Workout and Word of the Day #30

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

Do hiit workouts ever get easier?  My guess is probably not and I guess that is a good thing.  It takes boldness and practice to be able to push yourself hard.  I used to always shy away from hiit workouts because they made me feel out of shape, but I am glad that I am finally conquering that fear.  My friend Mahea showed me a hiit warm-up that she does on the treadmill and from there I have taken off with it.

Today’s Workout is: Leg Day + Hiit

  • 3 x 20 Body weight Hip Thrusts
  • 3 x 20 Body weight Full Squats
  • 3 x 20 Body weight Back Extensions
  • 1 x 30 Side Lying Clams

My legs were still sore from Saturday’s sprint session on the elliptical / treadmill.  My calves are still sore from that workout.  I must have gone extra hard that day!

Hiit: 45 sec. + 15 sec. rest

  1. Butt Kicks
  2. Jump Squats
  3. Burpees
  4. Mountain Climbers
  5. Side Lunges
  6. Jumping Lunges

*Complete this circuit twice*

Hiit for Abs:

  • Mountain Climbers- 40 seconds
  • Forearm Plank- 20 seconds

Rest- 1 min.

  • Plank Jacks- 40 seconds
  • Forearm Plank- 20 seconds

Rest- 1 min.

  • Lateral Plank Walk- 40 seconds
  • Forearm Plank- 20 seconds

*Complete this circuit twice*

I finally installed a tabata timer app on my phone and I think it made the workout harder.  I must have been cutting a few seconds off before.  This timer will keep me honest 😉


Word of the Day:

evenfall– noun

  1. Twilight; dusk, the beginning of evening.

I hope you had a good Monday.  I rarely wake up excited for Monday tasks, but coffee fixes it every time 🙂  Thanks for joining me for our 30th Workout and Word of the Day!  Let’s keep showing up!  WE GOT THIS!!!
