Post Thanksgiving HIIT workout

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend!

My heart is still so full with love & gratitude for all the I have!
i truly am one blessed girl!

on top of feeling full of gratitude,
i am also feeling full from all the yummy food I ate!

so to burn off all that deliciousness I am sure we all indulged in,
I have a full body HIIT workout for you to try!

like i have said before, i am no professional, this is just what works for me, and maybe it will work for you too!

if you are just starting to work out I recommend getting your cardio up before starting HIIT workouts!

 but if you are a ready for a challenge, this is perfect for you!

make sure you get a good warm up before you start..
i normally jog on the treadmill until I'm warm & stretch for a bit too.

okay here is how it works!

  • set your timer for five minutes, complete the circuit as many times as you can before the timer goes off-- if you really want to push yourself, don't rest between circuits, or limit your rest period to 30 seconds
  • alternate circuits 3x or more (will take 30 minutes) if you want more of a challenge, do as many as you can!
  • try not to stop unless it's the rest period, but if you have to take a break make sure you keep moving-- it's important to keep your heart rate up
  • during the one minute rest period, drink water
  • when you are finished make sure you stretch, continue drinking water, & eat something!
if you have any questions, feel free to ask me!
i am happy to answer anything & help in any way i can!

let me know if you try it :)
