back with your elbows under your shoulders, your hands flat on the floor, and your core engaged. Slowly raise yourself up, keeping your forearms and knees on the floor, until your body is in a straight line from your knees to your head. Maintain your position for as long as possible.
How to do an effective 20-minute workout?
Do 10 squats, 10 push-ups and a 60-second plank, and repeat it 10 times. You can rest for around 30 seconds between each round.
Easy right? You absolutely can do an effective workout between your tight schedule.
Doing routine workout can be challenging. If finding motivation is the problem preventing you from exercising regularly, enrolling in fitness classes is a great place to start especially if you can find one that allows you to book a class online using an easy to use fitness software.
