This was a doozy friends, whew! But honestly I felt great after three rounds. I wrote a version of this HIIT workout but it just didn’t flow, with a few tweaks, here she is! I really love this one! 🤗 I found a 45 sec work; 15 sec rest HIIT timer on YouTube. HIIT Timer 45 sec work; 15 sec rest
If this is too much try this timer HIIT Timer 30 sec work; 30 sec rest for starters.

Here’s a little strength workout! Try this on Tuesday and Thursday, HIIT workout on Monday, Wednesday and Friday!
10 reps each arm exercise – 3 rounds
You will need light to medium dumbbells. For beginners, 3 to 5 pounds. Intermediate to advanced, 8 to 15 pound dumbbells.
- Shoulder Press – You may stand or sit while performing this exercise. Hold a dumbbell in each hand. Bend your elbows and raise your upper arm to shoulder height. Gently press weight up to the ceiling and back down. Adjust weight if needed.
- Hammer Curl– This exercise is my favorite to work the biceps. Hold weights perpendicular to the ground and raise just a hair shy of touching your shoulder.
- Lateral Raise– Lighten up the weight with this exercise and have a slight bend in the arms. Dumbbell in each hand and raise both arms out the side, holding them parallel to the ground. Do lift weights above the shoulder.
- Full Sit-Ups – Begin on your back, with little or no momentum, slowly sit up.
- Forearm Plank- Just like we did from HIIT workout
- Leg Lifts- Begin on your back and lift legs to the ceiling. Leg Lift example
- Side Plank – Lie on your side with your bottom elbow on the ground underneath your shoulder. Hold for 30 seconds and alternate exercise on the other side of the body. Side Plank example
