HIIT WORKOUTS - 3 sessions that made me want to throw up

If 10 weeks ago you told me that my next cycle of training was to be done at home I would have thought you were mad - but here we are heading into week 10!


HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) sessions have become a key part of my training plan in order to maintain fitness. During some sessions my HR has spiked as high at 171bpm. This is 91% of my HR max, so as you can imagine they have been pretty tough!

With that said, here we have it… the 3 toughest HIIT sessions i’ve done during lockdown.
