(no equipment necessary!)
Happy hump day 🙂 I hope the week has been wonderful so far!
I’ve got a great midweek cardio and ab workout for you to try out. This is actually the workout I took my cardio HIIT class through the past two weeks. Everyone is really liking (or should I say hating…) this workout. It definitely works up a sweat and there are TONS of options for more or less intense exercises.
The way the workout flows when I teach is that we start with a brief warmup with dynamic stretches and light exercise JUST to get the body moving. I teach at noon, so I know most people coming to my class have been sitting all morning (at least I have!) so it’s good to get those kinks out.
We then move into three blocks of work. During each block, there are 4 exercises that we complete for 30 seconds each one right after the other. We take a 30-60 second break then go through the exercises again and repeat for a total of 4 times through. After we have repeated one block 4 times, we move onto the next block and follow the same workout formula with different exercises.
When completing the work, I always want my participants (and you!) to work hard, but PLEASE listen to your body. If you just aren’t feeling it today…take a break, drink some water and jump back in when you can. 🙂 And as always, make sure to STRETCH stretch stretch when you are done.

Here’s the workout:
Here are some video links I found to help out with a couple of the moves:
I hope you have a great rest of the day! Let me know if you give the workout a try. Any feedback is always welcome! 🙂
