warm up with a walk before your HIIT Workout On The Go

Welcome to my “Physically FIIT” series! A few weeks ago, I introduced you all to the “Financially FIIT” series and explained a little about this new three part series I’m doing with the boys. I’m sure many of you all have seen Spencer on my Insta stories (no he is not my boyfriend!) during a lot of my workouts the past few months. Over the next few months he will be working with me to create some fun and easy workouts and tips for you all to become “Physically FIIT”!

Today I wanted to share a 30-minute HIIT workout for when you are on the go…because life gets busy. Or for me I wanted him to create this HIIT workout on the go for me to use anytime I’m traveling! I’m heading to Montana next week and need to keep up the workout momentum before the holidays get here (which feels like tomorrow!).

We decided to create this 30-minute HIIT workout without weights so you can do it anywhere and everywhere. We’ve broken it down into a quick cardio warm-up + arm/leg circuits.

MEET SPENCER

Funny story… I met Spencer through my friend Rhonda because she convinced me to come to one of his spin classes. He was so nice and upbeat I instantly loved his classes and his personality. We started hanging out more over the summer (as a group!) and as I was getting to know Spencer I found out he played football at SMU! However, he was there a little after I was… You should’ve seen my face when I realized how much younger he was than me, haha.

Anyway, we still bonded over football and working out! He is also a trainer at Evolve which is one of my absolute favorite gyms here in Dallas. They are very similar to VIVE so I know I’m getting the same training across the board.

Lunging is easy and can be done anywhere

Okay so lets get right to it! Clearly I’m not a fitness expert so I hope this is explained in the best way possible, but if you have questions please leave them below or on Instagram!

Put back leg up on a bench or anything you can find that will elevate your leg.

Other options = regular squats or broad jumps (forward moving squat jumps).

TRICEP DIPS
Normally legs are bent to 90 degrees, but putting them straight out makes this move harder. Keep arms straight and then slowly lower down to 90 degrees. Lower your butt as you lower your arms.

UP/DOWN PLANK HOLD
Start in normal plank position on elbows. Then push yourself up one arm at a time to a high plank. Then lower back down.

You’re done!! Doesn’t seem too hard, right? It’s only 30-minutes of your day and I guarantee you’ll feel better about yourself if you do this a few times a week. Even on vacation! But I’ll get back to you on that… 😉

Thanks so much to Lululemon for our outfits!!!!!!!!!
