After having my first child, a new job, and other activities that keep me busy, it is sometimes difficult to find a full hour to exercise. Sometimes, it is difficult to find any time at all. However, it is important to keep training if I want to stay in shape and healthy. This challenge has propelled me into finding more innovative methods to train when time is of the essence.
In this article, I will show you a way to work out using a High Intensity Interval Training method that can accompany with your martial arts training. Since time is a valuable resource and there is not much of it, this workout will be timed.
High Intensity Interval Training / Martial Arts
The first thing we will do is set our timer for our workout. For simplicity sake, the workout routine is broken down below:
- 1:00 Intense Training | 1:00 Rest
- 2 sets
- 5 rounds
Each exercise will run for a minute. You can increase this as you have time. Following the 1 minute High Intensity Interval Training, rest for one minute.
You can follow the workout below:
In this set, you will perform the action alternating sides.
- Jab – Cross – Burpee
- Round Kick – Sprawl
- Hit the heavy bag as fast as you can while running in place.
Perform this workout at least 5 times.
It is important to make the time to exercise. Doing so helps you keep in shape and to stay healthy. As we take on more responsibility, we have less time to take care of ourselves. High Intense Interval Training gives us the ability to workout hard in less time. High intensity training in less time can produce lasting results, keep you in shape, and help you feel better.Tags: burpee, cross, healthy, heavy bag, high intensity interval training, jab, martial arts, results, round kick, rounds, sets, shape, sprawl, timed
