    Mondays go one of two ways: either you dread them, or you dominate them. Intense, we know, but it’s all in the attitude, baby. Say hello to a HIIT workout at home. High intensity interval training is the perfect Monday motivation. A small space indoors, a timer and a few minutes to spare is all you need to crush a bit of cardio. Try our 10-minute HIIT workout at home.

    Tuesday – leg exercises at home

    Find a space do your leg exercises at home, put on a tune and let’s get to it. First, low lunges. Start with your feet together and take one big step forward, lowering yourself and then return to standing position. Alternate each leg. Now, jump squats. Lower your body down into a squat and as you come up jump into the air. Repeat 15 times. Repeat these two sets twice more each and hello burn (the good kind).
