Fitness: Heart-pumping HIIT Routine

If you read my last Treadmill HIIT workout, I explained what HIIT is. HIIT is high intensity interval training. HIIT workouts incorporate short bursts of energy with slower, to ensure maximum calorie burnage and, therefor, maximum results in little time. This routine can take you anywhere from 20-40 minutes. run

  • Warm up by stretching your arms, legs, and core
  • Get your heart rate up and sprint for two minutes at approximately speed 8
  • Cool down for three minutes walking at approximately speed 4 (or if you have more energy, slow jog this part)
  • Repeat this 4-8 times for a heart racing workout

NOTICE: Please adjust the speeds to suit your physical needs. The speeds provided are just recommendations. Also, if you run outdoors, just follow the bolded words and time, not the speeds.

Quinoa Cakes

After going to a local restaurant in my town, I had to make these Quinoa Cakes right as I got home.

  1. Cook one cup of quinoa with two cups of water for about 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. If the water is absorbed and the quinoa is still dry, add more water until light and fluffy
  2. Put the quinoa into a bowl with 1/4 cup olive oil and juice of 2 limes, mix, and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes
  3. While the quinoa is cooling, cut up olives, tomatoes, avocado, and red onion and put them in separate dishes. Also have micro greens
  4. Heavily pack quinoa into 1/3 cup measuring cup and turn upside down on a plate. Top quinoa cake with tomatoes, olives, avocado, micro-greens, and red onion
