    Workout help!

    Guys I need your help!
    Currently, I can't do my full workout plan (long running with callisthenics and Muay Thai), because I am in the army (in Greece it's mandatory and we don't have a daily exercise routine), so I have to "cheat" some morning time (45-50') doing circuit training (5' jumping rope, 15 jumping squats, 25 push ups, 1' high knees, 1' shadowboxing, 1' rest) and repeat for a total of 4 cycles.
    Is it bad if I do it every day ( I am not exhausted and I don't see any decline in form or efficiency)... If I have calculated correctly, I burn about 400-500 kcals from it alone. Does body adapt over time and burn less? What other HIIT can I do to feel the same burn (I really need it!!!) and have my body be in constant "adaptive" phase?
    Thanks a lot!!!

    As the body streamlines its processes the caloric burn does lessen, but this isn't something you need to worry about, really. (And I'm not sure if your calculations are maybe based on numbers that assume you're adapted already, meaning you simply burn more calories right now than you calculated.)

    HIIT will always feel difficult and there is no inherent benefit in always being in the adaptive phase.

      Noen but is it normal that I never feel exhausted, even though every one I work out with, can't keep up with me, meaning I give 100%...

        Is it normal to be hella fit and in shape? No. Is that bad? Also no.

        There are marathon runners who are quicker on foot than me on my bicycle.

        Increase your intensity if you want, but it seems to me you're already at a very good level of fitness for this particular exercise.
