September is the new January! Get after it and HIIT that Core and Total Body!

September is here!

Kids are back in school and now it's time to get serious.... Serious because September is like a NEW beginning! Almost like New Years, but BETTER! Believe in yourself. MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF. YOU ARE WORTH IT. Find what makes you tick, what clears your mind, what focuses your energy and DO IT. For me, I HAVE to have time to myself EVERY DAY. Being a stay at home mother of two (with one on the way), it's SO EASY for the day to go by and for me to NOT take that time. When I don't, I'm miserable. I'm tense. I get in a bad mood. My husband will look at me and KNOW I need a break. He'll tell me, "Why don't you go out for a run." I don't take it as an insult, but as a word of wise advice coming from someone who knows me so well! I need that release, whether it is going out for a run, doing a HIIT workout, playing tennis, or something else physical, I need to get it done! WHAT is holding you back? WHO is telling you, you don't have time for yourself?
"If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation." - Lao Tzu

With this, I have put together a new total body and core HIIT workout!

45 seconds on, 10 seconds off 7 exercises, to be completed 3-5x thru

-Jump Squat with Toe Tap -Weighted Up, Up, Down, Down -4 Pull ups with 3 second hold on last one -4 Mt. Climbers + 2 Jack Legs -Reverse alternating lunges with sandbag shoulder to shoulder transfer -8 high knees + 4 in & out abs -4 wide push ups + one 3 ct. tricep pushup down/up
