In case you haven't been in a single store recently, Valentine's Day is nearly upon us. I'm kind of a Grinch about Valentine's Day. I've never liked the holiday -- it just seems like it puts pressure on everyone.
If you're in a relationship, it puts pressure on both people to come up with something romantic and sweet and loving on a random day in February. And if you're single it puts pressure on you to find romance and basically just makes you feel like you're the loneliest person in the world who will definitely die alone as you see your paired-up friends get chocolate or flowers (that are monstrously overpriced, by the way, because of this ridiculous holiday).
I'm all in favor of a holiday dedicated to love, but let's be honest, that's what the December holidays have become -- a time to cherish your family and friends. So that just leaves Valentine's Day to make everyone feel bad about themselves.
Thankfully, I have a solution. I decided to create this Heartbreaker High Intensity Interval Training Workout because there's no better way to feel awesome than to work your ass off and rain sweat on this silly holiday.
Let's make the hearts that are tacked up everywhere stand for heart-healthy as we mix some tough strength exercises with killer cardio intervals.
(Oh, and if you don't agree with my feelings on Valentine's Day, you can still do this workout. I promise it won't turn you into a V-Day Grinch like me.)
Complete as many repetitions of each exercise as possible in 1 minute, resting only between sets. Repeat circuit for a 30 minute full-body workout.
I've included videos below for each exercise in case you aren't sure how to do it!
