18 Minute Tabata-Style HIIT Workout

Updated: Nov 3


High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an exercise routine that incorporates bursts of intense exercise followed by a short recovery period.  


HIIT workouts improve your cardiovascular efficiency and stimulate the production of your human growth hormone. These workouts are also a great way to reach your maximum heart rate while getting a  good workout in a short period of time. 


Today we are going to perform a Tabata style HIIT workout.  We’re going to alternate between 2 exercises in each cycle and complete each cycle four times before moving on to the next. 


Make sure you warm up before doing any workout. Here’s the classic Fit for Self warm-up routine.
