H.I.I.T Workout – “I went to the gym and did…”

Do you ever remember playing a memory game where there are a group of you and the first person would say “I went to the shop and bought…..a bucket”. The next person would then have to say “I went to the shop and bought a bucket…..and a bag of peas”. It would then keep going round the group adding things until someone forgot what was on the list.

Well this session I created is similar to that kind of thing. Each round gets longer and longer with new exercises added each time. Let me explain it further.

Each exercise is to be done for 30 seconds, just try to get as many reps as possible.

There is 30 seconds rest at the end of each round – this doesn’t change!

10 rounds in total.

I wrote down the exercises to be performed and numbered them:

  1. Step Ups
  2. Kettlebell Swings
  3. Squats
  4. Jumping Jacks
  5. Sit Ups
  6. Clean and Press
  7. Lunges
  8. Leg Raises
  9. Tricep Dips
  10. Burpees

Each round then looked like this:

Round 1: 1

Round 2: 1, 2

Round 3: 1, 2, 3

Round 4: 1, 2, 3, 4

Round 5: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Round 6: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Round 7: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Round 8: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Round 9: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Round 10: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

The first couple of rounds are not to bad as there is only one or two exercises to do and you get a good 30 seconds rest. From rounds 3/4 onwards it starts to get a bit challenging. You can obviously change the exercises you do, however, I would say keep the first few exercises relatively easy as you will be doing quite a few sets of them. This is why I put burpees at the end! Add weights and kettlebells in as desired to make it even more challenging.

Give it a go and let me know how you get on!

Have FUN!
