Ever since high school, hill repeats have been one of my favorite workouts because they are fast, killer, and tone the bootie! All you need for this workout is a hill. You could go to a park, run on the street, or go to a nearby hike you like. The longer the hill, the longer the burn, the steeper the hill, the harder the burn haha.
Workout: Warm - up with 5 minutes of cardio
Perform 5-10 hill repeats (shorter hill, higher number of repeats), with walk or jog back to start.
I sometimes make this workout a little more fun by adding length to the hill repeat. Essentially I will add 100 meters or 200 if I am feeling aggressive BEFORE you hit the hill. If you decided to do this, I would only perform 5-6 max of these.
Don't forget a cool down of light jogging and static stretching, then make sure to tag me in your workouts!

One of my favorite workouts to do is sprint intervals. For this workout all you need is yourself, about 200 meter stretch and some good jams!
Warm -up for 5 minutes with either a light jog, active plyos, or jump roping
Workout: 6-12 200s (depending on you activity level and how you are feeling) at 70- 80% (this is 70- 80% of your sprint level, so 100% would be your fastest all out sprint - yes you are going to be huffing and puffing haha). In between each one, your recovery will alternate between 25 squats, 30 Russian twists, 15 pushups, 15 tricep dips (think crab walk position, then dip at the elbow), 20 jump lunges, 20 straight leg sit-ups. Then repeat these exercises as you continue on.
This workout should take between 15-25 minutes depending on number of exercises...and your speed haha.
Recovery - 5 min light jog, stretch. Make sure to tag me if you try it out!
