Sweat Like a Pig, Look like a Fox

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

I have never been one to love working out.   I do it for a number of things:

1.  I genetically have to.  I can't eat ice cream without it going to my thighs immediately after consuming.
2.  I recently found out money does not grow on trees (really?? such a shame) so I don't want to have to buy more clothes that will fit.
3.  I do love the rush of endorphins when I exercise.  I have never felt more like superwoman until after a workout.
4.  I want to live a long and healthy life.

I also do not have TONS of time on my hands.  So how do I make my workouts happen?  I make them quick.  Most, if not all, of my workouts are 30 min. or less.  I also focus on HIIT workouts. In an article on DailyBurn.com, "HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods.  This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time."  (View the full article here.)

I wanted to share a few of my favorite treadmill workouts that I have been doing lately.  Yes, I am still on my BlackFire program with DailyBurn, but it is about to wrap up in a few days and I am going to start increasing more running back into the mix.  I pulled out my favorites to showcase today.

I always rotate them so that I keep my body guessing and not to hit a plateau in my workouts.  These below are pretty fun and definitely have me winded and sweaty afterwards.  The best part is that they are over in 30, but man do they work!
