I did a killer HIIT workout today. I have done HIIT inthe past and never been as wiped out as I was half way through today. I started doing HIIT as Alwyn describes it in this article. www.bodybuilding.com/fun/alwyn8.htm
For my warm up I did 5 minutes of hula hooping with a homemade adult hoop and then three rounds of 1 minute heavy work and 2 minutes active rest of jump roping, followed by 5 minute cool down of more hula hoping.
It was down right brutal and fun at the same time. I have been dying to learn how to hoop and jump rope. I am so excited to be able to work those things into the HIIT I really need to do!!
Now if only summer wasn't coming. It is just barely April and it is already 85 degrees outside. I know you guys up north are giving me nasty looks right now! You guys have icky weather in the winter and we get the icky weather in the summer.
