It’s time you try a 10-minute HIIT workout. High-intensity interval training is efficient, it burns more fat, you rarely need any equipment, it increases your metabolism, this type of training can be done anywhere and it will make you sweat. If you have 10 minutes to spare (who doesn’t?) in your day, try these 10-minute HIIT workouts to burn that pesky layer of fat and feel stronger faster. You won’t get bored with these quick and effective workouts!

1 Emi Wong’s 10-minute full body HIIT workout

“A short workout is better than no workout.” Emi Wong will convince you to do her workout at least once a week to get abs like hers. Her full body HIIT workout consists of 10 exercises that last 45 seconds each: jumping jacks, side plank rotation, burpees, commandos, half burpees, crossover reverse lunges, jump squats, opposite arm & leg raises, push-ups and speed skaters. You only need some workout gear and a mat, and you’re ready!


2 Astrid Swan’s 10-minute HIIT workout

Butt kicks, burpee spins, diamond clicks, these foreign sounding exercises are intense and will make you sweat. Celebrity trainer Astrid McGuire created a workout routine using only your body weight to get you moving and burning calories. Her cool down at the end is a nice additional touch and you’ll definitely show off some of these moves to your family and friends.


3 10 min HIIT cardio workout for fat loss

Love working out with your significant other? Make a competition out of it with this 10-minute workout and get your couple moving. This video does require some dumbbells but don’t worry, if you don’t have any at home you can always use household objects like canned foods or dried rice and beans in containers. Follow either Claudia or Kozak depending on you’re comfortable doing.


4 10 minute home HIIT

The Lean Machines’ 20 seconds of workout and 10 seconds of rest HIIT session is a fat-burning, fast and easy to follow video you’ll be happy to follow. All the exercises are straightforward and don’t require you to rewind the video 5 times to make sure you’re doing the exercises properly. Squats, lunges, push-ups, V ups, these are all exercises you’ve seen before.


5 10 minute HIIT cardio workout for home

Quite different from the previous videos, Group HIIT’s 10-minute workout only has 4 cardio focused moves:  half burpees, X jumps, mountain climbers and pencil jacks that last 30 seconds each. You have 20 seconds of rest between each exercise and you do them 3 times. This is a great video for beginners or people who aren’t used to HIIT workouts since all the exercises are shown before you start doing them yourself.


6 Home HIIT workout

Lucy Wyndham-Read gets you moving with her 10-minute HIIT workout. Choose between her modified or full position moves, whatever makes you the most comfortable. Jumping jacks, heel kicks, squats, lunges, Lucy explains every exercise in great detail to make sure you are following her moves properly.


7 10 minute 120 calorie burning HIIT workout

These 6 total body exercises using just your body weight will work out your abs, obliques, shoulders, biceps, triceps, hamstrings, glutes, quads, and calves. Each exercise will be performed for 10 reps but beware! There are no rests in this 10-minute HIIT video so if you need a drink of water or a few minutes to rest, pause the video so you don’t miss any moves. All you need is your workout clothes and a mat and some music blasting, of course!


8 Beginner HIIT

Beginners, this is your chance to shine. Learn the ins and outs of HIIT with this easy to follow video. Lindsay Brin will walk you through all the exercises and also includes a fun warm-up in case you haven’t thought of warming up your muscles before starting the workout. There are 10 exercises to do and Lindsay explains the moves, you feel as though she’s right there with you. This is also a great workout for new moms.
