Interval/tibata training has really helped me gain strength as well as given me a chance to sneak in a relatively short workout with big benefits.
My workout today was inspired by these ladies over at Purely Twins. Lori and Michelle are the go-to ladies for devising workouts that take minimal time and equipment but kick your butt. My work-out today went like this
30 seconds alternating plank and high knees x 12 rounds
Next I did 30 seconds each of skaters alternating with planks x 12 rounds
The next 12 minutes I made tough…
I started with 30 seconds burpees (with pushups) alternating with 30 seconds split mountain climbers x 12 rounds
For the last 6 minutes I did 30 seconds of jump squats alternating with 30 seconds of Russian twists (I think they’re called that!) x 12 rounds
When you’re doing the Russian twists….keep your legs stationary and twist from your core…they don’t look like much, but they burn!
That’s it! 24 minutes and I got an all-over workout along with a bit of cardio. Ryan and I later took a 3 mile run together and I consider this a great day as far as physical activity!
