If you are anything like me, your most productive time at the gym is the first 7 minutes on the elliptical. After that, it all goes down hill, especially if I've forgotten to bring my Us Weekly or my headphones. And since it is bikini season and I just so happen to have multiple beach vacations this summer, I decided it was time to get serious about my gym attendance. So on the days I go during lunch, I try and squeeze in 30 minutes of cardio, followed by a 10 minute arm workout (below).
I've found that unless I have a workout prepared for the day, I will just jump on the elliptical or treadmill and stare at the timer for 30 minutes. So I've been scouring the internet for good elliptical and treadmill HIIT workouts and found a few that looked interesting, combined and tweaked them into my new 30 Minute Summer Butt Elliptical Workout!
The colors designate which area of the legs & booty you're workin.
Blue = Glutes
Red = Hamstring & Glutes
Green = Calves, Hamstring & Glutes
Purple = Hamstring & Glutes
I am quite proud of this crazy HIIT challenge I put together and it is definitely harder than it looks. Plus it keeps you super busy and distracted since you are constantly changing the settings on the machine. I couldn't even read a magazine during this workout but the time flew by!
After that, if I am still motivated, I love doing this quick 10 Minute Arm Workout by Fit Sugar.
