HIIT for Beginners Week 1: Walking Intervals
In This Article

WELCOME TO HIIT FOR BEGINNERS!

Today’s session features walking-based interval training that can even be done in a small space at home. In our workout video below, we’ll alternate periods of higher intensity with active rest to help you make the most out of your workout time and build up your fitness level. I’ll show you both high- and low-impact options so you can modify. 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.)
