The HIIT Walking Workout

Try this HIIT walking workout to intensify your daily walks. This walking routine will help you burn more calories and improve your cardiovascular system!

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) seems to be all everyone is talking about. But what do you do if you can’t do sprints or some of those crazy plyometric exercises everyone else is doing?

I posted a low impact HIIT cardio workout video a few weeks ago. If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend checking it out! That workout is also a great way to make HIIT knee-friendly. Another way to simplify HIIT is by walking!

Get on the treadmill, stair master, or head outside for your walking HIIT workout. This simple workout will only take 20-minutes long, which is all you need for HIIT.
