Oh friends, I have a fun workout for you today! But first: our Thanksgiving workout challenge!

Here’s how you join in the fun:

-In the next two days, Instagram or tweet a picture of your best plank (get creative! Bonus points if you can get friends or family members to join in!). Be sure to add @fitnessista #HIITit #giveplanks so I can see it!

-Tag 3 friends to join in the challenge

I’ll be posting my faves in this week’s Friday Faves. I can’t wait to see them. :)

And now, for today’s workout. It’s only 10 minutes and all you need is your own body weight. 

Here’s how it goes:

Intervals of 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off

3 high intensity intervals

1 plank

3 high intensity intervals

1 plank

3 high intensity intervals

1 plank

Sounds fun, right? ;)

Here are some tips and form cues:

Tips: incorporate interval training into your routine when you have a solid cardio fitness base, meaning you can complete 30 minutes of moderate steady cardio most days of the week. As always, modify as needed and check with a doc before making any fitness changes. Just because we’re going for intensity, that doesn’t mean that it needs to be high impact. Feel free to use any of the low-impact modifications we provide, or substitute with your own favorite high-intensity moves.
