Leg HIIT

*Please note that I forgot to film a demo of the last exercise (long jump + (2) jacks back) — Oops!

This is my favorite workout so far this week!  There are a lot of exercises, but it goes quickly.  I taught a version of this to my Barre Cardio class and added light dumbbell arm work between sets for an added challenge.

Equipment: none (or light dumbbells if you add the bonus arm exercises)

Program: 20 seconds work/10 seconds rest x 12 rounds.  Repeat for a total of two times (or 3 times if you dare!)

Exercises:

  1. (2) jacks + (2) jabs
  2. speedskaters
  3. high knees
  4. squat jack + alternating touch
  5. shuffle + alternating lunge touch
  6. bunny hop + squat
  7. criss cross + tuck
  8. jump squat + pulse
  9. knee drivers (right leg)
  10. side shuffle + knee lift
  11. knee drivers (left leg)
  12. long jump + (2) jacks back

Bonus dumbbell arm work between sets: (1 minute) overhead press, front/side raises, punches
