30 Day Challenge: Day 15: Burpee Body Burn HIIT: 19 Minutes



Hi Everyone!

Today's workout was intense! It's day 15 of the 30 Day Workout Challenge, and I wanted to go hard. :) This workout will get your entire body working on high, with major fat burning. 

Prior to this workout I hopped on the treadmill for a 30 minute run. I got in 4 miles and felt great the entire time. I definitely felt the fatigue from my run when I was going through this routine! 

I am often asked about the benefits of doing cardio pre- or post-workout. Both methods are beneficial, so I like to switch it up. For this workout I think I would have been able to push harder through it if I did the cardio afterwards or split it into two miles pre, and two miles post. However, running or doing a thorough warm-up is also beneficial because your body is already running and ready to optimize your calorie burn. 

I hope you all enjoy today's workout! Keep checking in for the 30 Day challenge: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter
