I've had several people ask me on Instagram (@thebargainblonde) what cardio plan I am doing. Just popping in really quickly to post the High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) portion of my workout. This is the very first thing I do during my workout. I'm working on a comprehensive post about my entire routine and weight loss progress so far and will post soon because I get that question a lot.
I found this 35 minute HIIT on Fit Sugar, which has a ton of different cardio routines to fit your needs/wants. If the elliptical isn't your thing, search for something else that is. They have great printable cardio programs on that site. Anyway, more on that in a future post. Here is my elliptical HIIT work out:
I follow this with 25 minutes more of cardio and weight trainng, but I will explain more about that later. If you're looking for a cardio plan that burns a lot of calories in not a lot of time, I highly recommend this one to get you started. Warning: mins 18-23:30 are absolute hell, but you'll feel so good after.
I've been doing this routine since Memorial Day and it still kicks my butt every day and I have every interval memorized now. I used to bring my printed paper to the gym with me every day. Ha!
OK, let me know if you have any questions. Happy cardio-ing.
