HIIT for Beginners Week 4: Cardio Intervals


Today’s session features cardio interval training that can easily be done in a small space at home. In our workout video below, after we warm up, we’ll alternate periods of higher intensity with active rest to help you maximize your workout time while also building your cardiovascular stamina. I’ll show you both high- and low-impact options so you can make the moves work for you. Listen to your body throughout the sessions, and modify or skip any moves that are too much for your current fitness level. (I’ll also provide options throughout the routines to help you make it work for you.)
