LES MILLS GRIT 4‑week training program


WEEK 1 WORKOUT MOVE: LES MILLS GRIT BURPEE

Move breakdown:

  • Feet start wide
  • Squat down and keep your chest elevated
  • Place your hands flat on the floor
  • Brace your core and jump your feet back to a plank
  • Jump your feet back in wide and stand tall

YOUR CHALLENGE

Show me how many LES MILLS burpees you can do in 1 minute.

  1. Take a video of yourself doing the burpees
  2. Post it to Instagram
  3. Tag: @nina, @lesmillstribe @reebokwomen and #LIKENINA

Mastering this move will shift your fitness to the next level and I want to see how you are getting on.

MY TOP TIP: TAKE AN OPTION

An alternative to doing the burpee is to try a few by just walking your legs back instead of jumping into plank. This will help you get your technique right before you add speed.


WEEK 1 QUICK HIIT WORKOUT: TABATA WITH HIGH KNEES AND BURPEES

Workout breakdown:

  • 20 secs of high knees
  • 10 secs rest
  • 20 secs of burpees with jump
  • 10 sec rest

Repeat 3 times

To help you get prepared for my workout, the LES MILLS team have put together some quick high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts.


WHAT IS TABATA?

Tabata is short blocks of work that challenge your body to its highest level followed by short recovery periods.
