If you are working from home or avoiding public areas such as gyms due to Covid-19, or unfortunately (and ICFBI) didn’t get into the HIIT class you were waitlisted for, it’s time to realise the beauty of home workouts. We are referring to exercises you can do in the confines of your home ~any time~. Yasss, no mad rush to book into class and fumble with lockers and shoes.
All you need for a good sweat at home is an exercise mat (to provide grip and cushion your joints), a timer or timer app (to stay accountable), and a couple of free weights to up the intensity, if you wish.
For a 25-minute workout, do all 10 of these exercises for 30 seconds each, resting 15 seconds between each exercise. Repeat for three sets, with 60 seconds of rest between each set. Feel free to skip some exercises to shorten the duration. As some of the exercises (eg. high knees and burpees) are considered high-impact, don’t forget to put on a high-support sports bra.
