Beginner HIIT Routine to Get Your Heartrate Up

Posted by Kristin Reichert on Oct 04, 20

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a dynamic workout technique designed to raise your heart-rate and burn more calories. It is centered around bursts of short but intense exercise, intermingled with brief recovery exercises. 

Why HIIT?

A big draw of HIIT is that your body will continue to burn calories even after the workout is over, and can give greater results in less time than a steady state cardio regime. But to get that burn, HIIT workouts can be challenging. So if you are new to HIIT, give this beginner routine a try.

All you will need for this workout is a mat and some room to move. Each exercise should flow into the next, but take a short break and get some water when you feel like you need to. And don’t forget to warm up and cool down!


Take a three minute rest at the end of the set and repeat through a second time. If you need more challenge, do the routine a third time.
