Get excited because we have some incredible new HIIT workouts which have just launched in the KIC app! These workouts from our Master Trainer Brooke are guaranteed to get get your heart rate up and your water bottle emptied.
We know that you’ll feel seriously accomplished and revel in your post-workout glow after taking on one of these workouts.
For anyone new to HIIT style workouts or for anyone feeling a little intimated by the thought of high intensity movements, we want to remind you that you can do it! In each workout, Brooke provides beginner suggestions and is always encouraging you to take the workout at your own pace. If you need a little extra rest between rounds, you can always extend your rest time by simply pausing the workout (this will help you to take on the next round feeling more ready and rested).
Alongside this, you can always modify the exercises within the workout to suit your fitness level and ability better! Changing some of the exercises to be lower impact will mean that your workout will be gentler on both your heart rate and your body. For example, feel free to swap any of the jumping movements for their equivalent static movement (e.g. swapping jump squats to body weight squats).
Making these simple changes will help to make your workout more enjoyable and feel much less out of reach. You might even find yourself thinking that perhaps you don’t despise high intensity workouts as much as you thought. We also love that you’ll then have the goal of working towards completing the workout exercise for exercise. You’ve got this!
