High Intensity Interval Training | No Equipment Needed.
Leg HIIT workouts are such a great time saver and super effective way of getting a quick and effective leg and cardio workout in at home or anywhere. The best part of this plyometric, no equipment Leg HIIT workout at home is that you can make it your own to suit your needs and it uses body weight only. HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training and is a great way to get your strength training done in less time.
You can get so much work done during this 4 minute, plyometric based hiit workout. There’s very little rest which is great for cardiovascular and muscular endurance. High intensity leg workouts are a great addition to your training program when you’re short on time or can’t get to the gym.
You can do this leg hitt workout as a warmup, once through, or even as circuits for a more intense and longer plyometric cardio workout. You don’t even need an exercise mat for these lower body plyo exercises.
No Time? No Equipment? Not a problem! I’ve got you covered with this no gym equipment cardio based Leg HIIT workout
Leg HIIT Workout at Home | Plyometric Interval Training
It doesn’t matter what your fitness level is for this hiit routine as you’re in control of your speed and effort. Make sure you have enough space and do a few minutes of dynamic stretching to warm up both your lower body and upper body. You can also take the first round easy as a warm up circuit before going into maximum effort circuits.
For the best results from HIIT workouts and interval training you really need to go 100% during the exercise with good form as they’re for such a short period of time. During the short rests keep gently moving e.g. step taps, arm circles, low impact jog on the spot rather than standing completely still. Also, remember to cool down at the end and do some static stretches, especially of your hip flexors, quads and calves.
Perform all of these plyometric lower body workout exercises consecutively with proper form e.g core engaged and using complete range of motion. This complete workout isn’t based on the number of repetitions but is timed instead. Complete the entire workout before repeating the circuit.
