I love a HIIT workout. It boosts my metabolism, increases my VO2 max so I can work harder for longer, and does that in a relatively small amount of time. Adding an element of resistance training to a HIIT session is even better, improving my muscular endurance too. 

I went on the hunt for a HIIT workout with a strength component—something that would work my whole body, but with slightly more emphasis on strengthening my legs— and came back with this routine from personal trainer Bradley Simmonds. I also didn’t have too long to spend in the gym, so the fact that it was 12 minutes long was ideal.
