8/5/2022 HIIT Workout

Today’s Workout

1. Kettlebell Swing

Stand tall, feet hip-width apart, and grasp your kettlebell with both hands. Keep arms long and relaxed. Gaze forward. Shift your bodyweight into your heels, push your hips back, and bend your knees as you let the ‘bell swing between your legs. Keep your back straight with a tight core. Continue to gaze forward as you exhale, drive from your hips, core, and legs to swing the kettlebell up to shoulder level. You will now be in a standing position again. Inhale and allow the kettlebell to fall between your legs again, with your hips back, knees bent and core remaining tight. Repeat.

2. Mini Loop Thrust

Lay on your back with arms flat at your sides. Lift knees up so that your feet are flat on the floor. Keep your feet hip-width apart. Loop resistance band around both knees. You may need to loop the band in half to shorten its length. Part your knees so that there is some tension in the band. Gaze up at the ceiling and exhale as you lift your hips as high as you can. Flex your glutes, hold for a moment, and then inhale as you let your hips back to the ground.

3. Pike Push Up

Place hands apart on the floor, shoulder-width or wider. Lift up your hips, and plant your feet into the ground. You will be in the shape of an upside-down V. Your arms and legs should be as straight as possible. Breathe in as you bend your elbows and bring your head down towards the floor. Pause just before reaching the floor. Breathe out as you lift yourself back up.

4. Kettlebell Swing

Stand tall, feet hip-width apart, and grasp your kettlebell with both hands. Keep arms long and relaxed. Gaze forward. Shift your bodyweight into your heels, push your hips back, and bend your knees as you let the ‘bell swing between your legs. Keep your back straight with a tight core. Continue to gaze forward as you exhale, drive from your hips, core, and legs to swing the kettlebell up to shoulder level. You will now be in a standing position again. Inhale and allow the kettlebell to fall between your legs again, with your hips back, knees bent and core remaining tight. Repeat.

5. Wide Grip Pull Up

Grasp pull up bar, hands further than shoulder-width apart, with your palms facing away from you. Breathe out as you pull yourself up, stopping as your nose reaches just above the bar. Hold in this position for a moment. Breathe out as you let your body drop back down. Engage your core throughout the exercise to prevent swinging.

6. Groiners

Prepare your body in a pushup position. Hands on the floor directly under your shoulders and toes firmly planted into the ground. Keep your body in line with hips not drooping nor raised high. Gaze softly at the floor. Exhale as you jump your feet up towards your hands, to a crouching position, still on all fours. Inhale and jump your feet back to pushup-position. Repeat.

7. Dead Bug

Lay on your back, arms and legs raised to the ceiling, legs bent 90 degrees at knees. Gaze up to the ceiling. Exhale as you drop back your right arm towards the top of your head, just above the ground. At the same time lower and straighten your left leg to just above the ground. Inhale as you bring your right arm and left leg back to beginning position. Repeat on the other sides.
