Heavy Hitter HIIT Workout Video

We are going back to basics today. Lena asked if we could do a HIIT workout involving Jump Rope in between each exercise. Jump rope is an excellent form of cardio. If you don’t have a jump rope, you can do jumping jacks or high knees in between each exercise. We won’t be doing any combinations with this since we are doing jump rope. You don’t need much for this workout, just a jump rope, a good set of dumbbells, a medicine ball, sandbag and or a kettlebell. I also threw in a BOSU ball for those who have it, but you can do the exercises to the floor.  Remember to work at your fitness level and take breaks when you need to. The breakdown is below.
