We have a host of options that we can incorporate into our day-to-day life to keep us in shape. However, not everyone has the time to go to a gym. If you have a bicycle or treadmill at home, I’ll teach you how to do practical training at home that will get you in shape in a two-for-three.
The HITT, your best ally
I’ll start by telling you that HIIT is not the same as crossfit. The cross handles different types of exercises. These exercises practiced in high-intensity intervals are known as HITT. In the HITT the exercises last seconds and there is a rest period, which in the cross varies depending on the training. The great thing about these types of training is that both are brief and can be practiced in the comfort of your home.
HITT on the treadmill
If you have a treadmill or a bicycle at home it will be very easy to practice these intervals. Start with 30-second sessions at maximum power after the intensity drops and rest for a few minutes. Remember that to make these intervals you will need to stretch before. Only 5 minutes of high intensity is needed. If you do not want to just run or pedal. I recommend you make a circuit of:
- Mountain climber for 30 seconds rests 15 seconds.
- Squats for 30 seconds rest 15 seconds
- Abdominals for 30 seconds and rest 15 seconds.
- Burpees for 30 seconds and rests 15 seconds.
- Climb on your treadmill or your bike and run 1 minute to everything you can. Rest for 2 minutes and start again.
Starting exercise at home requires a mind at peace. Make yourself space so you can have things in order. If you are going to get material to work at home, do not forget to have a yoga mat, a pair of dumbbells and, if possible, a jump rope. It is super effective. The crossfit and HITT at home can be a blessing if done consistently.
