One of these facets is the importance of fitness in your daily regimen to make sure your body is getting the nourishment it deserves, both from the inside and from the outside. Keep reading as we talk about some easy-to-do HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts to get your blood pumping.

 

Decline Pushups

 

If you don’t have access to workout equipment in your home – not to worry! There are many workout techniques you can do without equipment, starting with the decline pushup. First, put both hands on the floor and both feet up on a bench. Keeping your back straight, lower your body until your elbows are at 90 degrees, and repeat.

 

Walking Plank

 

This one starts with your forearms on the ground and your body in plank position. Then, walk up to a full plank position while keeping your palms on the ground and your elbows straight. Your abs should be getting a good workout from this technique, so be sure to keep your body steady throughout the movement.

 

Russian Twists

 

For this technique, start with your back on the floor and bend your knees to a 90 degree angle while resting on your heels. Then, while holding a medicine ball in front of you with your back on an angle, begin by twisting the torso in both directions. Be sure to rest and stretch between sets.

 

Weighted Step-ups

 

Weighted step-ups are a great way to work out your legs. First, grab two dumbbells in both hands (or any other weights you have at your disposal) and begin by stepping on a bench with one leg. Once your body is up on the bench, step down with your other leg and repeat.

 

Woodchopper

 

Using a heavier weight (can be any household object if you don’t have access to gym equipment), bend your knees and make sure your feet are firmly planted on the ground, and then swing the object in an upward motion from your foot to the opposite side of your body. Be sure to tighten your abs and make your movement as fluid as possible, to avoid soreness.

 

Tuck Jumps

 

This is another technique that can be performed without the aid of any equipment. Start by squatting, then jump with the goal of getting your knees as high up to your chest as you can. Keep your knees limber and soft when you land and be sure to make your movements fast and dynamic throughout.

 

Chin-Ups

 

A classic at-home workout technique; all you need for chin-ups is a sturdy bar. With your grip underhanded, bend your knees and lift your chin up to the bar, keeping your hands shoulder-length apart. Chin-ups are great for your biceps. For a change, and to work out your lats a bit more, try the forehand grip with some pull-ups.

 

Always consult a physician before making any changes to your fitness or health regimen.
