HIIT alternatives

Hey guys,

I've been doing HIIT 3x a week and the results are absolutely tremendous. However with the recent snow fall... the track that i run at is starting to get slippery and dangerous.

I was wondering what other alternatives you guys use for HIIT?

My HIIT routine usually goes like :

30 sec maximum sprint
1 minute slow jog/fast walk

Continue for 15 min.

There isn't really a long stretch of road where i can continue sprinting for 30 secs so that's out of the question. I don't have a stationary bike or a threadmill at home either so i'm out of luck there. The only other alternatives i can think of are jump ropes but i'm pretty bad at it lol. Any suggestions?

You can try HIIT or the tabata protocol with burpees, jump lunges, push ups, etc.

The harder I lift and the more I eat, the better my genetics seem to get.
