I had an exciting weekend with the family in Myrtle Beach representing Perfectly Posh at the Diva’s Half Marathon and 5K. It was an awesome time to connect with runners…encourage a lot of first timers and just to bask in a super positive atmosphere! (Seriously friends, if you have yet to try out a Diva’s race, I’m not sure what you’re waiting for…check out their site here: http://www.runlikeadiva.com/ )

But, it was a LONG weekend!

When we got home Sunday night, I wanted nothing more than to feed the kids, put them in bed and follow suit. But, I was encouraged by the weekend and excited about the goals I’ve been reaching post-babies…so I needed something fast, yet effective. HIIT workout it was…if you’re not sold on this format, or want to learn more, check out this piece on high intensity interval training!

Anyway…this took 30 minutes. Give it a try!

Warm Up:

  • 400 meter run
  • 30 seconds jumping jacks
  • 30 seconds butt kicks
  • 30 seconds high knees

Work Out:

  • Mountain climbers: 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest (x8)
  • Planks: 30 seconds on, 15 seconds rest (x8)
  • Weighted Punches: 20 seconds on, 15 seconds rest (x8)
  • Squat Thrusts: 20 seconds on, 15 seconds rest (x8)
  • Russian Twists: 20 seconds on, 15 seconds rest (x8)

Rest for a minute between each movement!

It works out to about 4 minutes of each movement with rest in between!

Simple. Straightforward. Intense! Give it a try!
