Sweet, sweet summertime. Exciting, right? Except, maybe you've fallen short on your promise to kick your fitness game into high gear for the summer. No need to panic though, because we have just the total body workout for you.
SISSFiT, founded by athlete and fitness-enthusiast sisters Lauren and Kelly, is a brand created to empower and educate women to live stronger, healthier, and more fit lives. These inspiring sisters shared with us their Ultimate Summer Workout, a combination of HIIT treadmill work and total body circuit training, to help get you into shape this season and all year round.
Here's how it works: Begin with the 26 minute HIIT Treadmill workout, rest for 3 minutes, and then follow with the 16 min total body circuit. Instructions below.
First, find your jog pace — a comfortable pace that you can sustain for long periods of time. Here's some help to get you started:
- 4.0-4.5 MPH: New Runner
- 5.0-5.5 MPH: Casual Runner
- 6.0-6.5 MPH: Intermediate Runner
- 7.0-7.5 MPH: Advanced Runner
Now that you've determine your jog pace, fill in the 'your speed' column using your personal jog pace and apply any speed increases to this pace (e.g. 5.0 MPH jog pace + 0.5 = 5.5 MPH).
'Walk' should be between 3.0-4.0 MPH
Perform each of these exercises for 50 seconds followed by 10 seconds rest. Complete 4 rounds for a total of 16 minutes.
