Quickie 3 x 3 HIIT

Saturday mornings after teaching three back to back classes the last thing I want to do is my own workout.

:: What I want to do! ::

But I have come to realize how critical it is to stick by my own training regime and not trick myself into thinking I'm getting a workout in by showing 1-3 reps of an exercise then coaching others to do 50! The bottom line is a focused 30 minute effort is 300x better than spending 2 hours at the gym watching the clock tick by. The truth is I know to listen to my body - if I'm still not feeling it at all after the first 12 minutes I stop

I did this workout from start to stop in 20 minutes and felt the burn for days after - LOVE that.
