30 Minute Upper Body HIIT Dumbbell Workout!

workouts Aug 22, 2018

Working out for an 60+ minutes every day is for the birds! Unless you’re training for a sport, fitness competition, or some type of race, it’s just not necessary!

I want to tell you a quick story…

During my competition days, I was spending almost 2 hours in the gym 6-7 days a week!!! I was worn down, felt like crap, and wasting so much precious time.

Even after I decided to get out of competing, I continued to workout that way because it was the only way I knew how and I thought that’s what you had to do to see results!

SPOILER ALERT…I was wrong!

Life Got Busy!

There was a point when adult life punched me square in the face! Do you feel me on this?

I found myself planning a wedding, working, managing a business, making time for family, and trying to find enough time for sleep. So those long gym workouts became less frequent and I am so thankful for that.

I honestly wasn’t enjoying those long workouts anymore and felt like I was just going through the motions to try to stay in shape! Since my time was much more limited and valuable, I decided to get created!

Quick & Effective Workouts!

Through lots of research and multiple fitness certifications, I began to realize how awesome quick and effective workouts can be! I was getting the same results as spending 60+ minutes in the gym every day, I enjoyed them 100 times more, and I saved tons of precious time!

Very quickly this became part of my life.

1 on 1 Coaching Application

Upper Body HIIT Dumbbell Workout

I wanted to give you an example of one of these workouts so you can try it for yourself! This is one that I actually did in my kitchen the other day and really enjoyed it so I wanted to share!

It is designed to target your upper body using a set of dumbbells and a HIIT style of workout. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training which is short periods of high intensity work followed by short periods of active rest.

Perform 3 rounds of the following exercises and it should take you about 30 minutes. It is ok to push yourself a little bit but make sure you listen to your body and don’t do anything you are not comfortable with or that is outside your comfort zone.

I also included some pictures in case you are unsure about the different exercise names!
