This lower body hiit & strength training workout made me sweat like crazy and left me sore the next day! When you do long workouts like this one, you can’t help but feel at least a little sore the next day, and thats completely okay with me.It is very effective at burning fat and toning your thighs and glutes. Plus, it helps you gain muscle. It’s a good sign that you pushed yourself hard enough. Just make sure to never workout the same muscle group(s) on consecutive days. You can always do a cardio workout, upper body strength training or core workouts. It’s completely up to you.
Strength training is one of the best ways to train if you’re trying to gain muscle, lose weight, tone your body, speed up your metabolism and more. It really is my favorite type of training. I have seen nothing but great results from strength training. HIIT is one of the fastest ways to lose weight, so I’ve combined strength training with HIIT in this workout. Trust me you’re going going to feel it!
I love the feeling after a good workout. I always feel accomplished and feel like I’m ready to take on any tasks there are during the day. My mood is better, my energy level is higher, I feel less anxious and less stressed. I know I just did something good for my body and my mind!
