Sharing a quick and sweaty full body HIIT workout (plus a video!) that you can do at home.
This is a super short HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout designed to get an awesome sweat, build strength and power, and ride those endorphins the rest of the day. Friendly reminder that I am a personal trainer but not a doctor. Always check with a doctor before making any fitness changes. Honor your body and modify as needed. (I share lots of modification options in the full video!)
This 15-minute workout includes full-body movements that will challenge your muscles and torch calories. It’s bodyweight only and will get your heart pumping! When you incorporate HIIT in your routine, make sure that you include balanced cardio intensities and 1-2 days of full rest. Cooldown after your workouts, too.

Tips for doing HIIT workouts at home:
– Make sure you have enough space and that you’re wearing supportive and comfortable shoes
– Check out the floor! I like to do HIIT workouts on surfaces that aren’t so hard, like on carpet, a mat, or on a rug. It feels more gentle on my joints when I’m jumping.
– Don’t be afraid to modify and use what you have available. I share lots of modification options in the video above, but one of my favorite modifications for plank position movements (like burpees, plank jacks, and mountain climbers) is to put hands on the wall to decrease the pressure on your core. You can also do regular squats instead of the squat jacks.
Can you do HIIT workouts while pregnant?
Always check with a doctor before making any fitness changes. Honor your body and modify as needed. If HIIT workouts are something you did pre-pregnancy and your doctor gives the ok, focus on movement instead of trying to get your heart rate to its max during the intervals. You should always be able to speak a full phrase (example: say your entire address) without running out of breath. Modify any extreme core work or jumping to decrease the impact.
I hope you guys love this workout!
