Workout of the Week
HITT Arms & Abs

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

Workout
Circuit 1: Complete each exercise with ALL OUT intensity for 40 seconds. Rest for 20 seconds between exercises. Repeat circuit 1 for 2 sets. Add the “Burn Out” exercise immediately following the second set.

Circuit 2: Complete each exercise with ALL OUT intensity for 40 seconds. Rest for 20 seconds between exercises. Repeat circuit 1 for 2 sets. Add the “Burn Out” exercise immediately following the second set.

Perform a cool-down that allows for your heart rate to gradually slow down to a normal rate and hold static stretches such as the ones below for 20-30 seconds each. It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.
