20 HIIT Workouts That Prove You Don't Need to Do Burpees to Get Seriously Sweaty
If you find yourself dreading HIIT workouts, chances are it's actually the burpees you're trying to avoid. At least that's been the case for me, ever since I tried to do HIIT in my second-story apartment. To avoid shaking the ceiling of my downstairs neighbor's place, I had no choice but to skip the sets of burpees. But without all the jumping up and down, I felt like I wasn't getting nearly as good of a workout. Thus began my search for burpee-less HIIT workouts — and now, I'm obsessed.
The truth is, if you want a full-body workout that's highly effective for fat loss and muscle building, you can get it without doing a single burpee (and you'll feel just as accomplished afterward). Whether you live in an upper-floor apartment like me, you're a HIIT beginner, you have lower back pain or knee issues, or you simply hate burpees, you're bound to find your next HIIT workout on this list.
