Are you one of those women who wish they could lose weight but feel overwhelmed by your busy life? Ok, I really understand that, and that's why I have created something that will fit perfectly into your daily schedule. In just 15 minutes a day, you can get your heart pumping, build muscle with full body strength training moves, speed up your metabolism and lose weight!
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is the way to do it. This type of training is done for short periods of time because it is so intense, and it keeps your metabolism churning all day! When my schedule is jam packed I use this form of training to ensure I get the most out of my limited time at the gym.
It's important you remain consistent with your fitness program even on those days you think you have no time – or are just not in the mood. The allure of a 15-30 minute workout motivates me to push through!
Here is how it is done:
- Sprinting, Jump Rope, think short intervals of intense cardio training interlaced with recovery stages. So for instance, you can jump rope one minute, walk one minute, jump rope one minute, strength train one minute. Continue this interval for 15-30 minutes on and off.
- Another example would be sprint 1 minute, walk 1 minute; continue to repeat intervals of sprinting and walking for 15-30 minutes.
- Remember, you must exert a ton of energy then recover for a short time…..hence the title High Intensity Interval Training!
I put together a great exercise combo that includes full body strength training, and intense cardio – moutainclimbers and bicycle crunches. I perform each exercise for one minute switching back and forth.
