Holy HIIT that hurt

HIIT circuit training

We thought we would document the 5 best HIIT circuits/routines we have either done and/or want to do in the future. Why? Well I’ve gone into HIIT before but to simplify it, HIIT(ing) isn’t so bad because;

  • It increases your metabolism;
  • It’s quick and convenient – similar to how tinder/grinder sells itself; and
  • There is no equipment necessary.

So what are these five illustrious circuits? Well I am glad you asked…

5 circuits to rule them all… 5 of the best HIIT circuits which will make your drawl.

I recommend you do three circuits a week and I promise you after 4 weeks you will see and feel a difference!

1st the worse:

  • 30 seconds of burpess
  • 30 seconds of star jumps
  • 30 seconds of press ups
  • 30 seconds of lunges
  • 30 seconds of mountain climbers
  • 30 seconds of Russian twist

Make sure you have a 30 seconds rest between each exercise and 2 minute break after completing all exercises. Look to do 2 or more sets!

2nd the best:

  • 30 seconds sprint
  • 45 seconds squat jumps
  • Lunges 20 reps each leg
  • Calf raises for 50 reps.

Rest for 1- 2 minutes after you have finished all the exercises. Look to complete as many sets as possible!

3rd the one with the hairy chest:

  • 15 second dead mill sprint
    • Repeat 10 times with a minute break in between

After completing 10 reps have a 2 minute break and start again. 2 sets to 4 recommended…

HIIT circuit number 4 (I ran out of rhymes):

  • 20 seconds rowing as fast as possible – 10 seconds rest. Repeat 8 times.

Have a 2 minute rest the repeat again. 2 sets or more recommended!

HIIT circuit number 5:

  • Find a road sprint as fast as you can each time to a lamppost walk to the next. Repeat.

Aim for 15 minutes of exercise – however increase it dependant on fitness level.


I hope the above helps you to sweat like a dyslexic on countdown. And one thing I can promise, while not easy, it is a great way to start you down the journey of health and fitness!
