I felt it was time to incorporate intense conditioning into my routine and brought my back old HIIT routines! This was a great first HIIT sesh:

Warm up: 5min on the Airdyne, Foam Roll & Stretch, 25: Walking Lunges, Squats, Push-Ups, and Crunches

Using a Tabata Timer App, set it for 20 seconds of “work” with 10 seconds of “rest”.

Spend 20 seconds on exercise 1 then rest for 10, 20 seconds on exercise 2 then rest for 10, and so on. Keep going round after round until time is up! I went for 6 rounds, about 15 min straight!

This are the exercises:

  • Wall Ball
  • Ball Slam
  • Tire Jumps
  • Clean & Press
  • Push Ups

It was a humid and hot morning and I haven’t poured sweat like this in a long time! It felt so good!

Jammed my Spotify playlist “Boot Camp”

Hope you got some cool exercise ideas!

Have a killer day!

Got up early to hit the streets for a 3 mile run with stops for a little circuit. I LOVE this kind of training. This is my favorite form of cardiovascular training that incorporates bodyweight exercises to build functional strength. For me, at about 1 mile in, I begin to feel a sense of mental clarity which allows me to work through any life challenges, think clearly about making important decisions and get creative ideas to current projects.

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to train like this and I was definitely feeling it in my knees and ankles towards the end. I always stretch and foam roll before hitting the pavement then stretch again right after AND place ice packs on the knees if I’m feeling achiness coming on. By the next day, I’m feeling back to normal! Super important to prep before and take care after….especially when you hit your 40’s!
