#MovementMonday: Freestyle HIIT with Michelle Vahey

#MovementMonday: Freestyle HIIT with Michelle Vahey

No TRX? No problem! Michelle is back, this time with an anywhere, anytime circuit…

This post comes to you from TRX instructor and co-founder of VIDA Performance Michelle Vahey.

Note: For this HIIT workout (High Intensity Interval Training) you will do a 40/20 split — 40 sec on 20 sec rest  (30- to 60-second rest between rounds), 3 rounds total. 

The routine is only 20 minutes, so keep the intensity high!!

LUNGE JUMPS 

Make sure, when you are on the lunge, that both legs are 90 degrees. Dont let your front knee pass your toes, use your arms to help you jump and keep alternating legs as you land with both feet at the same time. Torso remains upright, shoulders and hips remain aligned.

WIDE LEGGED BURPEE 

 Make sure to land on a wide-squat position, with your torso up. This type of burpee will work your back side.

PLIÉ SQUAT JUMPS WITH HEEL TAP

Keep legs wide to work your inner thighs. Make sure your knees bend towards your middle toe. Tap your heels on the jump and land softly on plié squat.
 

SURVIVORS 

Start on a low plank, making sure your shoulders stay right over your elbows. Keep legs, core and glutes engaged the entire time. With one arm at a time, extend to a high plank, making sure your hips stay parallel at all times. Lower yourself to a low plank, alternating arms.

PUSHUP TO SIDE PLANK

Starting on high plank pushup position, lower yourself leading with your chest, bringing the hips with you. As you push up you will rotate to a side plank. Come back to high plank and repeat. Alternate sides.

Goal is to keep spinal stability (don’t let head hang or hips sag).

SKATERS

Jumping laterally, land and hold for balance for a few seconds, then jump to the other side. Keep torso from collapsing and maintain a flat back. Power comes from the inner thigh.

V UPS With ALTERNATING LEGS

Start by laying on your back ,arms over your head. Using your tummy muscles, sit up to create a V, tapping your right hand to left toes. Go back to starting point and repeat, alternating legs. Stay long and tall the entire time. Don’t round your lower back. Find your sit-bones when you come up.

BICYCLE CRUNCHES 

Starting on your back, bring hands behind your head. Open elbows wide. Press head into your hands and keep chin parallel (don’t let chin collapse towards your chest). Maintain your core engaged as you lift your legs and chest and bicycle right shoulder towards left knee and switch back and forth. Goal is to keep chest nice and open. Don’t let elbow collapse in and don’t compromise your lower back by rounding. Don’t forget to breathe.
