We’ve got a new Saturday tradition. Luckily for me, it helps me shape up for summer. Unlucky for my boyfriend, it involves cardio.
Once again, we ventured off to the gym and tried another fast paced workout, otherwise knows as high intensity interval training or HIIT. (See last week’s workout here!)
These intense HIIT workouts are proven to shed tons of calories in a short amount of time. Best of all, the workout keeps you alternating between exercises which keeps things interesting. Definitely beats spending your time at the gym on repetitive cardio machines.
So grab a partner, a friend or a family member and try this workout to get summer ready!
Warm-up: Do a light stretch and at least 15 minutes of cardio. This can include a jog, bike or eliptical. For an extra sweaty start, try the stair-master!
