Today was leg day, normally my favorite workout of the week but I just didn’t feel it. I felt weak and mostly tired. I almost didn’t do my workout and when I was finally done I almost didn’t do the short 10 minute HIIT like I planned on doing with my friends.
Good thing that I had my MBF (Mega Best Friend) Tina and my girl Tatiana there to keep me from giving up. Thanks Ladies!
My MBF and I decided that from this week on we are going to so a short HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) after our regular workouts, three times a week, to get that extra umph in our bodies going on. Today marked the first day and boy was I glad it was over.
HIIT is all about giving it all and going full out with an exercise for a period of time and then take short rest periods like 10 or 15 seconds depending on what your doing and how the HIIT is set up. Then you move on to the next round. Today we only did 10 minutes, 45 seconds on (exercise) and 15 seconds off (rest) for 10 rounds. Short but intense especially after leg day!
- Squats 4 sets add weight every set for 10-4 reps
