Monday Outdoor HIIT Workout

Happy Monday!

It’s a new week, and I’m freakin’ excited about it. 3 day weekend!

I have a confession (I feel like I confess MANY things to my blog), I really haven’t been diggin’ the Erin Stern 4 Week Trainer program. It’s been incredibly boring, I can’t stand the amount of repetitive lifting. Don’t get me wrong, I think the program itself is pretty great for beginners, and has a pretty good format, but I personally need more cardio and HIIT training. I like being out of breathe and elevating my heart rate for extended periods of time. I feel like the harder it is to breathe, that’s when the most work is being done. I like lifting too, but not 4-5 days a week. I would rather lift about 2-3 days a week, incorporate plyo HIIT training into every workout whether it’s for 15 minutes or 45 minutes, and do cardio about 4-5 days a week; distances from 2 miles a day to 13 miles a day.

Today’s workout is inspired by the awesome weather that we’ve been having! You can do this outdoors, all you need is your body and a jump rope. Super awesome cardio and bodyweight plyo exercises. Here is the workout if you can’t read the exercises in the photo:

-1 minute jump ropemondayhiit
-10 Burpees
-1 minute jump rope
-20 Curtsey Lunge to Jump Squat
-1 minute jump rope
-20 Sumo Squat with Leg Lift
-1 minute jump rope
-10/10 Backward Lunge to Kick
-1 minute jump rope
-40 Mountain Climbers


I plan on going to a run today, ranging anywhere from 4-8 miles. I’m gonna let my body be the judge of how far I’ll run. The route I plan on taking is completely paved with plenty of elevation inclines and drops. If I only run 4 miles I will be doing the above workout, if I run 8 miles…. TO HELL WITH A SECOND WORKOUT!

I hope everyone enjoys their Monday, have a great week and stay tuned for more updates!
