HIIT Workouts have one simple objective: to maximize calories burned in a short amount of time. The idea is that you do short periods of work at a relatively high intensity followed by short periods of rest.
The workouts in this plan will consist of bodyweight exercises and a few that will require dumbbells, kettlebells, bands or cables, a bench and a jump rope.
Each workout will be less than 10 minutes long.
The goal of HIIT Training is intensity, not duration. You don’t need to spend a lot of time performing these type of workouts.
Most HIIT Workouts can be between 5 to 30 minutes long. I made the workouts in this 30 day plan 10 minutes long because I believe most people can really push themselves for that amount of time.
You can do 1 workout every day or even every other day. For those of you that are really conditioned, you can do two.
Days 1-15- These are time based workouts where you will be given a specific duration to complete each movement. Depending on the workout, you will complete 3-4 sets and rest 25 or 30 seconds.
Days 16-30- These workouts will contain tri sets. A tri set is composed of 3 exercises that need to be done back to back with little to no rest. After you finish the 3rd movement, you will rest 60-90 seconds and complete 3-4 sets, depending on the workout.
