Ok, so we were really good lately: in the last few months, we trained with Sayonara, our Nike coach who tortured us every Thursday with the new NTC app, and her incredible discipline. We never sweated this much before, but we are also happy with the results and don’t want to lose everything in just a few weeks of inactivity — so we asked Sayonara for tips on outdoor exercise, something we can also use on holiday. Here is the program she suggested: 15 minutes of high intensity training, divided in 4 5-minute sequences that we should repeat at least 3 times. Every exercise should be performed as powerfully as you can, for 50 seconds, with 10-second breaks in between. Are you ready?
This is an exercise to get your upper body moving, and that will also give it stability. Lying belly down, fold your legs while moving your chest towards your thighs, and do a plank at the end of the movement.
2. Plank with upper body rotation
Lying belly down, move your body forward, and place your hands directly under your shoulders, with your legs stretched. Turn your upper body horizontally, keeping your shoulders nicely in line, and stretch your arm up.
3. Run in place
Run, baby, run!
Are you ready to sweat?!?
