I am not a fan of long, extensive, over the top workouts. I like to get it in quick, and not have to think about it for the rest of the day. My college soccer coach was a big believer in short practices with high intensity. There is no need for a 3+ hour practice, going at an average pace. It is more effective to train at a high speed for a shorter amount of time. This mentality is what got me through my playing days, and it's what gets me through now!
I'm sure you have all heard of HIIT workouts - High Intensity Interval Training. These are your best friend when you are crunched for time, but are looking for a good sweat. It takes little equipment and little time, gets your heart racing, your blood pumping, and I promise you will feel ah-mazing afterwards.
This workout is short and sweet, but incorporates full-body toning exercises. The idea is to go as quick as you can, but stay controlled! Form is #1 priority! Let me know what you think!
Set your timer for 5 minutes. Go through each exercise in Circuit 1, and continue through the cycle until the timer stops. Rest for 1 minute. Set your timer again for 5 minutes. Go through each exercise in Circuit 2, and continue through the cycle until the timer stops. Rest for 1 minute. Repeat this one more time for Circuit 1 and Circuit 2.
