Day 2: The 30 Day Sweat Challenge Hiitgirl Workout

posted on Monday, 1st September 2014 | find under Tamara, Fitness, Nutrition
With a weekly class held in-store and an online fitness video to support your training, The 30 Day Sweat Challenge is centred on the highly effective workout of Hiitgirl founder Susan Dyson, created exclusively for Get Fit 4 Free.
Book your in-store Tuesday class the Monday before (by calling the store), throughout The 30 Day Sweat Challenge. If you can't make it in-store then you can workout at home with our online video.
Each 30-minute online class features 10 moves. Each move has three levels and is performed for 30 seconds, followed by 30 seconds rest. Each level is progressively harder but if you’re finding it hard, there’s no problem with repeating the level you feel comfortable with.

What is the Hiitgirl workout?
 Sweaty Betty sat down with Susan to understand what HIIT is all about....

HIIT is really big right now, with its many benefits supported by the latest scientific research,” explains Susan.
So what is HIIT?
“High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) describes any workout that alternates intense bursts of activity with periods of less intense activity or even complete rest. Unlike typical aerobic training where heart rates and intensities stay the same for long periods, HIIT is all about working at or near your maximum for a short time.”
What to look for in a good HIIT workout…
“The best HIIT exercises use large muscles groups and include such things as squats, press-ups, burpees and starbursts, with a typical workout involving 30 seconds of exercise then 30 seconds of rest, repeated 5 to 30 minutes. Even though the workouts are very short, HIIT is guaranteed to get you hot, sweaty and breathless, and the results are well worth the effort.”
The Hiitgirl workout…
“The Hiitgirl workout combines 15 minutes of muscle-toning moves with 15 minutes of fat-torching, metabolic moves. We do the workout barefoot and focus on simple, natural movements without the need for machines or steel weights.”
