5 Best HIIT Workouts for Weight Loss

Take a split stance to begin. Drop into a squat, then blast upward, adjusting your posture in midair.

1. Alternating Split Squat Jumps

Quickly switch between the two and maximize your vertical leap with each.

Position your hands shoulder-width apart and get into a pushup. Don't slouch or let your hips drop; instead, keep a flat lower back.

2. Plyometric Pushups

As you get lower, keep your elbows in tight to your body. Explosively push yourself up from the ground so that your arms are in the air.

Keep your feet slightly turned out from your hips and your arms at your sides.

3. Jump Squats 

Put your hands up in the air over your head. Spread your knees, sit back, and squat.

Position yourself in a deadlift and place the kettlebell in front of you.

4. Kettlebell Swings 

Finally, with the kettlebell between your legs, do a powerful forward hip thrust. Lift the kettlebell above your head and place it on a rack. Repeat.

Hold the end of a single dumbbell with both hands, chest up, elbows tucked in.

5. Goblet Squats

Keep your feet hip-width apart and your shoulders squared off. Sitting backward with your knees apart is the starting position for this exercise.
