Course Description

In this course you will learn high intensity interval training which is a special type of training used by many professional athletes, and people like firefighters whose jobs depend on them to be fit.

High intensity interval training (sometimes called HIIT) is what the popular Crossfit exercise system is based on. Crossfit is the latest popular exercise trend, and it is based on what we will teach you in this course! So go ahead and sign up, and begin having some awesome high intensity workouts.

High intensity interval training (sometimes called HIIT) works all the major muscle groups of your body while at the same giving you a great aerobic exercise because you are constantly out of breath. That way, in just 30 minutes you have the equivalent of a jog and a weight training exercise.

Unlike regular dumbbell-based exercise, you don't sit around and waste time between repetitions and sets. Instead, you choose your 5 to 7 exercises and rapidly go through them. Once you are done with all of them, you start doing them again, only next time with fewer repetitions. And you keep going for a few cycles of all the exercises.

Curriculum

Section 1: Course and instructor introduction
00:41

Brief introduction to our high intensity interval training online course. We packed this class with over 40 different exercises common in high intensity interval training exercise routines to give you a large variety of exercises to choose from. That will continue to keep it fun for you, and also help you work on the muscles that you want to train and sculpt.

01:22

In this part of the class I explain why high intensity interval training (HIIT) is effective, and how it works your entire body and all the muscle groups while also giving you a cardio workout.

03:41

In this part of the online class I explain how you should structure your workouts in order to keep them fun, fresh, but also effective.

05:26

This part of the course is a more thorough explanation of how to structure your high intensity interval training exercise routines to get the most out of all the exercises posted in this online class.

Section 2: Medicine ball exercises
00:25

In this part of the class we will show you different exercises you can do with the medicine ball. The medicine ball is great because you can add it as weight resistance to many exercises in your routine. It adds weight but is still soft so if it falls it won't hurt you or injure you, and because it is round, it is easy to grip almost no matter what position your body is in. The medicine ball can be found at any gym if you don't have a medicine ball at home.

01:03

Ball slams can be added to just about any exercise routine, and in this part of the high intensity interval class we show you how to add ball slams to your HIIT workout.

00:28

This exercise is the side to side jumps while holding the medicine ball. It is a cardio workout that also helps to improve your balance, and arm strength.

00:36

In this part of the class we show you how to do the alternating lunges with the medicine ball. This is another great exercise that can be added to a make a good high intensity interval training exercise routine. It works your legs, your arms, and your core because of the twisting. This exercise also helps you improve your balance, and it is also part of the cardio workout.

00:38

This tutorial shows you how to make your squats more challenging by adding the medicine ball to the exercise. This is another good high intensity interval training element you can add because again, it works most of your busy (legs, arms, and a little bit of your core for balance).

00:23

This is another exercise that helps you improve your balance and gives you an aerobic workout which is part of your cardio. It also helps you work on your quickness and agility so if you play a sport that needs you to be quicker and faster, adding skater hops to your high intensity interval training (HIIT) routine will help you achieve that. And adding the medicine ball to this exercise will help you make it more challenging and also work your arm muscles.

00:24

Mountain climbers are a good exercise to add to your high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine because it is another one of those drills that work your arm muscles, shoulders, legs and core for stability.

00:30

The Russian twist is another great drill to add to your high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine. The Russian twist works your abs and your arms.

00:34

These variations of the sit-up are very good to add to your high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine.

They help to isolate your ab muscles, and get you closer to that 6-pack of abs that everyone is after.

Section 3: Kettle bell exercises
00:40

In this part of the class we show you different kettle bell exercises that you can add to your high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine. Usually kettle bells help to work your arms, legs (because there is often some form of the squat within many of the drills) and core because you need to keep your body stable in order to properly do the kettle bell drills. Most kettle bell drills typically help to make you stronger.

01:01

Basic kettle bell swings help to make your arms stronger, and also work your legs and core. This is a good high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise because once again, it works your entire body, and if you take a heavy enough kettle bell, you will certainly get pretty tired by the end of the set. Kettle bell swings also help to improve your explosiveness because of the hip thrust that goes into every repetition.

00:36

Single arm kettle bell swings are similar to the double arm kettle bell swings. This is another good drill to add to your high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine.

01:02

Goblet squats include the kettle bells for resistance. You can use any weight here, and replace the kettle bell with the medicine ball or a simple dumbbell or any other object that has the weight that would give your squats a good amount of extra resistance.

Section 4: Jump rope exercises
00:10

In this part of the class, you will learn a few drills you can do with the jump rope that you can add to your high intensity interval fitness (HIIT) exercise routine. The jump rope is a very cheap piece of equipment that you can buy, and if you don't want to buy a jump rope, just about any gym has a jump rope that you can use as a part of the class.

01:26

In this part of the class you will see a few examples of different drill variations that you can do with the jump rope. These jump rope drills are very good as a part of your warmup, or as a part of your high intensity interval fitness (HIIT) exercise routine once you are ready for the more challenging variations of the drills.

00:28

Another example of the jump rope that is hopefully easier for beginners to pick up.

Section 5: Exercise ball routines
00:13

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class, Joe shows different drills you can do with the exercise ball. The exercise ball is another piece of fitness equipment that is very affordable. If it is too bulky for you to keep at home, every local gym has a bunch of exercise balls so it is a very accessible type of equipment.

00:54

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class you will learn how to do the back raises drill. It is a good drill to strengthen your core.

00:47

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class we show you how to do the popular plank drill, and make it more difficult by putting your feet on the exercise ball. This forces you to exert even more energy keeping your balance, and gives you an even better core and strengthening workout.

00:22

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class Joe explains how to make your sit-ups more difficult by using the exercise ball. As you can see, the exercise ball helps you modify many of the common exercises to make them much more challenging, and add a lot of intensity to your workout.

00:18

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class you learn how to train your hamstrings. The hamstring muscle is an important one, but the hamstring is a little bit difficult to train because it isn't easy to isolate. With this drill you will learn to strengthen and tone your hamstrings which will help you be quicker, faster, more agile and generally have stronger leg muscles.

00:18

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class you learn how to work your hamstrings and your abs at the same time with the reverse crunch. The reverse crunch with the exercise ball is a very good drill to add to your HIIT routine.

01:55

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class you learn advanced drills and routines that you can do with the exercise ball. These are pretty difficult drills, especially if you extend the amount of time or repetitions for which you do them. They are certain to get you out of breath.

Section 6: Routines with dumbbells
01:04

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class you will learn exercises you can do with the dumbbells. Dumbbells are another very affordable piece of exercise equipment. If you want to keep your dumbbells at home, they can be easily kept under a bed or in some corner where they don't take up too much room. Of course, if you keep the dumbbells hidden, maybe sure you don't neglect them and forget to do the exercises that you can do with dumbbells. If you don't want to buy and keep dumbbells at home, they are one of the most common pieces of equipment at any gym so you can use them there.

00:18

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class, you will learn how to use drills that we already learned like basic squats or lunges, but now you can make them more challenging by adding weight resistance with dumbbells. Of course, for many of these drills you can also add weight by using the medicine ball as well although since dumbbells typically come in more weight choices, you have more options for how much weight you will add for resistance.

00:28

In this tutorial of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class, Joe shows us how to take basic exercises and basic weights, and make them into more aerobic and cardio drills than they are in their more common form. This way you will get a big workout and really sweat as though you are running. This will get your heart rate up, and give you a great cardio workout while building upper body muscles and strength at the same time.

00:51

In this part of our high intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise routine class, Joe gives tips for how to make additional advanced variations of various drills even more difficult by using dumbbells to add weight resistance to the movements you will be doing.

00:30

What you can do with dumbbells to give yourself a full body workout that builds strength and cardio.
