The HIIT Walking Workout

High Intensity Interval Training seems to be all everyone is talking about. But what do you do if you can’t do sprints or some of those crazy exercises everyone else is doing? The answer is, you walk!

You may have seen the Low Impact HIIT workout I posted two weeks ago, but if you didn’t go back and try it out. That workout is one solution to the “how do I make HIIT workouts more do-able” question. But today I wanted to give you another answer.

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


Warm-up: 3-minutes

After taking a few minutes to stretch, walk at a moderate pace for 3 minutes. This should get your heart rate up and make your legs feel nice and warm.

Workout: 15-minutes

Walk as fast as you can for 30-seconds

Walk at a recovery pace similar to your warm-up for 1-minute

Repeat 10 times

Cool down: 2-minutes

Walk at a casual pace for 2-minutes followed by some stretches
