18-Minute HIIT Workout 2

Quick energizing and fat blasting workout!

18-Minute HIIT Workout 2  jillconyers.com #workout #fitness #HIIT @jillconyers #move #fitnessfridayI can’t remember a time when I was more happy that it’s Friday! Work stuff and work stress. Ugh.

Kicking stress to the curb.

Move. Whatever amount of time you can squeeze into a day to simply move…and SWEAT works wonders for your state of mind, confidence and energy level.

It is impossible to stay stressed during a workout.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. Creating workouts is also another way to study for the PT exam. I’m taking what I learned from chapters read the previous week and applying the info to create a workout.

I do the workout 3 times throughout the week and then I’m ready to create the next workout.

Studying.

Beats boredom.

Motivation to strength train has returned.

Stress busting and fat blasting.

That’s a win-win-win-win!

18-Minute HIIT Workout 2  jillconyers.com #workout #fitness #HIIT @jillconyers #move #fitnessfriday

Equipment needed: timer, hand weights

Remember:

  • Don’t skip the warm-up or cool-down.
  • Use proper body alignment and good form.
  • Start easy and avoid pain.
  • Gradually increase intensity and/or repetitions.

Music is a must. Just like last week, grab your favorite playlist and turn up the volume. Go!

Embrace movement! jillconyers.com #move #fitness @jillconyers

18-Minute HIIT Workout

Quick energizing workout when you’re low on motivation or short on time.

18 Minute HIIT Workout. Quick energizing workout when you're low on motivation or short on time. jillconyers.com #HIIT #workout #fitness @jillconyers

Happy Tuesday friends! Who’s ready to sweat?

I’m a lot excited [and a little nervous] about this week’s Dish the Fit. You know, the butterflies in the stomach kind of feeling.

For the first time I’m sharing a workout I created. Sure, it works great in my home gym with just me and the music, but to put it out there for the world to see and possibly even use. That’s a whole different story!

As you may have noticed in my recent workout recaps, for the past few months all I want to do is yoga. So, lack of motivation to do other types of workouts and life being exceptionally busy right now lead me to create this workout.

Surely I can find 18 minutes at least 3/week, right?

Surely I can get motivated and energized with a fun workout, right?

With this workout the answer is yes to both questions. It’s quick for limited time and it’s energizing and fun with the moves and fast pace.

Turn on your favorite playlist. Turn up the volume. Enjoy my favorite QUICK workout.

Go!

Remember:

  • Don’t skip the warm-up or cool-down.
  • Use proper body alignment and good form.
  • Start easy and avoid pain.
  • Gradually increase intensity and/or repetitions.

Next time! Photos to show you each exercise. Who knows? Maybe even a video [one day].

Sharing this workout with the #fitfam makes me realize even more that becoming certified as a personal trainer is EXACTLY what I should be doing.

The journey continues to define my purpose.
