Boulder Shoulder!

I am back with another workout post (#MondayMotivation FTW!) This one is something I tried out at home last week because I was running behind schedule as far as my writing was concerned, and I had not stepped foot inside the gym all week. This workout is a quick, basic and super duper easy HIIT routine that I combined along with some basic shoulder moves. Take a look at it, try it out on a day you’re running short of time or don’t want to leave the comfort of your home. Print it out if you want to because you totally can :) Note- I did this after a 3km brisk walk. Add in some jumping jacks and high knees to warm up before you start your HIIT. Also, do not forget to stretch!  Monday Motivation has been served. Have a fabulous week :)

A Full Body HIIT Favorite

I am back after a vacation, and I am SO excited to get back to life here. I’ve been inspired to do so many new things, I cannot wait to get started. Plus I’m stoked about hitting the gym and switching on that beast mode again :) We walked around 20km everyday for 2 weeks and even cycled around Rome and got back with great tans *tee hee* I had expected some weight gain during the vacation, but I’ve got back more defined than before. So of course I want to work out more and set new standards of fitness for myself. Starting off with this HIIT today – NOTE- This requires great stamina and needs to be done with only 10sec intervals between each exercise. Do it at your own pace, it gets easy and less painful as you get used to it (which took me 2 weeks LOL)…

Busting Myths Related To HIIT

“Oooh HIIT! I can save time and lose weight AND get a tone with only an HIIT routine! Life is sorted.” If you’ve said this to yourself at any given point in your lives, you need to read what I have to say. I should have written this earlier, my bad. I’ve been getting a lot of DMs and mails asking me to sort out HIIT workouts because you know, “I don’t wanna go to the gym I get too lazy” While I’m happy that you’re trying to stay fit and healthy, I request you to read this before you commit yourself to an HIIT routine. HIIT is filled with delusions of grandeur. I’m going to bust a few myths, and I hope I can help those of you who wish to take up this form of exercising. Myth 1 – The more I work out (HIIT) the better it is…

My Favorite HIIT Routine

All those who’ve been with me on social media know about my love for HIITs. I started sharing my results with everyone when I realised the exercises were working for me, and I give all the credits of the tone and definition I’ve achieved now to my beloved HIITs. I had a set of 10-15 routines with me, and I followed them religiously for the last 2 years. Over the months I have found a favorite (designed by Kris Gethin), and today I thought was a good day to share it with you. Note-  If you’re just starting, make sure you don’t overdo it the first day. Try repeating the circuits only gradually, one day at a time, if in case you feel that your body can’t take 2-3 circuits on the first day. The first week will leave you a little sore, but it’s worth it. The idea is to get used to…

HIIT Benefits- See results of your workout in half the time!

All those who’ve known me from social media know that I have been a fan of HIIT workouts since December 2015. What started off as something I took up because it was JUST TOO COLD TO WORK OUT IN THE OPEN, has now become a lifestyle.  I had stamina on my side to make this a not-so-difficult activity, and I guess that had a lot, maybe everything to do with the results that I saw. Many people joined in thinking “Hey, 10 minutes instead of 1 hour at the gym? HELL YES I AM DOING THIS!” This is the first point where everyone went wrong. I wasn’t surprised when people gave up…there was so much that they did not understand! I then made it a point to personally reach out to people and tell them how to go about it. I am glad to say it made some difference. I…

Five-Ten-Fifteen

What a fun workout I stumbled upon! I finished work a little early and had some time on my hands to go through new workout routines. Plus the usual has become a little boring. I wanted to try something new. Till swim season starts, I am making do with a combination of HIITs and running. This little gem I found comes like a breath of fresh air :) It looks easy, but let me warn you- 4 sets and you will be sweating. 5th set is when you feel the pain. I ended up doing 6 because hahahahha ADRENALINE! Good luck folks! Have fun :)

Fit in Fifteen

Hello there!!  I am back with another fitness post! It’s been long, blame it on the chaotic schedule. Even my personal workout regime has been a little wonky. I run when I get time, HIITs are a little difficult right now with a muscle tear in the right arm. I can’t wait for summers when I will get back to my running-gymming-swimming routine once again. 3 hours of pure me time in the morning. WONDERFUL! I am also considering cycling (the boyfriend has been a source of inspiration) Let’s see how that goes. This one is a quick HIIT routine I thought I’d share with you. It was something I did recently, and boy oh boy was it mad! 15 minutes, a great sweat session and you’re set for 2 days :D Good luck folks!

The Guilt After Diwali- HIIT Workouts

After a whole bunch of weddings and Diwali I’m feeling guilty about all the carbs that I have stuffed myself with. Which is probably why you’d see me at the gym for over 2 hours 4 times a week (those following me on Snapchat (@dumbbellsndrama) know what I mean) Plus I have less than 20 days to prepare for a 21km that I recently signed up for. Fortunately I have found my comfort zone at the gym, and Diwali or no Diwali, I think it’s time to step up the workout game.

HIIT- Home Workout

I have been a little caught up, sorry about not posting anything in this section earlier. To be honest I have only been running- there is no problem that a good run can’t cure. I even clocked a good 5km in 24min the other day I was extremely frustrated with things around me. So yeah, hey, I am not complaining! 

Work It Out!

Hello there! I’m back with some fitness gyaan. I found this particular HIIT exercise on Pinterest, and have made no changes to it whatsoever. It looks difficult, which is why I wanted to try it in the first place (have had to increase the intensity of workouts after the obstacle race I completed 2 weeks ago that had me running 12km on the hill, along with rope climbing, wall climbing, bar crossing, crawling and a whole lot of other jazz. Running on plain ground after that has been a JOKE)
