Today’s workout is a 20 Minute HIIT workout that combines fat burning and body sculpting exercises. This workout will challenge your cardiovascular system and get you sweating. Scientific research has shown 20 minutes of HIIT to be the optimum for increased metabolic rates throughout the day.
One round takes 20 minutes, and you can repeat it up to 3X. So far today I only went through it once, but I am planning to repeat it this evening 1-2 more times. (I had a dentist appointment so I didn’t have time to complete the workout all at once!) Working up a sweat multiple times per day instead of in one longer session can be beneficial for regulation of your blood sugar levels, and keeping your metabolism boosted.
I am also starting to focus on a return to clean eating, so I will be sharing more about meals and recipes. Today for lunch I had: Avocado Curry Chicken Salad. Remember, eating healthy doesn’t have to mean eating bland!
If you are joining me for the challenge don’t forget to check in on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. The check in posts are a great way to stay motivated and on track. 🙂
