4-Week Fat-Burning HIIT Workouts (At Home)

Most people believe spending endless hours a week on cardio exercises is the fastest way to achieve body transformation. However, the fact is that you can burn fat and boost your fitness quicker by doing HIIT workouts at home.

4-Week HIIT Workouts at Home

While moderate-intensity exercise generally improves body weight and body fat composition, it doesn’t significantly reduce body fat as much as high-intensity interval training (HIIT) [1].

According to a 2010 study, you can lose significant weight and fat by doing HIIT and aerobic exercises rather than limiting yourself to resistance training only.

If shedding fat is your goal, including HIIT workouts at home in your fitness plan is advisable.

Apart from allowing you to exercise in the shortest time possible and burning the most calories, HIIT is effective at improving heart health and endurance [2].

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) saves time and boosts metabolism. What makes HIIT workout effective as a fat burning workout is that it produces excess post-oxygen consumption, (EPOC). Try this free fat burring HIIT workout

How often should you do HIIT?

While High-intensity interval training workouts have incredible benefits, there are also risks associated with doing too much. 

HIIT sessions should not be performed more than three times a week to avoid over-training and fatigue. You can do moderate or low-intensity training every other day for the rest of the week.

It is exactly this that you will see in this 4-week at-home HIIT workout routine. You will start each week with one day of HIIT, followed by a rest day, then another HIIT day.

On the 4th day of the week, you’ll do moderate workouts followed by another HIIT day. The last two days of the week will include a low-intensity workout and a complete rest day.

Here is what this HIIT workout will look like:

  • Monday HIIT
  • Tuesday Rest
  • Wednesday HIIT
  • Thursday Moderate intensity
  • Friday HIIT
  • Saturday Low intensity
  • Sunday Rest
