HIIT is seriously effective at burning fat – we know that! (If you don’t, read this)

But HIIT doesn’t have to be limited to sprints on the treadmill, rowing machine or step master – oh no!

You can perform HIIT anywhere!

This explosive HIIT workout can be done anywhere with a set of stairs. That makes it a perfect home HIIT workout (unless you have a bungalow).

You could also do this one out in the street (just find the a ledge or set of steps to jump up), in a hotel or at the gym.

This means you never have to miss a cardio session again!

And what’s more, HIIT is so efficient it means you can smash out an effective cardio workout in just 10 minutes, so there’s no need to spend hours on the treadmill, cross trainer or exercise bike.

Give this one a go and, as always, don’t forget to let us know how you got on via Twitter (@TrainEatGain).
