Happy Work Out Wednesday! I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready for the weekend. (Not that us Mama’s get much of a break then either.) I’m running on about 5 1/2 hours of sleep which has been par for the course this week. But, I didn’t let that stop me from making it to the gym.
Today was an Upper Body HIIT and after ransacking my toddlers trick or treat candy I felt the need to turn it up a notch. So, I added sprints. I kind of hated myself for it at the time but it felt good once I was done. If adding sprints to your HIIT is a little much just replace them with anything you like. Some ideas are jumping jacks, lateral jumps, high knees, jump rope, etc. With the added sprints I had to knock my exercise time from 30 to 25 seconds for the 2nd and 3rd round but I made sure I went all out. Do the following HIIT 3x through and follow up with lots of water and a good stretch.
After the sugar fest from Halloween I have decided to give up sugar for the month of November (Thanksgiving will of course be a cheat day). Are you starting or in the middle of any health challenges? I’d love to hear what you’re up to!
