HIIT + Abs Workout

Here’s a Wednesday workout challenge for ya…a full body workout that’s a little bit of HIIT, a little bit of strength, a little bit of abs…

I’m all about workouts that are also great to do after runs, since I’m a runner and have to work on strength training. Does anyone else have a tough time balancing both when you’re training for a race?

I was inspired to do a 30-20-10 type workout after seeing a personal trainer and her client working out at the gym yesterday. The trainer had her client do 50-40-30-20-10 burpees, then back up 10-20-30-40-50 burpees. Dayyummmmm!

Here’s the workout:

Full Body Workout


DB means dumbbell…figured I’d clarify just in case ;) This whole workout should take about 20 minutes, so it’s great on it’s own, or after/before a cardio workout. 

As always, let me know if you try it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

What is your favorite core exercise? I need more to add to my repertoire :)
