Metabolic HIIT Workout

HIIT-workoutIf there is something we love here at Fit Bottomed Girls it’s a quick HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout that will get your heart rate up, work all of your major muscle groups and torch calories in a short amount of time. Talk about a win-win, people!

And this HIIT workout is designed to teach your metabolism to work for you by combing high-energy moves with quick intervals of rest. All you need to make this magic happen is a mat, a set of dumbbells (medium weight) and a kettlebell. Let’s do this thing!

Metabolic HIIT Workout

For each exercise, aim for five to 10 rounds with 20 seconds of effort, followed by 20 seconds of rest. If you do 10 rounds of each move, this workout will take just over an hour. Do five rounds of each and your HIIT workout is just over 30 minutes. Now get ready for some serious metabolic training!

    I had a question. Is HIIT intended for anyone? Or those who are closer to their goal weight? I’m a plus size girl. And was wondering if doing these types of workouts everyday might help with my weight loss efforts

      Hi Cristina,

      Good question! As long as you don’t have any restrictions on movement and an okay from your doctor, yep, you should be good. Modify all the moves as necessary and now that it’s more about your intensity (how hard you’re working — heart rate) than what weight you’re lifting or what version of a move you’re doing. Make sense? 🙂

  4. Good day readers! I would like to share a study problem that happened with me a few months ago. I had to write an assignment and I could not do it by myself, but one of my one of my best friends has shown me writing company and now, I can do my work, and not even think about my hometasks at all. It is so cool and it is true. So, if you need, you can use it right now!!!

  5. Very informative article for exercise lovers. As exercise is a basic need of life if you want to maintain fitness.

  6. Thanks for sharing such a nice information with us. Keep sharing and updating us in future.
