I have taught a few group exercise classes at the Y this month, including a HIIT class last Sunday that was a total sweat fest. I knew as soon as class was over that I had to share the HIIT workout with you guys.
The workout features three blocks of four, 45-second intervals that have tons of jumping movements like jump rope, speed skaters and burpees. I was sore for two days in my butt and outer hips from the speed skaters! After each block is a tabata blast of two alternating exercises.
Jumping July HIIT Workout
You’ll want to warm up with some light cardio or dynamic stretching for about 5-10 minutes before jumping into the workout. After your warm up, the workout should take you about 35 minutes to complete. Here it is in all its glory!
You should be familiar with all of the movements in this workout since I’ve featured them in previous workouts. If you need a demo of the speed skaters, check out this video. If you need a demo of the single arm dumbbell swings, check out this video. Note: you will complete each block 2x through before moving onto the tabata blast.
Be sure to modify whenever necessary and remember that proper form is always more important than squeezing out more reps or taking a harder variation. For example, if you do push ups on your toes but can barely bend your elbows each rep, you’d be better off dropping to the knees and getting full range of movement.
July Workout Playlist
If you need a soundtrack for your workout, I put together a fun playlist on Spotify for my classes on Sunday.
As always, let me know if you have any questions about the workout and I’d love to hear your feedback. Report back on this post with a comment, send me a Snap (username: jendecurtins), tag me on Instagram or post on my Facebook page! 🙂
