We are halfway into January, so I think it is time to stop putting off and start getting back into the swing of things. I know this holiday season had me a little off course as far as workouts go. I did stumble upon a new routine that I thought was worth sharing. The below workout is something you can do at home and in a short amount of time. Let’s face it; those are two of the main excuses people use for not exercising. I think the reason I liked this workout so much is that it allowed me to work up a sweat at my own pace and also offers room to adapt if you choose to add it to your weekly rotation.
At Home HIIT – Cardio
1 minute jumping jacks
10 up/down plank (click here)
1 minute plank
Repeat 2 to 3 times, resting 15 to 30 seconds between rounds
Now, before anyone looks at this and thinks that isn’t something I want to try, it was an excellent workout, and I definitely felt it afterward, which is how I gauge the effectiveness. If you don’t think you can do the workout as it is, try taking the reps in half or only doing one round to start with. As with many of the workouts I share, they are adaptable to your fitness level. If you find you like this routine and want to keep it in your rotation, you can always increase your reps or number of rounds as you get stronger and more stamina.
The whole point of this workout is to get you moving and get rid of excuses. I really hope you try it and like it (in that, I feel sore in a good way, kind of like it).
