Happy Monday everyone! Today I have for you guys a HIIT workout that doesn’t require any kind of plyometric work for those who might have bad lower body joints, injuries, or just general areas of pain. My favorite way to get in some interval training with minimal lower body work is using the battleropes (if they’re available at your gym).
It has been waaayy too long since I got a post up, life has been hectic lately! I wanted to get at least something up on the blog so I decided to share my upper body workout from this past week. It’s a mix of some strength as well as a dash of HIIT for some extra cardio since I’m doing a small cut right now. I like doing workout this way because, well, I don’t like cardio haha! So it’s like a sneaky way for me to work some cardio in.
Just because you’re traveling doesn’t always mean you’re out of luck and have to skip a workout. There’s plenty that you can do with just your bodyweight and zero equipment to work up a sweat! Here’s one that I put together over the weekend when I was away for my church’s retreat.
AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) in 25 minutes:
10 jump squats
10 ice skaters
10 high knees
10 plyo tricep dips (or regular)
10 rocket leg launchers (per leg)
10 power skips (per leg)
I took breaks as needed but tried to keep them minimal to just grabbing a drink of water or taking a few seconds to catch my breath before starting the next round. It was killer and I worked up SUCH a sweat! I had to crank up the air conditioner in the room maybe two rounds in because I was already that sweaty.
If you try out the workout let me know what you think!
So I’ve decided to do something a little different this month where I share workout that’s a particular favorite of mine, and then continue on a monthly basis. I’m trying not to be biased and make sure I don’t do all leg workouts haha! But I’ve actually enjoyed this workout that I’m sharing today and surprisingly it’s upper body! I’ve liked it so much that this is the third week in a row that I’ve done it except I add in more reps or weight or both to account for an increase in volume. It was one of those workouts where I was inwardly cursing myself and wondering if I enjoy torturing myself haha! It’s a tough one but effective for sure.
Good morning everyone! I have a new workout to share with you guys that I did the other day after my run. I was short on time Saturday morning since I was going bridesmaid dress shopping with my friends and knew I’d be gone all day. I wanted to give Layla some exercise since I’d be gone so long so I took her for a short run first and then did a quick HIIT circuit to give me the most bang for my buck. HIIT is one of my favorite go-to’s when I’m short on time because you don’t need much of it to be effective! I only had about 30 minutes total to do both so I first took Layla for a 1.5 mile run and then busted out 15 minutes of some plyometrics.
