It’s been a hectic week, and to be honest life has been absolutely disrupted. Point is I haven’t had the time to go to the gym since after 13th September. And for the longest time I was feeling pretty terrible about it. But then these HIIT exercises I read in Pune Mirror (16th September) came to my rescue. Thank God for that.
It’s been a week, and I don’t feel bad about not going to the gym anymore. ‘cos these HIIT exercises have done quite a rad job. Don’t believe me? Try them out for yourself, you’ll know what I am talking about. The best part is you don’t need anything more than your room and a chair to carry them out.
Jumping jacks – 30 second
Wall sit lower body – 30 second
Push-up (upper body) – 30 seconds
Abdominal crunch core – 30 seconds
Step-up onto chair – 30 seconds
Squat lower body – 30 seconds
Triceps dip on chair upper body – 30 seconds
Plank – 30 seconds
High knees/jogging on the spot – 30 seconds
Lunge lower body – 30 seconds
Push-up and rotation upper body – 30 seconds
Side plank core – 30 seconds
Repeat circuit twice/thrice for effective results.
Make sure you don’t overdo it the first day. Try repeating the circuits only gradually, one day at a time, if in case you feel that your body can’t take 2-3 circuits on the first day. The first week will leave you a little sore, but it’s worth it. No pain, no gain :)
So if you don’t have “time” to visit the gym, and really want to start working out, you should give this set a try. Good luck! :)
