A no Jumping HIIT workout is important if you are living in an apartment and you don’t want to make mortal enemies of all your neighbours.
They are also very useful for those looking for a low impact exercises for a HIIT workout that will give them the same results as other high intensity interval training workouts. (Most HIIT Bodyweight workout exercises are pretty dynamic)
More importantly, lets take a look at the workout.
No Jumping HIIT Workout
- The HIIT workout with no jumping has 8 exercises
- You will do each exercise for 45 seconds
- You will rest for 15 seconds after each exercise.
|No Jumping HIIT Workout||Interval||Rest|
|Inchworm||45 Sec||15 Sec|
|Pulse Lunch – L||45 Sec||15 Sec|
|Pulse Lunge – R||45 Sec||15 Sec|
|Bear Crawl to Push Up||45 Sec||15 Sec|
|Lateral Squat||45 Sec||15 Sec|
|Spiderman Push Up||45 Sec||15 Sec|
|Pulse Squat||45 Sec||15 Sec|
|Spiderman Plank||45 Sec||15 Sec|
So here is how the HIIT workout is done. Each interval training set is 45 seconds long. You will start with the first exercise and do as many reps as you can in the time limit allowed. When it finishes, rest for 15 seconds and then go into the next exercise and do as many reps as you can for 45 seconds. Proceed through all the exercise, doing as many reps as you can until the end. If your fitness is still improving, then you can leave it at one set, but if you would like to challenge yourself, then do all the exercises again for a second time.
- There are brief rests in the workout, so there isn’t a lot of time to recover but, you’ll notice that the workout alternates from an upper body exercise to a lower body exercise. So an example of this is going from an inchworm into a lunge. So, what this means is that even though you won’t give your heart rate a real chance to recover, you are going to be giving your muscles about 75 seconds’ rest between each set. (Some exercises use the whole body)
- The challenge is to boost your metabolism without no jumping. So how will we do that? The answer lies in putting the muscles in a challenging holding position and not giving them a break until the end of the set. As you can see with the exercise selection, there isn’t a lot of movement, but the positions themselves will challenge you and get your heart rate pumping faster. (as well as get those muscles to burn!)
