Day 25 of 25 Days of Fit with HIIT

After a slight delay it’s finally here.. the last workout and a new laptop!

I’m sharing one of my personal favorite types of workouts. You’ve seen this format before – short, intense bursts of both cardio & strength training.

You can substitute the running for other types of cardio. The .25 mile usually takes be about a minute and a half at a fairly intense pace (think 7 on a scale of 10) so you could try rowing for a minute, biking for 2 minutes or even a minute of jump rope or burpees.

I did not include weights for the kettlebell & dumbbell movements but you should select relatively heavy weight for these movements. You want to fight for the last couple reps on each set (but maintain good form).

Kick it up a notch: Go for 4 rounds of each set and change the cardio to 30 second sprints (a 9 or 10/10 on pace).

Tone it down a little: Try just 1 or 2 rounds per set. You could also try just 1 cardio burst followed by 3 rounds of the strength moves. You could also select a lighter weight and slow down your cardio.
