This week’s High Intensity Interval Training routine consists three exercises using resistance. I chose a lighter kettlebell (10 pounds), so I could move more quickly through the movements to focus on getting in a cardiovascular workout. This is a killer finishing circuit to add to the end of your workout! Burn, baby, burn!
Step 1 – Lateral Lunge to Upright Row
First, holding on to a kettlebell, step to the right side and perform a lateral lunge. As you stand up from the side lunge to the start position, perform an upright row with the right arm. Perform this exercise 8 times and then repeat on the left side.
Step 2 – Moving Jump Squats
Next, starting in a wide stance holding the kettlebell, jump squat in an explosive forward motion. Complete 10 hops.
Step 3 – Weighted Sit-Ups
Lastly, position yourself on the floor on your rear with your upper body and legs elevated off the ground. Holding the kettlebell right above your midsection, stretch out flat and then crunch your legs and upper body back together to the start position for 15 reps!
Repeat all three 3 exercises for 4 total rounds as quick as you can, minimizing rest!
