My 12 minute HIIT Style workout

Brilliant if you are short on time as this HIIT style workout on lasts for 12 minutes.  Simple exercises that will give a full body workout.  3 rounds plus 1 minute rest at the end of each round.  There is no equipment needed; just you, suitable clothing and footwear and some form of timer.  Concentrate on working as hard as possible with maximum effort; those 12 minutes will fly believe me!

HIIT Style Workout

Remember when it comes to number of rep’s focus on quality and not quantity.  The fitter you get the more rep’s you will be able to perform.  Whenever I do HIIT I focus on doing each exercise well by using the correct technique.  It’s not a race!

Before attempting any form of workout be sure to warm-up for 5 minutes.  As with any form of exercise if you have any injuries seek medical advice before attempting any form of exercise that could aggravate or provoke.  I am not a personal trainer, this is a workout I do myself and have put together through my own experiences such as attending classes and regularly performing these exercises.

Time to hit the Gym, this time I’m not quitting!

Time to Hit the Gym

Six months on ….

From initially taking up running I’d got into a routine and getting out and pounding the pavements a habit. However, I was also starting to find running a 5km fairly easy going despite mixing up routes and trying to improve on my time.  runningThen it started to happen; the prospect of putting my trainers on and getting out for a run rather uninspiring.  I suppose it was a case of now needing something else to motivate me to maintain my fitness.

Old habits can easily start creeping back

As I could have predicted my motivation to keep fit started to wane. 3 runs a week became two then sometimes one or none a week.  I was in danger of undoing all the hard work I’d done and forgetting the goals I’d been so proud of achieving.  Sitting on that sofa watching Coronation Street instead of getting out there was starting to become more appealing and the norm.  An old habit was starting to re-immerge.

So what next?
