Beginners HIT workout

Beginners HIT workout

I had a request for a basic but effective High Intensity Interval workout, so I thought I would share it here for others too. It is suitable for beginners, but can be scaled up and down to make it easier/harder if needed.

So here goes!

The Rounds

  • Round 1 – Do each exercise for 20 seconds. Take as short a rest between exercises as possible (0-10 seconds). Rest x1 minute before starting the second round…
  • Round 2 – Do each exercise for 40 seconds. Take as short a rest between exercises as possible (0-10 seconds). Rest x1 minute before starting the final round…
  • Round 3 – Do each exercise for 60 seconds. Take as short a rest between exercises as possible (0-10 seconds).

The Exercises

Adaptations

Because everyone’s fitness level is different, this is easily adapted to make it easier/harder in the following ways:

  • Shorter rest periods to make it harder.
  • Increase number of reps in the time limit to make it harder.
  • Double up the rounds to make it harder
  • Swap for harder exercises to make it harder.

Give it a go and let me know how you get along!
