This is a great little workout to do when it’s a beautiful day and you don’t want to be indoors! Or, as in these photos, maybe you’re on holidays so you don’t have access to your usual gym. Make sure you do a little warm up before you get into it. The workout is a mixture of body weight resistance training and high-intensity interval training. Enjoy!

Resistance Training Workout – Total Body Beginner Circuit

2014-12-20T11:18:10+00:00 20 December 2014|Categories: MOVE|Tags: , , , |

This is a great workout for a beginner, or for someone who is experienced but has perhaps had some time off from exercise and is wanting to get back into training (that’s me after pretty much every holiday!) Choose relatively light weights because you are doing the exercise for a whole minute. As well as engaging and overloading most of the muscles in your body, you will also get a cardiovascular workout from these circuits.

HIIT Workout – Total Body Tabata Workout

2014-12-12T11:05:49+00:00 12 December 2014|Categories: MOVE|Tags: , , , |

This workout involves alternating a cardiovascular exercise with a resistance training exercise. It delivers a lot of benefits in a short amount of time – a high calorie burn, improving your fitness and improving your muscle strength and tone. Tabata training is a type of interval training where you exercise for twenty seconds and then rest for ten. You repeat this eight times, which will take you 4 minutes. This is one round of Tabata; however, in the workout below you are alternating two exercises in each round of Tabata, rather than just the one exercise 8 times.

Hello!

I am going to start posting my HIIT (high-intensity-interval-training) workouts. I do about two a week and I thought it would be good to post them on here, so that:

a) Other people (you, my blog followers!) can give them a go, and

b) I will have them all recorded in one spot so I can look back on them when needing some workout ideas!

Give the following circuit a go. I can guarantee it will get your heart rate up and work your whole body.
