Today’s 12 Minute HIIT is somewhat unique because it’s entirely floor based, meaning all of the movements take place down on your exercise mat. Floor based workouts are particularly great for beginners, or for those with injuries or mobility issues. After yesterdays brutal 12 minute HIIT that should have absolutely destroyed your legs and lower half, today’s workout on the floor with Coach Sylvie might be a welcome change of pace! If you missed yesterday’s workout, consider doing that first, and then bring it down to the floor.
In today’s workout, Sylvie has some important tips along the way, so pay close attention to modification cues. Part of what we are trying to do each workout is teach you guys the mechanics of the exercises, so that you can learn proper form. We aren’t just leading here - teaching you the fundamentals of the exercises will empower you with the knowledge that you need to feel comfortable with fitness. Getting you feeling empowered and engaged each day is a big part of making this daily exercise practice stick.
The only gear that you will need today is your wrist / ankle weights, and if you want to take it to the next level, you can snap on our BodyRock weighted vest. Moving forward, most workouts will start incorporating the vest - bringing hands free resistance to bring a stronger strength training component to each workout. Strength training fused with HIIT has been scientifically proven to be the best workout format for losing weight and shedding excess body fat. Getting you stronger and leaner, is part of what we are aiming for here, so consider investing in our vest.
Enjoy your workout. That’s not just a sign off. I mean it. ENJOY knowing that you are stepping outside of your comfort zone for 12 minutes and striving to achieve your personal best each round. Check in with your attitude. Does it need a quick adjustment? It’s 12 Minutes. You’ve got this. Now do it. Do it.
