Hey friends, it’s time for a workout! I haven’t posted a ton of workouts lately since I have been only teaching yoga these days and I usually post my class plans for workouts here. But since I’ve still been personal training and doing plenty of my own workouts, I’ve been itching to get more out to you guys!

A while ago I subbed several times for a HIIT/cardio class and I put together this workout for one of our classes. This is a variation of my first HIIT the Weights Workout I posted a while back.

This workout is such a great way to get your cardio and strength into one workout! I love this workout format so I’ve used it several times for different fitness classes over the last couple years and students seem to like it.

Here’s a key for the workout:

  • DB = Dumbbell (you can use a barbell for most of these exercises too)
  • W = weights/strength
  • C = cardio
  • 30/30/20 = 30 seconds strength, 30 seconds cardio, 20 seconds rest

This HIIT the Weights workouts are easy to customize: you can use bodyweight strength exercises instead of exercises with weights or you can use resistance bands. You can do more rounds for an advanced exerciser or 1 or 2 rounds for a beginner. You can even increase the work intervals if you want! The sky’s the limit here.

Here are the exercises in the workout:
