You don’t need to be at a gym to do this workout. HIIT, which stands for high intensity interval training can be done anywhere and anytime. HIIT is a highly efficient short burst of exercise that have you dripping with sweat and shedding fat in just 8 minutes. This fast-paced, heart-pounding, high intensity workout is designed specifically to challenge your body from every angle. I chanced upon HIIT only this June and I love it ever since.

It gets my body going after the first 4 minutes with simple moves but boy, it isn’t easy.

HIIT in Tabata style is what I do; 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. With 4 to 6 different exercises and changing the exercise sequences every 20-seconds will confuse your muscles in a good way and boost your metabolism to its max. This is why HIIT is best done in the morning right after you wake up. It will not only wake you up but boost your metabolism throughout the day. And, the best part is there is no equipment needed, as your body is the only piece of equipment you would need.

How it works:
5 different exercises
20 seconds work
10 seconds rest
Equipment needed: dumbells (optional), Timer

Do between 4 and 8 rounds
1 round = 8 Sets (4 minutes)

Exercise 1) Lizard Hops – 20 seconds
10 seconds rest/shuffles (Active rest)
Exercise 2) Burpees + Push ups + Thigh Slaps
10 seconds rest/shuffles (Active rest) 
Exercise 3) Star Jump
