Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far. The girls didn’t have school yesterday (any day without virtual school is a GIFT) so we enjoyed the long weekend and took a hike at Mt. Lemmon. The weather was in the 50s and it felt amazing!
Yesterday also marked the start of our Home Workout Warrior challenge! I was flooded with your amazing Instagram check-ins and am so happy you’re enjoying the workouts so far. It’s not too late to join in the challenge! Check out this link for all of the details and each check in gets you an entry for our massive giveaway from Inside Tracker, Equilibria, Daily Harvest, Organifi, and me. 🙂 Here’s the link to sign up.
Today is Workout #2, which is a bodyweight HIIT workout. I sent the PDF and video tutorials for the challenge, but if you’re looking for a follow-along option, here’s a video that you can do. This is a super short HIIT workout designed to get an awesome sweat, build strength and power, and ride those endorphins the rest of the day. Always check with a doctor before making any fitness changes. Honor your body and modify as needed. (I share lots of modification options in the full video!)
Here’s what the workout looks like:

Tips for doing HIIT workouts at home:
– Make sure you have enough space and that you’re wearing supportive and comfortable shoes
– Check out the floor! I like to do HIIT workouts on surfaces that aren’t so hard, like on carpet, a mat, or on a rug. It feels more gentle on my joints when I’m jumping.
– Don’t be afraid to modify and use what you have available. I share lots of modification options in the video above, but one of my favorite modifications for plank position movements (like burpees, plank jacks, and mountain climbers) is to put hands on the wall to decrease the pressure on your core.
Can you do HIIT workouts while pregnant?
Always check with a doctor before making any fitness changes. Honor your body and modify as needed. If HIIT workouts are something you did pre-pregnancy and your doctor gives the ok, focus on movement instead of trying to get your heart rate to its max during the intervals. You should always be able to speak a full phrase (example: say your entire address) without running out of breath. Modify any extreme core work or jumping to decrease the impact.
I hope you guys love this workout!
Please let me know if you give it a try!
