10-Min HIIT Workout


Sundance 2020 has officially arrived in Park City, and the festival kicked off with Taylor Swift in the movie Miss Americana and the Obamas in Crip Camp. The whole town is a buzz, and I have a few friends staying with me for the festival. I need all the energy I can get this week, since a typical day includes running nonstop from films to new restaurants, and of course, finding a few minutes throughout the day to fit in some movement.

To have more energy throughout the day, try “movement snacking,” which is breaking up your movement into brief, “snack-sized” portions. Research shows that breaking up your day with small bursts of nutritious movement can reduce your risk of early death by up to 35%.

The American Heart Association recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week for good health and well-being. But new guidelines are showing that 75 minutes of high-intensity exercise (through HIIT training) can be just as effective.

HIIT is a simple concept. After warming up, push yourself with bursts of high intensity, then pull back the intensity to a steady state. Burst…then pull back, and repeat. This type of training will help burn the fat on your body, including your belly, in the fastest time. HIIT workouts push you out of your comfort zone, and that’s when change starts to happen…in your workouts, your body, and your weight.

Today’s HIIT routine is 10-minutes and can fit into even the busiest schedule. This routine is convenient because it utilizes simple movements done quickly and with purpose. Just be sure not to sacrifice proper form! Each motion is done rapidly, focusing on speed, form, and technique…followed by an active recovery period. 

Remember…movement is cumulative! Those short times you spend moving throughout the day add up to big results! So, start to change the way you think about movement and don’t make the mistake of thinking that only long-duration workouts matter.

That’s right… In less time than it takes to make your morning smoothie, you can surge fresh oxygen through your body and brain, build and shape muscle and rev your metabolism.
