I have had such a great time here in Florida, but as my vacation slowly comes to an end, I know its time to get back into my routine. This week I am doing a mixture of cardio and HIIT. I even linked a partner workout that my sister-in-law created. (BLOG: FaithfullyFitARMY)It can be done on your own too. I am STILL sore from it.

If I don’t see or talk to you all before next week, I want to wish you a Happy Easter! Jesus has Risen! He died on the cross so that ALL of us could go to heaven. There is nothing we can do to change His mind. You are enough.
This workout is probably my favorite HIIT workouts yet! It definitely one that will leave you dripping in sweat. I love it because you have 4 rounds that are 4 minutes long and you compete against yourself to see how many moves you can fit into each round. I love how I can track my progress and see my improvement each time I do this workout. The best part? No equipment needed and this workout can be done in your home in 20 minutes! I tracked and you burn about 300+ calories in this workout. Get me the 4X4 HIIT workout! >>>
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is a type of cardio /strength workout that has short periods of maximum effort followed by short periods of rest. Typically HIIT workouts are shorter so that you can give 100% effort the entire time. Because you are going 100% you are pushing your heart rate which means more calories burn that an average cardio workout.
HIIT workouts make your muscle lean and strong. They are only meant to be done 2-3 times per week. (While mixing in your regular workout routine in between) After several weeks you will start to know the difference in your breathing. For those of you that hate long workouts on a treadmill or elliptical or simply do not have the time to workout – this HIIT workout is for you. HIIT workouts give you fast and positive results.
What I love most about this workout is that there are HIGH AND LOW OPTIONS!!! This means that anyone, and I mean ANYONE can do this workout. I recommend starting out with the low options and make it a goal to get to the high ones. When I started doing this workout, I had to do all of the low options.

What is HIIT? HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. (Source: DailyBurn)
This workout suitable for ALL fitness levels and ages.To decrease the intensity either go down in weight or take the LOW options.To increase intensity increase the weight. It is very important to stay on time with the rests. The goal of this workout is to give it 100% effort during your moves followed by rest. Make sure you stay on time with your rests. If you rest too long or too short you will not get the proper workout. You are supposed to feel out of breath in this workout. What I do to keep track of time is to set my stopwatch on my phone and sit it next to me or to wear a stopwatch.
We all know it’s that time of year where it seems like every weekend (and sometimes weekday) we are eating Christmas cookies, some sort of casserole, or those darn Starbucks holiday drinks. On top of that we are trying to figure out a new routine with the cold temperatures and the sun going down at 5:00PM. On top of this, the last thing you want to do is to gain a few pounds. Anyone else have the struggle of finding the time to fit in a workout in this cold weather and busy schedule? I know I do.
Are you the person who exercises regularly but can’t get a trim waistline? I may have be able to help you with that.
I typically do three 30-40 minutes of cardio focused workouts each week. Cardio is great, but it will not tone or sculpt your muscle. I have already shown you in my 15 Minute HIIT workout how I tone and sculpt my body, but that workout is only meant to be done 1-3 times per week. What can I do the other days so I do not neglect my core muscles? It is simple, add-on a 5 minute core workout at the end of your workouts. Continue reading “6 Minute Core Sculpting Workout”→
What if I could tell you that you could burn the same calories you would burn working out for 30 minutes in only 15 minutes?This is NOT one of those infomercials, it is the real deal. Continue reading “15 Minute HIIT Workout”→
I have been thinking this past week on what I should write about next. I never want any of my posts to seem forced, so I patiently waited until it was clear on what I should write about. The clarity came this morning during worship time at church. We were all reminded that singing and praising God should be more of an outpour of what is coming from our soul than just feeding the words in our minds. I bet we all can admit that at times we will sing a song and not truly reflect on the lyrics. I was challenged to use those lyrics to praise and worship to where it stirs up my soul. That is when I knew what I wanted to write about. I have decided that my next couple of posts are going to be fitness related due to a high demand of requests on my Instagram. I am already working on my favorite fitness routine so I thought why not mix fitness and faith together. Continue reading “My 1 Hour Playlist”→
