Add these 4 HITT exercises to your exercise cheat sheet

Hear us out, this is *actually* good

4 HITT exercises

The words ‘HITT exercises’ have a way of making people feel anxious (us too) so we thought of 4 exercises that could make workouts feel less dreadful (eventually). 

These moves are great for beginners and intermediate fitness levels – they work the whole body, make you feel great and most importantly you won’t think of quitting halfway through. 

1.Punch, baby! 

This one’s perfect for a full-body sweat sesh and you don’t need to join a class, have a punching bag or gloves. Boxing burns an amazing amount of calories and tones your body all over. Master the basics like the jab, cross, uppercut and lead hand hook. For the hand hook imagine that you’re punching around something directly in front of you, using your dominant hand to take a chin-level swing as you pivot on your front foot.

Before you dismiss it, trust us on this one. Take it at your pace and set a goal for yourself. It’s the ultimate HITT exercise and strength training. With every rep you’ll strengthen your arms, quads, chest, glutes, hamstrings and abs. As you progress, change your burpee variation so that your chest hits the floor – it’s even more explosive.
