40 Minute HIIT Playlist/Workout

Happy Wednesday guys!

I wanted to give you a detailed recap of yoga from Monday night, but life has gotten a little hectic, so it’s not happening today. 🙂 Long story short – I really liked it! I promise more details later.

This week, I’m once again participating in the Wild Workout Wednesday Link-up, hosted by AnnMarie of The Fit Foodie Mama, Angelena Marie of Happy, Healthy, and Balanced, Upala of Pretty in Pink Fitness, and Amber of Bold Fit Mom.

Wild Workout Wednesday.For this workout, I put together a playlist of songs that get me all pumped up and ready to go. I titled it HIIT Playlist (High Intensity Interval Training), but another appropriate name would have been the ‘Get Psyched Playlist’.

Get Psyched Playlist | 2 Generations Running

The playlist is exactly 40 minutes – just long enough to work up a good sweat. 🙂

HIIT Playlist | 2 Generations Running

Alternate cardio intervals with lower body, core, or arm exercises every time the song changes. (I’m not a personal trainer, and you should always listen to your body – rest as needed!)

Ideas for the cardio intervals:

  • Jumping jacks
  • Mountain climbers
  • Burpees
  • Butt kicks
  • Squat jumps

Ideas for lower body, core, or arm intervals:

  • Push-ups [arms]
  • Bicep curls [arms]
  • Tricep extensions [arms]
  • Side hip raises [core]
  • Plank [core]
  • Toe touch crunches [core]
  • Squats [lower body]
  • Heel raises [lower body]
  • Lunges [lower body]

When the playlist ends, you’re all done! And probably extremely sweaty 🙂

  1. What a fun idea! I love all the songs you picked. It definitely makes a huge different what music you listen to when you are working out! I am going to have to try this on my next cardio day! Thanks so much for linking up!
