10 Minute HIIT Workout

This is a high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout suitable for all fitness levels. I have included low impact and/or lower intensity versions of the exercises where applicable, so even beginners should be able to do it.

The Details

This is a 10 minutes workout.

There are 5 exercises.

The sequence of exercises will be repeated twice.

The intervals are 30 seconds. 30 seconds work followed by 30 seconds rest.

The goal is to use near maximum effort during the work period.

Note For Beginners

If you are a beginner you can use the lower intensity version of the exercises, with the aim of gradually being able to complete the workout doing the high intensity versions of the exercises. If you need to stop and catch your breath or grab a sip of water, that’s okay. Just try and get back in to it as quick as you can.

The key point is to work hard for each 30 second period. As long as you are doing that, regardless of what fitness level you are starting from, you will get fitter and stronger over time. I have witnessed this many times with personal training clients and with  people in my classes, so stick with it!
