Interval Training Workout

Today’s workout is a follow up routine to yesterday’s Tear It Up Workout. In this workout I was focusing on the upper body and abs. This routine got pretty tough at the end, and in my last sequence of exercises I could barely finish it. But this is also a very fun routine because I incorporated some really cool new exercises that I came up with. I always try to get my creativity flowing when I come up with these challenging moves, because I think it makes exercising more fun when we don’t do the same old moves every single time.

This routine is about 25 minutes long and is made of 4 parts, 3 parts are interval training and one part is a time challenge.

Make sure you always do a good warm-up before starting to exercise.

Since I knew this workout is going to be extra tough I brought my favorite water cup with me, it always helps me to keep pushing when I am having a hard time. The cup says ” Mind is everything, what you think you become”. This is my general motto in life, I believe if we look around our life, we are exactly in a place where we thought our self into, no more no less.
