“Squeezing in this 30 minute HIIT (High Intesity Interval Training) workout today will contribute to your goal of 150 minutes of physical activity each week. I particularly like HIIT workouts because they they go by fast, are effective in conditioning your heart and cardiovascular system, and produce results! I hope you enjoy this workout as much as I did!”

– Dr. Margaret Litchy-Miller

Recipe For a HIIT Workout

Perform each exercise in order for 45 seconds with 15 seconds rests before the next activity. When you have completed all 7 exercises, rest for 1 minute and repeat (total 3 cycles and less than 30 minutes)

  • Pushups
  • Squats — be sure to keep your knees over your toes and do not over-extend
  • Buttkicks — kick your feet up towards your butt–if you can kick your bottom, even better
  • Tricep Dips — use a steady table or chair
  • Side Lunges — alternating sides for the 45 seconds
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Sit-ups
