Full Body Superset Bodyweight HIIT Circuit
Happy Monday! How are you? How was the weekend?!Week 2 of #holidayhiit20! Get the Full Body Superset Workout #ontheblog! @fitapproach #sweatpink Click To Tweet
Last week we talked about scheduling a workout during the holiday season. Today, we are chatting bodyweight workouts. on SaturdayNow, I’m allllll about lifting heavy shit. I PR’d my sumo DL on Monday and worked my conventional. However, that does not mean I don’t love (love to hate…) a good bodyweight workout. I usually start my beginning clients doing bodyweight workouts and I tend to go back to bodyweight for at least a couple workouts a month. I think bodyweight workouts really help promote a mind-muscle connection. Plus, bodyweight moves still deliver a solid workout when you are without a gym and/or equipment.
HOLIDAY HIIT 20 TIP #2: Don’t be sad about a lack of equipment or gym. Promote your mind-muscle connection and try a bodyweight workout! Share your workouts on social and use hashtag #holidayhiit20!
WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS WORKOUT?
The cool thing about this full body superset is that you could totally add weights when you have access to them. Because of the superset structure, this workout is going to deliver a ton, in just a short amount of time, especially thanks to the burner set at the end.

How was your weekend?!! Friday…I know we had cereal for dinner and watched a movie? I can’t remember! Saturday, I spent some time in the gym, ate breakfast, then spent a good portion of the afternoon with my siblings, shopping. We had a blast. I saw the Hubby for about 30 minutes while we ate dinner, before he left for a party. I spent the evening redecorating our office and the Hubby’s computer room. I’m giving him a bar cart and a bit of a makeover for Christmas, so I took advantage of him being away to try out a few things! Finished the night with present wrapping and a Christmas movie! Sunday morning, I woke up at 5am and couldn’t go back to sleep. So I did all kinds of random things, made some returns and started painting the office. The Hubby helped mid-morning and we got over half done! Then, I laid down and did pretty much nothing while watching Home Alone 2, online Christmas present shopping and typing this post!
I have a full week at work this week. Then I get a few days off next week and the week after! Can’t wait!
SO, TELL ME:
