So yesterday I had HIIT (high intensity interval training) as my second training session of the day. At just 18 days out from my comp, I consider it a small victory if I do intervals, let alone high intensity ones, but nevertheless I thought you might like a peak at one of the many options I use.
If I can’t be bothered to go to the gym (particularly if I’ve already been that day) and feel kettlebells won’t cut it, I’ll take my dog, head over to the local playing field and sprint the long sides of the pitch, then walk or jog to recover on the short ends.
Here’s a video (sorry they’re sideways on, I don’t have time to work out how to rotate)
And then some ideas for extras:
The cost of this session? Free ninety-nine! £0.00. Nada. No excuses! Thanks to my husband for the idea and for videoing!
What do you do for intervals? Do you have any great ideas for free workouts which don’t need equipment?
