I wanted to create a workout that you can grab quickly and easily…so here it is!
Below I’ve listed both cardio and strength exercises. The cool thing about this is that you can create any workout you choose from the list. If you’re looking for a cardio boost, choose 5 cardio exercise. Want to add in some strength? Great! Choose 3 cardio exercises and 2 strength. I do recommend that if you’re looking for the HIIT benefits (increased metabolism, increased energy, etc.), you’ll want to choose no less than 3 cardio exercises.
AND…if you want to do 10 minutes? Hey! The option is there! Choose 5 cardio and 5 strength! Choose 8 cardio and 2 strength! Woop! The world is your oyster (doing burpees!). 15 minutes? Yup, you can do that too! 20 minutes?! Okie dokie!
HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training, is defined as period of intense exercise followed by rest or active recover….repeated. Here are a few examples of how you can play with the timings of your workout:
45 seconds ON/15 seconds OFF
50 seconds ON/10 seconds OFF
Complete all exercises for 30 seconds, take 60 seconds off, repeat (that one would be 6 minutes long)
30 seconds ON/30 seconds OFF
But, listen up and listen up good! You need to ensure that when you’re ON, you’re giving it your all. HIGH INTENSITY. That means you need to push yourself so at the end of your “ON” cycle, you need the rest/active recovery. Push yourself, Mamas.
PUSH! DIG! DRIVE! ACHIEVE!! GOOOOOOOOOO!
Have fun, Mamas! And let me know how it goes!
