The actual list doesn’t have to just stop at 10. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of different interval exercises that you can do. In my opinion, bodyweight exercises are some of the best exercises that you can include in your interval fitness training workouts.
This is because bodyweight exercises can be done absolutely anywhere, are usually very difficult and also are safe for anyone. You can really crank up a lot of bodyweight exercises by simply putting some extra weight into them. Then, they are not all bodyweight exercises anymore, but you get my point. Simply add some dumbbells or a medicine ball to your bodyweight squats. Or, you can add a weight belt to your bench dips or wide grip chin-ups. You can also add a kettlebell to your pushup exercise with the addition of rows at the end for a great workout!
List of Bodyweight Interval Exercises:
- Single Leg Squats

One of the main points I am trying to get across to you is not to spend all your time focusing on what’s in your workout but to spend much more time focusing on adding intensity to your workout. The real key is intensity. That’s what is going to bring you some real results. The goal of interval training is to burn calories and build muscle. This is what makes it so effective and far more effective than normal cardio. In fact, if you add the intensity needed to your interval training moves, you can burn more calories and be done with your workout in half the time. It’s really a great training technique!
