Today's Workout is a 20 minute Total Body HiiT Workout that uses the TRX Suspension Trainer.
The TRX is perfect for home and hotel room workouts because it's portable. You can even use it outside!
With the TRX, you use your bodyweight to create muscle-building resistance.
- Shock-absorbing surface, such as interlocking floor mats.
- A TRX
- I like to drink BCAAs. Click here to read why.
Keep this circuit mega-INTENSE; otherwise, you are not going to benefit from metabolism-boosting effects of HIIT. Maximize fat-burning by doing this workout fasted as soon as you wake up … and stay fasted for at least 2 hours after the workout (you can drink your BCAAs). Increase the intensity by adjusting your body position to increase or decrease the resistance. Remember, you want resistance because resistance builds muscle, and muscle burns calories! The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn.
Set your timers for 20 minutes. MINIMIZE YOUR REST PERIODS BETWEEN EXERCISES (~10 seconds). The goal is to do as many rounds as possible (AMRAP) in 20 minutes. Try to do 2 rounds if you are a beginner. I was able to do 3 rounds in 20 minutes (I sipped my BCAAs between the rounds). Remember not to do more than 30 minutes because you want to keep the intensity HIGH.
