I like to do HIIT workouts on the treadmill using time or distance and doing a 1:2 work/recovery ratio for a short (~20 minutes) amount of time. For example, if I’m doing time I might run at my fastest comfortable pace for 30 seconds and walk for 60 seconds. If I’m doing distance, I might run at my fastest comfortable pace for 0.25 miles and walk for 0.25 miles.
It’s also fun to mix up workouts by doing tabata-style training. I’ll post tabata’s on this page, too. The tabata workouts will be 20 seconds as hard as you can followed by 10 seconds of rest. The number of suggested rounds will vary. A quick example of a tabata workout is:
Jump Squats (20 seconds HARD) rest for 10 seconds)//Burpies ((20 seconds HARD) rest for 10 seconds//Jumping Lunges (20 seconds HARD) rest for 10 seconds)//Plank Jacks (20 seconds HARD) rest for 10 seconds)// Repeat 4 times for a total of 8 minutes.
Because of the intensity of these workouts, it’s important that you have a solid exercise foundation. Please don’t try a HIIT workout if you’re new to working out.
As always, honor your body. Also remember to check with your healthcare provider. Just because an exercise is high intensity doesn’t mean it’s always high impact, but sometimes that’s the case. If jumping or explosive movements bother your joints or other areas of your body, I suggest finding different workouts that feel better for your body. We only get one body, lets take care of it the best we can! <3
