Home Workout #5 – HIIT (Glutes Focus)

Time to Get Your Butt in Gear!

ROD_4793My inbox was flooded with requests for a booty workout.  So here you go!

Glutes HIIT circuit

This is a total body high intensity interval circuit, with emphasis on the booty! Total body interval circuits increase metabolic demand because they make your body work at a higher intensity. Metabolic workouts are the most effective way to burn calories (both during and AFTER your workout) and boost your metabolism, which means you will get leaner and stronger faster. But there is a catch: if you want to see changes in your physique, then you will have to exercise at 95-100% of your maximum capacity (i.e. "go all out", "go as fast as you can", "lift as heavy as you safely can"). In other words, you have to leave your comfort zone, which is why I lift heavy and include plenty of explosive exercises (e.g. star jumps, jump rope, squat jumps). You shouldn't be looking happy when you do these workouts.

Remember, heavy lifting (because muscle burns calories) and interval training are only part of the fat-burning equation. Diet is number one. Check out my healthy recipes to see what I eat.
