Weekly Workout: HIIT it or Quit It!

Hey Bangalore!  It’s almost time for Halloween and all the fall and winter fun we look forward to!

Before we swing into the holiday season, it’s  great time to start setting new fitness goals, and a great time to improve on old ones.  These workouts are designed to challenge your whole body, and they’re finished in less than 20 minutes. Make it your goal to do a HIIT workout at least four times a week…trust me, your body will thank you.

This week’s, “at home” workout was sent in by one of our readers!  It requires nothing more other than a wall, and a box or platform.  The higher the platform, the harder the workout will be!

(Workout Hack: You can make a box/platform by stacking two or three books together…it doesn’t have to be anything fancy.  Using a basketball is great as well!)


45 seconds high knees or mountain climbers
20 bicycle crunches (10 to each side)
45 seconds wall sit with arms overhead

Rest 30 seconds
