Wake Up With HIIT

Waking up in the morning and getting yourself motivated for the day ahead can sometimes be a little difficult – which is why it is such a great time to get a workout done! Working out in the morning will wake you up and energise you for the day ahead.

With this in mind, I came up with a morning routine that I wouldn’t mind getting up and doing. Something fairly low impact that I can complete in the morning to increase my cardio activity a little (I complete this along side an evening session too, but don’t do it every morning).

*equipment needed*

Timings:
40 seconds of work
20 seconds of rest
