Bless you, morning light, for making it look like I almost have an ab. *almost*

Today was HARD. My mood has been low. To be honest, my Mother’s Day sucked and I’ve been pouting. My family did not plan ahead and *forgot*. How dumb is that? I know they love me and I wanted them to do something they thought up on their own. It’s over now and I’m moving on. No more pouting.

Like I said, today’s workout was really hard. I had an awful time controlling my breathing, for whatever reason. 2 miles of sprint intervals, an Ab circuit, and all my PT exercises. I did increase my speed on my sprints today so I’m certain that had something to do with my lack of controlled breathing.
Off to stretch!

This week I want to talk a little bit about HIIT or high intensity interval training. HIIT is an enhanced form of interval training, which is an strategy used by alternating short periods of intense anaerobic (activity in which the body incurs an oxygen debt) exercise with less-intense recovery periods. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4–30 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning.

So for this week I’m going to post an HIIT workout for you all to try. Feel free to tell us how it went and if you really enjoy it, continue to stick with it! HIIT works in long week periods. So while the exercises are short, you’ll need to work out at least 6 days during the week.

Here’s the workout:

Warmup- Jog in place for 2 minutes/stretch

Circuit- Sprint in place (12 seconds)

March in place (18 seconds)

Burpees (12 seconds)

March in place (18 seconds)

Jumping jacks (12 seconds)

March in place (18 seconds)

High knees (12 seconds)

March in place (18 seconds)

Repeat this circuit 5 times. Make sure you stretch and cool down after you finish!
