How are you spending your lunch hour? Are you productive? Do you use it to stay active? If you cannot make it to your FIT36® studio for a session, you can try these five ideas to bring your lunch hour to a new level. After all, that’s the beauty of HIIT, you don’t need much time to burn a lot of fat.
If you have the ability to go outside for a run or utilize your office treadmill; running is a great way to get a quick, intense workout. Start off with a warm up by going for 3 to 5 minutes at a gentle pace. Then sprint for 30 seconds to a minute. Rest for 30 seconds and repeat your intervals ten times. Find a hill or increase the incline on your treadmill to intensify your intervals.
This quick workout consists of three circuits: Wide Squats, Pushups, and Ab Throwdowns. Each circuit consists of working for 30 seconds followed by a 15-second rest. This circuit works your entire body. Like any HIIT workout, make sure that you’re pushing yourself to the max when working and allowing your heart rate to slow when resting.

First, do 45 Mountain Climbers, then 20-30 Pushups, and front plank for 1 minute. Finish the circuit by jump roping for 1 minute. Rest for a minute and repeat the entire circuit four times.
