Week Three! How’s everyone doing? By now your body should be getting used to having a daily fitness routine, so we’re going to crank up the intensity just a notch by adding in a session of HIIT (high intensity interval training). HIIT is a type of cardio exercise, usually lasting from 10-30 minutes per session, that alternates short, very high intensity intervals with longer, slower recovery intervals. HIIT workouts are the perfect way to condition your body, and they are excellent for fat burning as well.
If you’re looking to change up your workout routine a bit, or if you’re interested in running and marathon training, be sure to head over to Play. Party. Pin. where Britni is also sharing a weekly workout plan and meal guide!
WORKOUT PLAN: For each day shown, complete the listed exercises at least once (note: if you are able, repeat each cycle 2-3 times to maximize results) and walk for the stated amount of time. This week’s workout incorporates run/walking on Thursday and Sunday. For these workouts, run for one minute followed by walking for one minute. Repeat the run/walk cycle for 30 minutes.

If you want to add a bit more weight and resistance to your routine (especially your squats!), I highly recommend picking up a 10-pound weighted toning ball. I have been using one while doing my squats and lunges, adding an overhead press with each squat or lunge for extra toning. I have also added morning or evening yoga stretching a couple of times a week using my all-time favorite All-Day Yoga for Beginners DVD.
