Healthista has teamed up with David Marshall, owner of Royal Docks CrossFit to bring you a warm up sequence for a HIIT workout to raise your body temperature, increase your heart rate and sharpen your attention for a brilliant workout

Love HIIT workouts? David Marshall, owner of Royal Docks CrossFit shows you how to do an easy warm up before a high intensity interval workout. Warming up before your workout is essential to prevent injury and get your body ready for moves found in HIIT workouts.

David uses kettlebells for swings and goblet squats then body weight for dynamic movements that are essential for getting your body warmed up. If you don’t have a kettle bell, use a dumbbell or only your own body weight.
