Three Workout Options To Try Today

by Courtney on March 10, 2012

I don’t know about you, but Saturdays are one of my favorite days of the week to get a great workout in. I usually have a little extra time on my hands, which gives a few more options as to what I feel like doing.

Are you planning on working up a sweat today but maybe not quite sure what you feel like doing? Well, have no fear! I’ve got three options for you today, with each one focusing on a slightly different area of exercise. No matter what you’re in the mood for today, there should be something for just about everyone! So now…

Workout #1 – Cardio & Strength

  1. Start with 20 minutes of HIIT (5 minute warm up, 1 minute at a maximum intensity, 1 minute recovery, repeat 5 rounds, 5 minute cool down)

  3. Finish with a Quick Abs Circuit.
  4. Cool down with some light stretching.
