4-Minute HIIT Workout For Long, Lean Legs

Watch the video above for a short, killer leg workout, or follow along with the detailed gifs below! All you need is a clock or interval timer so you can track how long you're performing each exercise. HIIT workouts consist of 20 seconds of intense exercise followed by 10 seconds of active recovery. I'll walk you through it — let's get started!

1. Squat With Inner Thigh Click (20 seconds)

Lower into a deep squat. When you jump up, bring your inner thighs together (so they touch) and click your heels together. When your fit hit the ground, sink back into that deep squat. Repeat this exercise for 20 seconds.

Bend your leg into a 90-degree angle lunge. When you bring your leg up, jump so both feet are off the floor, and raise one leg to a 90-degree angle before returning to the lunge position. Repeat on one side for 20 seconds.

Don't just stand there, boxer shuffle! Repeat for 10 seconds. Then, return to exercise #1, the squat with inner thigh click and run through the exercise again (switching legs on the reverse lunge). Perform each exercise four times for a killer leg workout!
