So, here’s the deal. HIIT is NO EXCUSES allowed!
For 3 weeks I’ve worked out 6 days a week with HIIT and 2 days of yoga. I don’t even have to tell you life is busy. Everyone knows that. With 30 minutes or less workouts there are NO EXCUSES to not workout. As soon as there was even the slightest bit of hesitation and the cycle of excuses started,
I DON’T HAVE TIME,
I DON’T FEEL LIKE IT,
I NEED TO STUDY…..
my mind immediately went to ONE counter argument…
IT’S ONLY 30 MINUTES!
And, literally, that has been all it takes to crush six days a week of workouts, and to reap the benefits of HIIT, torching calories, sculpting muscle and to feel amazing!
I’m trying something a little different with HIIT 5. Recovery between circuits is active core focused recovery.

- Don’t skip the warm-up or cool-down.
- Use proper body alignment and good form.
- Weights and intensity should be based on your fitness level.
- Modify as needed to meet your fitness level by increasing/decreasing weights or reps.
- Gradually increase intensity and/or repetitions based on your progress.
For this to work and to keep things fun, challenging and interesting, I use a combination of 2 total body HIIT workouts and 2 cardio HIIT workouts.
My week might look like this:
Monday: Total Body HIIT Workout
Tuesday: Total Body HIIT Workout 2
Wednesday: Cardio HIIT
Thursday: Total Body HIIT Workout , Hot Yoga
Friday: Total Body HIIT Workout 2
Saturday: Hot Yoga, Cardio HIIT
On Friday I’ll give you another Total Body HIIT workout to combine with Total Body HIIT 5. Add your cardio and you have 6 days of no excuses workouts.
In the mean time use any of the following workouts to cycle throughout the week:
Turn on your favorite playlist. Turn up the volume. GO!
It’s important to remember, as with any type of exercise, HIIT isn’t for everyone. It’s an incredibly effective method for improving fitness in a short time, but it’s also extremely taxing on the body. HIIT duration, intensity and rest periods should be based on your individual fitness level.
