Seconds ProThis is one of my favorite apps to use for any HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), Tabata, Circuit Training, and more. It’s called the Seconds Pro App and can be easily downloaded from the Apps Store right to your iPhone, iPad and more. Aside from a Gymboss, this provides a whole new experience to your workout. Just plug in your exercises, timings, intervals, music and viola. For me personally, using timers like these keep me 100% committed to performing at the highest intensity. Additionally, unlike counting reps, timing my intervals makes me competitive and accountable to perform even harder. It forces me to keep pushing until “3.2.1…[rest]”.

When it comes to burpees, many would agree that it’s a true love-hate relationship. Why?

Love:
Burpees are one of the single most amazing exercises on the planet and are highly respected within the fitness community. They require extreme effort using just your body weight and can be done anywhere at anytime. Known for their powerful results, burpees will challenge every muscle in your body. They are an intense combination of both strength training and cardio training which makes them a popular choice by all military forces, crossfit aficionados, extreme athletes, and fitness junkies. In fact, a 10 minute burpee session alone can burn approximately 100 calories. I’m positive you have heard the saying “sweat is fat crying”, right? Perhaps “calorie murdering” is more like it. continue reading

I’m always excited to try new exercises that challenge both my body and new muscle groups. This was yesterday’s workout. Awesome workout – no gym required! Just stairs, the great outdoors and me. It was super hard, and definitely challenging as it required stability, coordination and body strength.

It’s absolutely imperative that during any workout routine you remain 100% focused on your technique and form. Mastering both should be your ultimate goal first, then speed and reps second. Poor form may result in bodily injuries, so trust me when I say “focus”! Plus, proper form guarantees an awesome workout and maximum results.
