Love or Hate ‘Em, HIIT Workouts Work

So I personally have a love hate relationship with HIIT workouts. When Chalene is up on that stage, and the fire drill begins to sound, and she starts yelling and all her workout buddies are hi-fiving each other in excitement, and I know 40 minutes of maximum intensity is up, I start to get all freaked out and excited both. Freaked out because I know I’m about to dive into a swimming pool filled with blenders worth of exercise, and excited for the very same reason. There’s nothing like a HIIT workout to test your resolve, to show you what you got, what mental resolve you are bringing to the table.

I always finish them, which is awesome, but what about your guys? Anybody hate them, and if so, why?

    I love HIIT workouts – when they’re over! I do get really nervous before I start though. I feel like Im only really giving it my all towards the end when I’m more warmed up. Think I’m going to try doing the warm-up a few times before I start and see if that helps. How far are you into the program now? I’m just finishing my third week and I’m still loving it! Sounds like you’re doing good.

    I’m still on the Prep Schedule, but yes I love them and hate them. I hate them while I’m doing them, but I love it when it’s over and I got through it.

    I love them… at the beginning, it’s sticking with it that kills me. Great work and I love the blog! I want Turbo Fire so badly as I am a Turbo Jam lover, but want something new and exciting. Keep it up!

    Oh where have you been? This has been the most entertaining blog I’ve read in a long time. Hope you’ll come back soon.

    Note: drag yourself out of bed and workout in the morning. It will take you about a week to get used to, but if you have an endless supply of wake up calls at your disposal, it’s the best way to get your workout in, then move on with your day. :)
