8 week Hiit training program schedule

Happy Workout Wednesday! A New program to test in my hands and already in progress since last Friday. (If you follow me on Instagram you would know about my struggle already), but now let me telling you for the new HIIT training program I am testing out. (So you don’t have to).

This Hiit cutting program is recommended by Bodybuilding.com experts and as felt that I need an adventure – I signed up for it.

I can tell you – this one is really tough for a beginner or someone who lakc out of diet and constant heavy exercising for a while. ( I have been out for quite a while so it is pretty tough, I must admit). 

The program goes like this:

8 WEEK HIIT TRAINING PROGRAM

  • Touch Toes – 15 Reps (Touch toes quickly, come right back up and repeat)
  • Lunges – 10 reps/leg
  • Side Lunges – 10 reps each direction
  • Butt Kicks – 25 yards(22m)
  • High Knees – 25 yards
  • Arm Circles – 20 reps

  • Thursday – PM HIIT Workout 30 Seconds Brisk Walk, 30 Seconds Sprint, Repeat 7 More Times (8 Minutes Total)

So this is the original schedule I am doing at the moment with a slight modifications to the schedule to fit in my lifestyle better.

  • Monday – PM Full Body Weight Training
  • Tuesday – PM HIIT Workout 30 Seconds Brisk Walk, 30 Seconds Sprint, Repeat 7 More Times (8 Minutes Total)
  • Wednesday – Rest

  • Friday – Rest 
  • Saturday – Leg Day

Mostly I came to these changes as on weekend I have more time to have a proper workout and also the gym is not so packed as on workday evenings.

First Run of the year with Nike app – loving the sunset

How did my first 2 workout go? Well decided to make this adventure as detailed as possible and made an immediate video check-in. (Forgive my poor skills and bad quality but that’s an evening, post workout, spontaneous video without any “cutting” and editing to keep the experience authentic).

 

An evening run of 4 kms. Honestly of how it really go. (Also had kept in miles. I was not sure how much I did, till my legs were about to give up and had to stop.) 

However loved the evening run – helped also with my jetlag and made me realized how much missed dedicated training and all those post-endorphins! 

Next day hit the gym for a leg day. Must tell you – driving home afterwards was quite a challenge. Not telling you about next days how I avoided stairs..

And then came the HIIT day..

Do you see the determination in my eyes before that HIIT?

Well the determination was there as outside was like -6C and still had the worst jet lag ever + my legs were slightly sore after previous day workout.

See for yourself how my short HIIT go.

Telling you- this was longest 8 minutes ever of sprint & walking!

 

So fit fam – nothing is lost, there is no deadlines to start! So just join in with me or just try out after I have finished or just simply stay active, go outdoors and enjoy this winter from a sporty perspective! Summer is coming, after all!

Have you tried any HIIT? which is your preferred drill? Post in comments.
