Yes, it’s true. I’m not a huge fan of long periods of cardio. You won’t see me sitting on a piece of equipment for 45 minutes. I get bored easily and I want my time spent in the gym to be spent in the best way possible. Strength training first followed by cardio.
1. HIIT – Based on where I am and what equipment I have available these exercises change. Speed and intensity are the most important factors. You should not be able to have a conversation while doing this. Use a timer and complete 30 seconds of work followed by 30 seconds of rest. Repeat circuit 4 times. This workout is body weight so no equipment needed. Twenty minutes and you are done!
- Squats – 25 reps round 1, 20 reps round 2, 15 reps round 3, 10 reps round 4
- Sprint to the top of the hill/steps
- Walk/jog back down
