Top 10 High-Intensity Workouts Designed Purely for Women
Today you will learn 10 High-Intensity Workouts Designed Purely for Women.
A daily jog/walk is a pretty standard workout plan for women everywhere. While it has its benefits, it doesn’t fulfil the fitness requirements of your body. It doesn’t burn fat as effectively as high-intensity workouts.
High-intensity workouts are designed to take less time and exercise different muscle groups together.
The biggest benefit of high-intensity workouts is that they specifically target the fat in your body and burn it quicker than any other workout routine. You will be switching between low to high-intensity exercise routines in these workouts, which is considered by many to be more beneficial than maintaining the same level of intensity in your exercises.

1. Sprint plus Walk
This one is simple enough, do a little warm-up and stretch session then walk for 30 seconds followed by a 30 second dead sprint. You should do about 6-10 reps.
By the third sprint and walk rep, you will feel the intensity in your whole body.
And intensity here means you will feel dead tired.
After a few days of the workout, you can increase the reps or increase the time of the sprints. You can also try the routine on a steep hill. Women of all ages can benefit from this workout by adjusting the intensity to what they can manage.
2. Jog plus Sprint
If you want to graduate from the walk and sprint workout, you can give the job and sprint workout a try. Follow the same routine as mentioned above, but instead of walking you will jogging after the 30 second of sprinting.
