Short, late #HIIT workout

I think I’m a little burned out on the HIIT lately. Or I need new shoes, inspiring clothes and workout situations? LOL. That’s not gonna happen. But I do have a friend visiting for 10 days very soon. I’ll probably only get in a few sessions a week max. Maybe two!

Today I got distracted with studying and then killing (I think) a new piece, but I’m getting more adventurous… I’m still going to post it (in lamdod 0f course), even if it sucks.


HIIT Ladder + Tabata: Full Body Cardio Muscle Builder

  • With a couple added moves. Done from the list, with weighted vest.
  • Super annoying cause my battery was real low so I plugged it in b4 starting. Then I got mixed up with the moves & had to stop twice. Then my phone wouldn’t connect with the charge again & I kept getting low memory messages. Plugged it into the laptop for the tabata & that worked.

1x Part One (10/50), 17min

  1. Tuck Jump Burpees I omitted 180 turn. I like to connect elbows w/ thighs & it’s better to go straight on for tuck jumps in that case
  2. Diagonal Squat Jump Walk
  3. Side Jump Lunges
  4. Three Wide Mountain Climbers/One Jump Lunge
  5. Falling Lunge R (L on the way back down) Step out to the side & smoothly drop into lunge. Lift knee & hop on return
  6. Triceps 180 Burpee/Plank Jump (hop in-out-in)
  7. Plie Squat Jumps
  8. Broad jump forward, bunny hop back Three Wide Mountain Climbers/One Jump Up This move was written in twice but wasn’t done twice, so I decided to just add in a move I like & keep the 9-count.
  9. Plank Jump/Dive Bomber/Wide Tuck Feet wide for all.

1x Part Two (20/10)
Squat Jumps Narrow & Wide
Three Jump Lunges/Three Plyo Jumps

1x Part Three (20/10)
Star Burpees
Ski Jumps Narrow squat jumping side to side, swinging arms as if you’ve got poles

1x Part Four (10/50) 17min
OK I have a shitty weighted vest & now it’s all stretched out. I’m not handy with sewing & I don’t have $ for repairs so I can’t do all this fancy “turn it upside down & stitch it tighter in various ways” that all the YouTube trainers do.

It ends up around my freaking shoulders EVERY SINGLE TIME I jump back into plank for anything. I took it off for the descent back to move 1 on this set. Fuck it.

  1. Narrow Squat Jump/Tuck Jump/Star Jump
  2. Push Up Bear Crawl Get in crawl. Take a step forward w/ 1 hand & leg, push-up. Go forward as far as you can & then back up.
  3. Curtsy Jump Up R
  4. Curtsy Jump Up L
  5. Push Up Touch Back Reach back & touch alt foot.
  6. Diamond Burpees Diamond push-up, diamond jump.
  7. Bunny Hops Moving foward & then backward.
  8. Heel Click Standing & w/ hands on floor/Pike Press/Push Up
  9. Straight Abs I just added a move to keep this set the same length as the first one.

#HIIT #Tabata and easy #yoga

I’ve been subscribed to HIIT like a Girl for awhile but had never tried one of the workouts, then today I clicked on one by accident. My biceps hurt from yesterday, particularly the right, as in I didn’t want to hoist my cup of coffee first thing in the morning! She’s only using 10lbs here though so I thought I’d follow suit. Tomorrow’s gonna either be a rest day or a yoga focus day.
