In this session Pace and Go will take you through your first loaded workout of the 21-Day Athlete program. One of the benefits of using free weights is that they increase the intensity of each movement and challenge your body to become stronger. Because free weights engage a greater amount of muscle mass to maintain balance and stability while performing an exercise, you also burn more calories.
2. HIIT Speed and Power
Build strength by working your fast twitch muscle fibers with quick bursts of speed and plyometrics. With challenging moves like plyometric push-ups and power lunges, plan to get nice and sweaty. Sarah designed this HIIT workout with optimized interval blocks to enable your body to burn calories post-workout by entering into a state of EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). Be sure to drink plenty of water during and post-workout.
