High-intensity interval training (HIIT)

Any exercise can be a form of HIIT, if it follows a specific regimen where you vary your speeds and intensity when doing it.
Example:

  • Jogging lightly for three minutes.
  • Pushing yourself harder for a minute (run or sprint).
  • Repeating this cycle 4 more times.

    Your goals with home exercising

    Consider what you're trying to achieve.

    • If your goal is general health and well-being, a pleasant stroll is sufficient.
    • If you want to lift heavy weights, there isn't a minimalist setup that can replicate a barbell. While a barbell and weight plates would let you do almost everything, you need quite a bit of room to use them, ideally an outdoor area or a garage.
