Day 31 of the 60 Day Ultimate Optimization Challenge
OK this one is a good one, optimizers!
One of my FAVORITE activities is HIIT workouts. I do them all the time—at least 3-5 x a week. I like to go to my local HIIT gym where they vary the workouts daily. When I am traveling I do HIIT at the gym—just 8 rounds of 30 second sprint with 60 second rest in between.
Today, we will be learning about HIIT workouts! What is HIIT? High-intensity interval training is a cardiovascular exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods to get the heart rate up.
Try… 60 seconds on and 60 seconds off of an exercise like jumping jacks or high knees. This seems to be the magic combo.
Choose your exercises—HIIT can be what you want it to be, scale it, but you should be breathless in your 60 seconds of running, walking or jumping.
Even as little as 4 minutes can make a difference!
Your homework for today is: Try a HIIT workout today, even if it's for 5 minutes!
