Are you tired of the same old cardio routine on the treadmill?
The workouts that get your heart rate high can be repetitive and boring. But, you still want to get in that fat burning workout in. I know the feeling. I used to run on the treadmill once a week, religiously. Had to get my cardio in, and running and spin classes were the only ways I really thought you could do a fat burning workout.
Time’s have changed, I have broadened my horizons you could say! Now I only run on the treadmill when I’m craving it, maybe once every three weeks, and I only run for 10-15 minutes. I get to bored too easily. When the weather is nice I do enjoy outdoor runs, and may run every 1-2 weeks, but again, for no more than 5k.
HIIT – Fat Burning Workouts
I now do a lot more HIIT workouts. High intensity interval workouts, are fast paced workouts, with minimal rest, lasting anywhere from 10-15 minutes. This HIIT workout is a little different, it doesn’t push your heart rate to the max the entire workout. However, will keep your heart rate in between 130-max for 35-45 minutes. It is a fat burning workout. There are a ton of different combinations you can do, and target different muscles. These are similar to the 15 minute HIIT workouts, however are longer in duration, with the ability to be challenging and attainable.
This fat burning workout is inspired by Sarah’s Day (Youtube vlogger) and is killer!
Get your timers ready. I use the app Interval Timer, set up like this.
There are 8 exercises you will be performing. Each exercise you will perform for 30 seconds, rest for 10, then repeat the same exercise for 30 seconds, repeating this 6 times in total. Then you will move on to the next exercise.
Burpees — 30 seconds on, 10 seconds off. Repeat burpee intervals 6 times.
Jumping lunges — 30 seconds on, 10 seconds off. Repeat jumping lunges intervals 6 times. And so on, repeat with each exercise.
