Yesterday I subbed for a HIIT class!
HIIT classes are super great. They are high intensity, usually shorter than an hour, give-it-all-you-got kind of class. The instructor who usually does it is super intense. I felt a bit of pressure trying to give these people a class as good as her’s. I tried to think of my spartan class and take things from there.
Here is my HIIT it and Quit it Class
- Running in place with high knees
- Burpees (optional push up)
- Prisoner squats and don’t be afraid to drop it low
- Jump rope
- Bulgarian squats with weights. This is one of my new favorite exercises
- Farmers walks
- Boat pose with either straight legs or bent knees
It was fun how it all kind of work out. If you do it on your own, it’s a minute each and you do the circuit twice. With a group, I used the farmer’s walk station as my timer and everyone would switch when that person did three laps (averaged about a minute- 1:15). Added a little pressure and teamwork to the dynamic.
After we did that, we did a minute plank and then plank with an oblique side crunch for about a minute alternating legs.
I had a lot of fun teaching and showing my knowledge of exercises. It made me feel good about my personal training future and gave me a little confidence for my yoga class- coming up in 2 weeks!!
Hope you liked the work out and you could feel the burn!!
