You’ll start with a brief warm up that includes some dynamic stretching and plyometric work to get your heart rate up. Then, you’ll move onto the main portion of this HIIT workout program. The first round of exercises begins with a reverse lunge halo chop, which you’ll perform for 45 seconds, before getting a 15 second recovery, and then repeating a few more times. Moves like this work your entire body, strengthening your upper body with the hand weights and working your glutes and legs with the reverse lunge. Next you’ll do a cardio interval with split jumps to really burn calories and get your heart pumping! Plyometric moves like split jumps are great for elevating your heart rate and giving you that aerobic component to this combination workout.
The next round of exercises in this HIIT workout program starts with a chest fly hip bridge, which works your upper and lower body at the same time. The cardio interval that follows is called a Tombstone exercise, which is similar to a full-body roll up that’s slightly plyometric and will have you sweating! You’ll continue to alternate intervals of total body strength moves with intervals of heart-pumping cardio moves for the rest of this workout. Amy’s workout buddies will demonstrate different modifications so people of all fitness levels can get an amazing workout!
