Happy Friday! I have been loving circuits and HIIT workouts lately and here is another upper body HIIT circuit that I did this week. I like to hit all body parts in a week along with some conditioning to maintain or improve my cardiovascular endurance without having to do countless cardio sessions. Brooke the cardio queen is the thing of the past and now I am all about building and maintaining lean muscle mass, training for functionality and feeling my best! Personally, I have found that if I stick 2-3 higher intensity workouts with weights into my routine, I see quicker results, feel happier and don’t get bored in the gym as often. Just like nutrition, there is no one perfect or one size fits all fitness routine. It takes time to figure out how your body reacts to certain movements, intensities and styles of working out. The more variations you try and stick to, the easier it will be to figure out! Focus on a routine that you can stick to, gives you all the endorphins and can be changed and modified as time goes on.
