For 25 days (while Amy’s campaign is going on) I’m doing my own 10-ish minute workouts in 25 Minneapolis outdoor locations. I invite you to join me.
WORKOUT FOUR @ ROSE GARDENS
Okay, y’all. I’m sore. Like the crazy- can’t lift my arms up to wave ‘hi’ to you- kind of sore. It’s fascinating how 10 minute HIIT workouts everyday can do this to ya. Proof that it doesn’t take much other than a few minutes of intense training to really challenge and work your muscles.
I thought I’d skip all upper body exercises in this workout since I’m pretty sure I couldn’t even do one push up today. My whole body is feeling it, but the legs can take a bit more punishment. I began this morning thinking I would get my workout in early.
I put it off. “I’ll do it in the afternoon”, I thought. Then afternoon came and went. And finally at 7pm I KNEW if I was going to follow through on this commitment I’d made I needed to make it happen.
Committing publicly to moving your body is an excellent plan to keep you on track and making sure you follow through. There’s no way I would’ve done this workout if I wasn’t openly committed to the 25 workouts in 25 days challenge.
- 20 fast legs on a bench (right side & left side)
- 20 alternating split leg squats on each side
- 150 yard sprint
- 20 skater jumps on each side
- 20 skip touches on each side
- 150 yard sprint
- Repeat through three times total
The workout took me exactly 10 minutes!
Today was really hard. Mostly because my body is hella’ hurting. I felt SO amazing that I followed through and got it done. Not sure what tomorrow will bring and I’m looking forward to my body recovering a bit, but without a day off coming up, I might just need to fit in an easy workout soon.
Verdict after day 4: 10 minute HIIT workouts every day will kick your butt. I’m excited to see how I’m feeling in my body at the end of this challenge.
What are your thoughts on 10 minute workouts. Worth it or a waste of time? Leave a comment and tell me why you think so.
