It was! The bunny hops *killed* me in particular, and the first 3 abs workouts were also super intense!

Ok, that makes much more sense! So, I searched for "circuit training" on the fitness tracker, and there were a few options. Would you recommend I select "Circuit Training (including boot camp workouts)"? For time, do I input total time or do I subtract rest time?

Thanks, Coach Nancy!

Hi CREATIVITEAPOT,

What you are describing looks more like a circuit training than HIIT. HIIT usually involves cardio only, such as running mixed with periods of sprinting or spinning mixed with periods of higher intensity from increasing resistance and/or speed.

So, I've started a new training program with a personal trainer to lose 5-10 vanity pounds and really tone up/lose inches. I wanted to input calories burned into the fitness tracker, but HIIT isn't an option, so I was wondering how best to estimate my calorie expenditure? Here is a breakdown of my workout today:

-2 minute jog warm-up
-10 sets arm resistance exercises at 30 seconds apiece, 10 seconds rest
-10 sets lunges, side lunges, jump squats, mountain climbers, and wall squats, all using the bosu ball--30 seconds apiece, 10 seconds rest
-10 sets sprints, walking lunges, sprints+backpedaling, bunny hops (these were killer!), crab walks--60 seconds apiece, 30 seconds rest
-6 sets of crunches on boss ball at 20 seconds each, 10 seconds rest
-8 sets of toe reaches (legs extended up straight) & then an exercise where I lower my legs down to the ground, then back up, and then light my hips straight up using my core (can't recall the name)--20 seconds each, 10 seconds rest
-4 sets oblique reaches (lifting upper back and then rotating from side to side to touch the backs of my heels)--20 seconds each, 10 seconds rest

So, just about 60 minutes total. It was definitely a great workout, and I know I'll feel it tomorrow. How should I note the calorie burn? Will you need my stats?

Thank you so much!
