Workout Wednesday- 24 minute Home HIIT Circuit

Happy Workout Wednesday.  I honestly can’t believe the first month of 2018 is already over!

I don’t know about you, but the start of this year was a little slow for me to get back into the swing of things.  After the holidays are over, I kind of lose energy .  It’s just now that I am starting to feel like my diet is back to normal and I have a consistent workout schedule.

I struggle to get to the gym during this time of year.  It seems so crowded during the start of the New Year with everyone making their resolutions.  My gym is fairly small and I have seen many new faces there.  Don’t get me wrong, its great to see many people getting healthy, but sometimes I just want to do a quick workout from home.

I have had several questions recently on how I fit in workouts with my busy schedule.  The short answer is I get up really early.  Seriously, like 4:00am.  (I can hear you groaning from here.)  I know it sounds early but your body really does adjust after a few weeks.  By working out in the morning, I don’t have anything that can come up unexpectedly and prevent me from going later.  Many times I just don’t have the energy or motivation after working a 12 hour shift.  Setting that alarm 2 hours earlier is much easier for me and is what has worked to keep me consistent.

Secondly,  I do home workouts.  I try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise in a day.  If I get home late, I will just workout at home.  And no, I don’t have a home gym.  All I use is dumbbells, an exercise ball, a yoga mat and resistance bands.  I have included an example workout that I do at home below.  Do all 12 exercises, resting for just 10 second between each, than repeat 1-2 more times!
