Best Body Workout – 2012 – Week 48– Day 1

HIIT sprints

It’s December 24th, and you’re probably waaayyy to busy with friends and family to find time for a workout.

Luckily for you, I have the solution.

WORKOUT WARM-UP

  • 5 minutes of cycling, jogging, rowing, stair-mastering or ellipticalling
  • Start slow and gradually increase the intensity/speed until you’re breaking a sweat and your legs are ready for the real workout.

THE WORKOUT – 20 Minutes of HIIT Sprints

  • Set a timer for 20 minutes
  • Perform as many 10 second sprints as possible during those 20 minutes
  • Adjust rest periods to 1) Keep your sprints FAST and 2) Maximize the number of total sprints

Personally, I prefer my exercise bike for this workout, but it really doesn’t matter.

  • Run around a track
  • Sprint up a hill
  • Use a rowing machine
  • Climb stairs
  • Use an elliptical machine
  • Sprint on a rebounder
  • Stairmaster

Alright, that’s it for today’s workout.

Something different on Wednesday.
