The Six-Minute Full Body HIIT Workout
If there is one trend in fitness that is here to stay, it's the shorter workout. Also referred to as "micro-workouts," they solve the number one problem most people have when it comes to exercise – lack of time. You can get rid of that excuse once-and-for-all: Studies have shown that shorter sessions add up, that three 10-minute workouts are just as effective as one 30-minute session. That's awesome news.
I believe that these shorter sessions can oftentimes be more effective than one longer workout. You can push yourself harder when the duration is decreased. It's quality over quantity.
The most important aspect of shorter workouts is that you are much more likely to do them, and consistency is everything when it comes to being successful with exercise. Finding time to go to the gym, spend an hour there, then go home? That's tough for many to do on a daily basis, and now science says you don't have to.
If you think a six-minute workout isn't worthwhile (or tough enough), think again. This full-body HIIT workout consists of four exercises:
- Pop Squats
- Double Crunches
You will do each one for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, and do the circuit three times through.
Happy New Year!
