of time. If you are just getting started with HIIT workouts, try just doing some bodyweight exercises (think push ups, air squats, burpees, lunges etc) in your HIIT and throw in weighted exercises once you have gotten use to the pace of a high intensity workout. Aim to include some combo moves in your HIIT workout (moves that work many muscle groups at the same time). By using combo moves, you’re really doing double duty, because not only are you getting your heart rate up and working cardio endurance, but since you are using multiple muscle groups you are exponentially amping up the calorie and fat burn by throwing in muscle endurance at the same time. Think moves like dead lifts, wall balls, burpees, thrusters (squat to overhead press), ground to overhead with a weight or weighted bar, etc. Combining these tips will keep you away from the diet mindset and into a healthy mindset where you are using food as fuel while also getting stronger; that feeling you get on the inside from getting into a healthier routine is just as big of an accomplishment as the number changing on the scale! -Hope Cowgill Pedraza Owner, inBalance BASI Certified Comprehensive Pilates Instructor NASM Certified Personal Trainer NAFC Nutrition Coach 210-852-4020 inbalancesanantonio.com Location: 23535 IH 10 West Suite 1203 San Antonio, TX 78257
