Weekend Warrior HIIT Workout

I really enjoyed doing the upper body work the other day. I thought I would do a cardio HIIT for the first part and then throw in a bonus upper body super set circuit. The first part will be cardio legs with some upper body moves to get you ready for the bonus. You can hold a weight that is challenging enough for your body, but light enough that you can get through the entire minute of each move. You will get a 15 second rest before moving on to the next move. I have it in 3 sections. We will go through 1 round of each second and then repeat for a second time before moving on to the bonus. I will be using my 30 lb sandbag, 15 – 12 – 10 and 8 lb dumbbells and my steel bell. You use the equipment you have available to you, and work at your fitness level. Remember to take breaks when you need to.
