HIIT Training Day

“Training is the opposite of hoping.” – Nike
To start with today, we are doing 15 sets of sprints...remember the purpose of these is to work AS HARD AS POSSIBLE during the sprint, get your recovery in there as you wait for the next one, this is HIIT Training 101~it is all about speed. - HIIT has been shown to burn adipose tissue more effectively than low-intensity exercise - up to 50% more efficiently. It has also been shown to speed up your metabolism which helps you burn more calories throughout the day. Your goal is to train above your lactate threshold, so you will need to go fast enough to feel that the last few seconds feel almost impossible to keep running. Everything in your body should be burning...When I say “all out” I mean 100% intensity, nothing held back, as fast and as hard as your  legs can move, similar say to a full sprint on a track. dumbell swing and one burpee box jump~
Add one rep every minute. . . continue until you cannot keep up with the reps in the minute time frame. You will go for 15 minutes, starting over at 1 when you miss your minute.
advanced option, alternate one leg up at a time...
Score= highest rep count in the one minute time frame!

then...30 sec. Intervals....Dumbell Burpees.......mountain climbers...30 sec work, 30 sec off!
“Too often we are scared. Scared of what we might not be able to do. Scared of what people might think if we tried. We let our fears stand in the way of our hopes.
We say no when we want to say yes. We sit quietly when we want to scream. And we shout with the others, when we should keep our mouths shut. Why? After all, we do only go around once. There’s really no time to be afraid.
So stop. Try something you’ve never tried. Risk it. Enter a triathlon. Write a letter to the editor. Demand a raise. Call winners at the toughest court. Throw away your television. Bicycle across the United States. Try bobsledding. Try anything. Speak out against the designated hitter. Travel to a country where you don’t speak the language. Patent something. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. JUST DO IT.” ~ Barry Sanders (1992)
