Time for a quick workout review. I have been trying to fit in some workout videos from You Tube and have tried out a few new trainers. Millionaire Hoy is one of them that was recommended to me. If you are looking for a quick, solid and challenging workout Millionaire Hoy’s workouts may be for you.
The Day 2 Max Cardio HIIT click here is 35 minutes total, including a warm up and cool down. You move the entire time. It is hard, but after the 35 minutes you really feel worked.
It contains a lot of plyometrics (jumping) and high impact exercises, so it is a more advanced workout and not suitable for anyone with joint issues or injuries. Hoy does provide some low impact options and you could certainly come up with your own, however, essentially it is designed to be a high impact cardio workout.
The HIIT in the workout name is a little misleading to me, because it really is continuous aerobic activity, not really intervals where there is a clear rest break, or even lower energy activity break, between the action. He does do each exercise for a set time and then switch to the next one. So exercises are broken up, but you move from one to the other without rest. At the end of the round active water breaks are provided. I have seen other trainers and instructors use the term HIIT in the same way, however, so it could be me who is incorrectly using the term.
The warm up, cool down and stretching are nice and fairly thorough for such a short workout.
I really enjoyed it and will certainly try more of his workouts. They are definitely great for me when I am very very short on time but really want to get it done.
Have you tried any new workouts lately? Do you enjoy HIIT?
