By now, everyone is well aware of how important exercise is. Even if you're not looking to get completely ripped and shredded, having a regular exercise regimen can keep you healthy for years to come. 

The amount of time and energy that it takes to physically get to the gym and the lack of home workout equipment are two frequent excuses used by people who think they don't have the time or resources to exercise regularly. 

Here at ArtBUFF, we like to encourage readers to kill the excuses and take action, especially when it comes to bettering themselves and their lives. These hardcore workouts are a great way to start doing that right now!

Intense, hardcore, and highly effective, these high intensity workouts can be done in your living room, your basement, and even your driveway with as little as your body and some serious determination. So what are you waiting for? It's time to get that butt in gear! 

1. 15 Minute Pyramid HIIT Workout

This video isn't afraid to jump straight in. No minutes of talking, no fancy intros, not even a specifically planned warmup. It requires you to be stretched and ready to work your butt off from the moment you start it. 

15-minutes of going up and down in reps, doing a dumber of different highly intensive exercises, all of which benefit different parts of your body, easily turn this video into a regular favorite. 

2. Train Insane HIIT Workout

Coming in at less than 10 minutes, this video is definitely on the shorter side, but it's totally meant to be that way. Whether you decide to use this workout as a more intensive workout or repeat it for multiple sets, it is super beneficial. 

The featured exercises include things like plank jacks, split lunge jumps, and burpees, and while all of them are pilates inspired, they are no less intense. 

3. 25 Minute Hyper Yoga HIIT Workout

Yoga and HIIT are sometimes thought of as two ends to a very long spectrum when it comes to exercise, but this workout manages to blend them perfectly and effectively. 

Classic yoga moves are transformed into intense exercises that workout everything from the legs, to the arms, to that core. 

4. 10 Minute Fat Melting HIIT Bodyweight Workout

Everyone needs at least one workout that specifically targets fat burning on their roster. And this HIIT bodyweight workout does just that in only around 10 minutes. 

Hardcore "walking planks with a jackknife twist" are combined with things like mountain climbers and pushups to ensure that you and your body get the most out of your HIIT experience. 

5. HIIT Cardio Workout

Created specifically for those living and working in tight spaces, this workout can be done sans equipment and in even the tightest rooms in your house. About 10 minutes of HIIT cardio makes this workout ideal for those days when you're looking for something a little lighter but still effective. 

6. 33 Minute HIIT For Endurance & Total Body Toning

This video has everything you need! A great cardio warmup, an interactive screen, active recovery times, and one of the best HIIT body toning workouts you will ever complete. 

The knee highs and mountain climbers included in this workout may be old school but they get some exciting new spins too!

7. 15 Minute Plyo HIIT Workout

Plyo, also known as jump training, is an amazing technique used for increasing power and strength while also giving your muscles one crazy workout. 

While the trainer in this video does use a jumprope for a small portion of the workout, she gives clear and concise alternatives for those that don't have access to one, making this video just as helpful as it is intensive. 

8. Fat Melting HIIT Workout

Cardio is more than just running on that old treadmill until your legs fall off. Using repetitions and circuits, this HIIT workout isn't timed but that doesn't mean it isn't still badass. 

Exercises like star jumps, fly jacks, and rear lunges are utilized to help burn fat in as little as 15 minutes a day. 

9. 20 Minute HIIT Workout Boot Camp

The word "bootcamp" definitely doesn't tend to signify anything easy, and this video is no different. 

Super intense spider jumps and supine legs are done at high reps and while a couple of the moves in this video use dumb bells at certain points, cutting them out won't affect the outcome much. 

10. 15 Minute Full Body Shred HIIT Workout

You don't need to do this workout on the roof of your building for it to be effective, but we're sure it doesn't hurt! 

This is 15 Minutes of exercises targeting the core, the legs, and the lower back. This routine will seriously increase that heart rate and get you working up a great sweat!
