HIIT IT! πŸ‘Š
I have a lot of girls asking me what my training routine is like & how I stay in shape, so I have decided I will be posting a whole lot more recipes, fitness tips, insights and workouts! I am currently studying my personal training qualifications so I’m not legally allowed to tell you what to do YET πŸ˜› but I can provide as much info as I can to help you girls πŸ’—
So tonight & I am starting with HIIT, easily one of my favourite workout styles with extremely rewarding benefits for those who push themselves which is going to be all of you πŸ˜πŸ‘­ 

The general HIIT technique requires alternating bursts of intense anaerobic exercise, followed by short & sometimes active, recovery periods. 
Eg. Treadmill intervals of 30 second sprints at a speed of 10 followed by 30 seconds active rest periods at speed 6. 
Repeat 15 times. πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ
Keep in mind that HIIT training is a very broad spectrum so a variety of exercises can be performed using the foundation.
I will be starting to post my HIIT workouts on instagram for you all
πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†
Okay so here is the BEST part of HIIT training & why I love it πŸ’Ÿ
πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
EPOC (Excess Post Exercise Oxygen Consumption) or as I prefer to call it “the after burn”πŸ”₯ this phase increases the body’s need for oxygen during effort and creates an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery. EPOC releases fat burning hormones which target your subcutaneous and intramuscular fat stores, in then, increasing your metabolic rate so your body burns more fat during and after exercise for up to 48 HOURS!!!! How good is that! πŸ™Œ

Day 12

What is your favorite healthy food and why? Now find the nutritional information for that food and list: the number of servings, the amount of calories, the total fat (if any), the amount of sodium (if any), the total carbs (if any), and the grams of sugar (if any). Think about how good that food is for you and compare it to the junk food you listed on day 11.

Aside from just general fruits and veggies, one of my favorite cooked healthy foods is chili. My masterpieces usually end up similar to this recipe: http://m.allrecipes.com/recipe/22919/insanely-easy-vegetarian-chili
which, per serving, has about 160 calories, 3g of fat, 29g of carbs, 7g of protein and 425mg (17%) of sodium. I usually eat it on a little bed of brown rice. I love that it’s healthy, easy to make and super filling. Much better than cheesecake! *sighs dreamily*
