HIIT Workout for a Snow Day

This week I’ve been running a fun workout trial group on Facebook and today I’m excited to share one of the group workouts with all of my blog readers too!

Since I’m completing a lot of my workouts at home these days, I’m constantly putting together high intensity interval training workouts. They’re very convenient when you are exercising with two babies, and I definitely have a love/hate relationship with these workouts.

I love them:

  1. because HIIT workouts are fast! They take less than 30 minutes to complete.
  2. because they use little to no equipment. Traditional HIIT workouts use mainly bodyweight so you can literally do these workouts just about anywhere.
  3. and because they work! Did you know HIIT workouts can boost your metabolism for up to 48 hours after you finish your workout?

The only reason I sometimes hate HIIT workouts is because they’re challenging and are never done before your muscles start to burn like crazy. It’s amazing how you can sweat so much, lose your breath, and build so much strength in just fifteen or 20 minutes!

So, if you’re in a part of the country that’s been or is being crushed with snow (like we are today), don’t let the wintry weather be an excuse to not workout. Set aside about 15 minutes and you’ll still have time to shovel (yay!). Give it a try and let me know what you think.
