Workout Breakdown

Morning my friends!!  How are you this Thursday morning!?

 

I’ve just finished my workout for the day and I wanted to give you a breakdown.

 

I really like Amy Dixon’s series of HIIT workouts.  (high intensity interval training)  She has three DVD’s out but I only have the first two.

Breathless-Body-2

 

I am currently doing the Breathless Body: The Edge

I love it!

It’s about 53 minutes long from warm-up to the cool-down….

Four circuits

Three different exercises in each circuit

Three rounds each

Three different levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced)

The levels I love because you don’t have to limit yourself to a certain level.  If you want to try the advance on a certain exercise, then you can do that.  The other thing that I like is that Amy is right there with you the entire workout!  Doing it with you!

 

 

 

Warm-Up

 

Circuit One:

  • Cross country
  • Russian dance
  • Plank tuck-in’s

 

Circuit Two:

  • Squat jacks
  • Forward and back
  • parallel skier

 

Circuit Three:

  • X lunge jumps
  • broad jumps
  • Plank quarter turn

 

Circuit Four:

  • Up and over
  • Tuck Jumps
  • Plank jacks

6 minutes of taking it to the Edge!

  • Each exercise for 30 seconds with no break in between

 

Cool Down

 

One of the most important things to remember when you are working out to a DVD (for me anyway) is to not be so hard on yourself.  Remember to just keep moving and don’t give up on yourself!

 

Have a great day!
