Since all of the gyms remain closed for a while, I thought it might be interesting to share some of my home workout routines with all of you. Today's workout: HIIT Full Body Routine.
Ever since the coronavirus situation happened and all of the gyms are closed, we are sentenced to home workout. However, I have actually started to workout even more and get even better results in terms of weight loss and have been able to decrease my fat percentage rapidly. How? A lot of HIIT workouts.
When going to the gym, it's very tempting to start working out by simply lifting weights. These kind of workouts feel good, make you feel strong and above all; you're not often out of breath. That last part makes it tempting to do those workouts over and over again. I'm not saying these type of workouts are easy and do not have benefits, far from that, but it's easy to get stuck in a repetitive workout routine. I believe it's important to mix things up and combine multiple different types of workouts into your workout routine.
I, like most people, am not a big fan of cardio. I want to have lean muscles, a showing sixpack and a great condition (they are even necessary in the industry I'm active in), but I preferably achieve those things without a lot of effort. Well, bummer; that doesn't work. It's as simple as that. I know workout out in general feels good, and if your goal is not to have lean muscles and a showing sixpack or whatever, it's okay to perform the type of workouts you prefer, even if those don't include cardio routines. Even if that means doing similar things every time. However, if you're motivated to lose weight, drop fat percentage and build great condition, this workout might be perfect for you.

Since I started doing HIIT workouts, my fat percentage has dropped rapidly, my conditioning has improved and I feel much more energized. I hope it does the same for you and that's why I'm sharing my routine with you. I hope it helps.
The routines is a full body workout and consists of 14 exercises. You perform every exercise for 30 seconds and take 15 seconds of rest in between exercises. One rounds takes 11 minutes in total and you preferably do 4 rounds in total. However, when starting out with HIIT workouts, you can start with 1 rounds and build it up to 4 over time. So let's start:
Lunges Right Leg
Lunges Left Leg
Elbow to Hand Plank
Side Plank Right
Side Plank Left
This workout is most effective when done at least 2 times a week. Combine HIIT workouts with strengthening workout for best results.
This HIIT routine addresses almost every muscle in your body and will burn fat quicker than most workouts. It will improve your overall health and conditioning and will leave you feeling better and more energized. This workout routine is definitely one of my favorite HIIT routines and has helped me massively in becoming and staying in great shape!
