Weekend HIIT

Yes, it may be the weekend, but it doesn’t mean it’s time to slack off with your workout.  Get in, get out and get fit with a short, but challenging high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout.  It’ll leave you looking – and feeling – good for the weekend.

Warm Up:

5 minutes on the track, the treadmill or any cardio to get your heart going and a light sweat.

Balance Work:

Always add an element of balance into your daily workouts.  Balance on right foot for up to 30 seconds, then left. Do this three times.

You'll need kettlebells and wall balls for this HIIT.  You can sub in dumbbells or medicine ball if needed.

HIIT:

30 Wall Balls

25 Kettlebell Swings

20 Pushups

15 Kettlebell Upright Rows

10 Burpees

5 Pull ups

1 V-sit hold (60 seconds)

**If you gym has stairs, run them twice.  If no stairs run in place or jump rope for 2 minutes**

Keep your body moving! Take a rest in between sets if needed, but try to cycle through all seven sets – 5 rounds – with little stopping in 30-40 minutes.  And remember…FORM over speed.

Cool down:

Foam roll and static stretching.
