Burn, Baby! Burn!
In today’s society, we’re all so busy and crunched for time! It’s no surprise that the biggest excuse for not working out is… wait for it… NOT ENOUGH TIME. This is the main reason that I’m such a huge fan of HIIT workouts. These workouts are quick and efficient! If we’re really being honest with ourselves we can ALL find 20 minutes to get in a killer workout. You can burn a whole lot of calories in a short amount of time! Are you up for this 14-Day HIIT Cardio Challenge?!
HIIT stands for high intensity interval training. This form of training transitions back and forth between short bursts of high and low intensity exercise. The goal is to boost your heart rate to get that excess fat burning. You can participate in this challenge whether you workout at home or in the gym. You just need a few basic tools.
The Workout: 14-Day HIIT Cardio Challenge
What You’ll Do: Each workout will consist of 4 exercises. The first week each exercise will be performed for 30 seconds followed by 30 seconds of rest. You’ll then immediately move on to the next exercise in the circuit. Complete 5 rounds. It should take you 20 minutes. The second week, you’ll repeat the first week of exercises but you’ll perform each exercise for 45 seconds with 15 seconds of rest in between. Good luck, now get to burning those calories! 🙂
