Happy Wednesday and April!
I am still battling my illness from the last post, and it has been so bad, that just when I think that I am on the mend and try to exert myself, I end up sick again.
So, I’ve been going, even more, stir crazy than the last time I posted. In fact, I think that I only left my apartment about two times last week. And what’s more, it was decent and sunny here in Glasgow.
C’est la vie.
Because I’ve been feeling so crummy, I have been spending a lot of time putting together workouts to jump back into once I can get my workout on again!
I am a big fan of HIIT and strength workouts. I love that they give so many great benefits the heart rate up and also incorporate quick circuits with resistance training and bodyweight movements. Combining HIIT and strength is a great way to get an excellent workout in anywhere from 10-30 minutes.
Who doesn’t have time for that, right?
This workout includes:
- 3-minute warmup (treadmill, dynamic movements, etc.)
- Four 5-minute HIIT circuits
- 2 moves per circuit
- 1 minute of rest between circuits
- 2-minute cool down including static stretching
You will need:
- A mat
- Set of dumbbells ranging from 3-15 lbs
- Interval Timer
