Big welcome to everyone that is discovering this workout series, this is HIIT workout episode #26, of our BodyRock 12 Minute HIIT series.
Today’s workout is a lower body focused ‘Abs & Ass’ HIIT workout, that has some classic exercises from what Jessica calls ‘back in the day’. These are some foundational moves that have stood the ultimate test of time because they are effective and they work.
The first move is a move that Jessica absolutely hated when she started to train, and I’m sharing this because she mentions it in the video (video is below), but also because most of us have exercises that we can’t stand or even hate. This is usually because it’s hard, or because we feel insecure about doing them.
Ok, please pay attention to this next part. Life is exactly the same way, we tend to avoid situations that are challenging, preferring to take the past of least resistance. Unfortunately, every time we take the easy way, we start to get soft, lose our edge, we get weak. When your inner voice starts talking you down, when what you should be doing is standing up, then start catching it - and turning it into an alert that you need to step forward in your life into your challenges. Leaning into a hated exercise is just a living metaphor for stepping up, and into, the rest of your life.
The Workout Format:
This HIIT workout consists of 4 exercises, that you will complete in 3 rounds of activity. There is 50 seconds of exercise, followed by 10 seconds of recovery. Follow along with Jessica in the real-time video below, and work through each exercise and round with her. Listen for tips and cues, she will be going over proper form and giving performance tips as she leads you through the full 12 minutes.
The Workout Gear:
For today’s HIIT workout, Jessica is upping her calorie burn and optimizing her fat loss by automatically injecting resistance and strength training into her workout by wearing weights.
Optionally she could have opted to wear her HIIT Ankle Weights (2lbs each). We have a pretty spectacular summer promo, where you can get all 3 (Vest, Wrist, Ankle) for $99, plus for spending $99, you will get our HIIT skipping rope and hard case (regularly $79.99) for….free.
