Flying 40's

Helllllllo! Happy Sunny Thursday, Everyone. 

Today I wanted to share a new workout with you. It is a cardio one today, so no weights needed. We did a variation of this workout in my spin class last night and it left me really, really sweaty.  I think my favorite thing about this kind of interval training is you can do it with any form of cardio. You just have to focus on getting your heart rate and your speed up during each 40 second sprint. Focus on your recovery for those short 20 seconds and then get after it all over again. You can do this outside, on a treadmill, elliptical, bike, swimming pool, etc. 


Personally, I love any kind of interval work. I would much rather get my sprint on, recover, and repeat as opposed to slogging around for an hour long jog. 

Listen to this old school rap mix while you do it. 

Enjoy !

Kristen said...

this sounds so fabulous. seriously every time i think to do an interval thing, i always make it too hard on myself and give up, but 40 seconds sprint and 20 seconds jog sounds perfect to me!

Definitely a fan of the sprint/recover! Way to adapt & adjust from spin class!

Interval training is the best thing ever! I love interval training on the treadmill! Adding hill work to it is killer as well!
