Home Workout #32: 10 Minute HIIT HELL

10 Minutes and 120 Push-Ups!

This HIIT HELL workout is the perfect home or hotel room workout to do when you are in a rush! Cheers to metabolic training, baby! Today you will be alternating jump rope with push-ups. Oh, did I mention you are doing 120 push-ups?

Don't waste your time on the elliptical for 30-60 minutes a day doing LISS (low intensity steady state cardio) because you'd be further ahead folding socks. Here's why you should be doing short duration HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training):

  • It saves time
  • It leads to greater fat loss than LISS despite a smaller calorie burn during the actual exercise session. Why? It generates a much larger EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption), which is why more calories are burned post-workout. YES! HIIT allows the body to burn fat for up to 48 hours after the workout!
  • It triggers growth hormone production by your body, which an important hormone that helps you burn fat.

Note: You won’t get anything out of interval training if you don’t push yourself. Intervals are no fun. When I do them, my body is burning (from the high acid levels in the muscle) and I want it to stop! What I’m trying to say is that half-assing an interval workout will not accomplish any of the fat burning benefits you are after. If you aren’t going to push yourself on the intervals, then you should just do regular aerobic training.

Note: this is not recommended for first time exercisers.
