Top Hiit Workouts For Best Fitness

HIIT, the acronym for High Intensity Interval Training, is the maxim for faster weight loss and also overall fitness. Studies have shown that HIIT enhances metabolism for longer periods compared to weight training and jogging. As a result, these high intensity workouts are more effective to lead to quicker weight loss. The post below offers a brief on top HIIT workouts to level up your fitness game.

Tabata Circuits

This program is a mix-up of multiple HIIT exercises. Each of them should be performed for around 20 seconds and there should be 10-second interval in between. The exercises that form the core of Tabata training are – squat jumps, high-knee running, burpees and mountain climbers.


This exercise should be done in between your jogging or brisk walking sessions. You can sprint for maximum 15-20 seconds. After that, you will start slow with a jog or walk for a minute. Follow the same routine after every ten or twenty minutes.

Bike sprints

You will need a stationery exercise bike. If you don’t have one in your home, you may join a gym. It’s a very simple yet effective exercise. All you would have to do here is to mount the bike and then pedal hard for no more than 30 seconds. It would be followed by slow easy pedaling for 1 minute. Continue this pattern for 15-30 minutes.

Sled pushes

You have to load around 70-85% of optimum push capacity to sled. Now, you will have to push the weight as hard as possible till it could be hardly moved. Now, go back to starting position. Follow the same exercise again but make sure to take 5 minutes of rest in between.

While exercises are really important, you should also focus on proper diet and nutritious supplements to keep yourself healthy, fit and in perfect shape. You may consult for your nutrition and supplement guide.
