    Current weight: 74kgs

    I have over trained a bit over the last week and am feeling a bit burnt out so will be picking my training back up tomorrow. After i have trained i will write down the HIIT programme that i followed and i would love any feed back people have with regards to HIIT.


    The hardest thing i have been struggle with this week is sugar cravings! My insulin sensitiviy is thru the roof so i will be cutting out sugar and high/refined carbs for the next 12 weeks to give my body a chance to retore itself...


    This way fo life is so liberating!

    Good morning! it is such a stunning day today!


    I got up at 5am to do my HIIT. It started off well by doing a few mobility exercises taken from Magnificent Mobility by Eric Cressey and Mike Robertson. (I am addicted to doing the mobility exercises - they have improved my strength, coordination, mobility, flexibility and breath control 10 fold) I recommend doing them 2x a day.


    My HIIT is as follows:


    3 sets of 8 spilt squats holding each squat for 2 seconds (30 - 45seconds rest in-between sets)

    Then 3 mins rest after the 3rd set.


    Circuit A:

    A1: Mountain climber with ladies press-up

    A2: Step Ups on to bench with a core twist - using a resistance band

    (perform as many sets of 6 reps in 10mins)


    Circuit B:

    B1: Full body weight squats (continuous motion)

    B2: Face pulls using a resistance band

    (perform as many sets of 8 reps in 10mins)


    Intervals:

    Warm up: front ladder x1

    Right side ladder x1

    Left side ladder x2


    Front hurdles x1

    Right side hurdles x1

    Left side hurdles x1


    10 rounds of 20 seconds sprint with 1min recovery. (I know you are ment to do 30seconds of sprinting but the area I have to do the sprints in just isn't long enough)


    Cool down:

    5 mins walking

    Mobility exercises

    Yoga stretches for hips, groin and hamstrings


    But this morning I injured my either my Erector spinare or my Larissimus dorsi muscles or I had stretched the thoracolumabar fascisa.


    This ment that I was unable to sprintů..I then packed up and made my way home where I did what I could of the mobility exercises.


    I love HIIT training - it absolutely wears you out - what Its quick and effective.


    I am going to take up brisk walking for the 5 days and give my back time to heal before restarting HIIT training next Wednesday.


    I will be doing the above work out 3 times a week - Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.


    With Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday as active rest days - 2x mobility exercises and 1 hour brisk walking.
