Start by asking yourself one question:

How bad do you want it? This one question will determine whether you are driven enough to keep on going.

Summer Ready Body Blast Workout with No Tummy Mommy Trisha Enrique

A typical HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout usually involves a 2:1 ratio, where your recovery intervals are twice as long as the work intervals. In your case, alternate skipping at a high intensity for 30 seconds followed by skipping at a low-moderate pace for 1 minute for a total of 15 minutes. Use a stopwatch or timer to help you track your intervals. KILL THOSE 30 seconds!

Be consistent and remember, if you want it bad enough you will get there. Do. Not. Give. Up! You got this … now go get your body blast on, and you’ll be ready for summer!
