All those who’ve been with me on social media know about my love for HIITs. I started sharing my results with everyone when I realised the exercises were working for me, and I give all the credits of the tone and definition I’ve achieved now to my beloved HIITs. I had a set of 10-15 routines with me, and I followed them religiously for the last 2 years. Over the months I have found a favorite (designed by Kris Gethin), and today I thought was a good day to share it with you.
Note- If you’re just starting, 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. The idea is to get used to the bursts of energy, but that happens with time. You will need stamina, and you will need to work towards it slowly.
The best part is you don’t need anything more than your room and a chair to carry them out.
This set is ideally completed in 7 minutes (my personal best is 7 minutes YAY) –
Jumping jacks – 30
Wall sit – 30 second
Push-ups – 30
Abdominal crunches– 30
Step-ups (use a chair) – 30
Squats – 30
Triceps dip (use chair) – 30
Plank – 30 seconds
High knees – 30
Walking Lunges –30
Push-ups – 30
Side plank (each side) – 30 seconds
Repeat circuit twice/thrice for effective results.
This set might make you sore and have you feeling lazy, but that’s a part and parcel of HIIT. Hang in there, give your muscles some rest, eat well, eat healthy, and jump back the next day. It gets better over time (Promise- I started with 2 rounds, I can do 5 on good days without pushing myself too much)
