AT-HOME Lower Body HIIT Workout

Cardio/HIITWhitney CarlsonComment

With everything that has been going on in our lives lately it has been hard to get into the gym on a consistent basis. I normally never workout at home but lately that has been my only option! We have a very small area with gym equipment that is limited to an elliptical, a few sets of weights, and a bench.

Last week a package from PUMA arrived and it came on one of the days that I was going to workout at home so I was super excited! They sent me their Ignite XT training shoe and some clothing items. I instantly fell in love.

I decided to put the clothing and shoes to the test with a quick HIIT leg workout using only a bench and dumbbells. It actually turned out to be a great workout so I wanted to share it with you!

You could even do the workout without weights and if you don't have a bench use any sort of stable platform that you have available.

The PUMA Ignite XT is a training shoe, not a running shoe. I was very pleased with how well it preformed during my HIIT training. I have honestly never tried a pure training shoe as most shoes that I wear are running shoes. I think I might be sold on these though! I usually incorporate short cardio bursts in between my workout sets so these are perfect for that. Some of the features of the shoe include enhanced traction, support, agility and energy return. I could definitely tell that this was a great training shoe and the ignite foam that offers rebound cushioning was perfect for HIIT training. The clothing was great too because it was the perfect thickness. I can't stand it when gym clothes are really thick and make me sweat before I even start working out! Plus, the shirt, bra, and capris are super cute too!

Although I do prefer going to the gym, sometimes home workouts are just as good - if not better! Just like I had to make the best of what I had and the time I had, you can too! Make a contract with yourself that #nomatterwhat you will try to be better than you were yesterday. Maybe that means squeezing your workout in even if you don't think you have time or just going for a walk during your lunch instead of sitting at your desk. Believe in yourself and you will do amazing things!
