After making a pot of coffee, feeding the dogs, and packing my lunch this morning, I had just enough time for a quick 10-minute HIIT workout before hopping in the shower. I ended up liking this workout so much that I knew I’d have to share ASAP! I got the idea off of my bodyrock iPhone app (while groggily laying in bed still) and the best part is that it requires no equipment at all.
Try this 10 Minute HIIT workout guaranteed to fire up your metabolism and start your fat burning early!
Here’s what you do:
4 Rounds of 30 seconds work with 10 second rests (4x 30:10)
- Squat jumps (feet under hips, squat down keeping your chest up/butt back, touch the floor, jump, clap your hands overhead.)
- Squat/Burpee/Tuck Jump combo: squat, burpee (drop to pushup position, kick your legs back and jump back up into place), then perform a tuck jump (when jumping, bring both knees as high as possible, hitting both palms–held at chest height)
- Knees to Elbow Planks: holding a low pushup position (elbows bent to about 90 degrees) bring your right knee to the right elbow and then left elbow. Repeat on the left.
If you complete 4 rounds of each exercise for 30 seconds, only breaking for 10 between each one, the entire workout will take 10:30. I did this right before hopping in the shower and I felt amazing when finished.
