If you follow along on snapchat (@yogaby_candace), you know that this workout was a killer for me because I messed up the counting on the last round of the hiit workout and had to reshoot the whole thing! My shoulders were on fire!
This is a very quick hiit workout, but I promise you, your upper body will be screaming (in the best possible way). I partnered up with Mother Dirt for this because they created the first and only live probiotic for the skin. This stuff is so fascinating to me! It's a real breakthrough for people who sweat a lot because it contains a healthy bacteria that literally consumes the ammonia in your sweat, which is the stinky and irritating component of sweat. Using their AO+ Mist before or after you workout helps reduce body odor and makes your skin feel smooth and refreshed. I've been using it for about four weeks on my face and love it. They also have two other supporting products - a shampoo and cleanser. All Mother Dirt products have 10 ingredients or less, are plant-based, sulfate-free, preservative free, fragrance free, eco-friendly, and biome-friendly!

Today's hiit workout is three rounds of three different movements. The first movement is shoulder taps from a plank position. You'll essentially just shift your weight side to side, tapping your opposite shoulder with your opposite hand as you shift weight. We'll do that ten times. The next movement is mountain climbers. You'll come into the mountain climber lunging position and then quickly switch feet. We'll do that ten times. The last movement is push ups. I am doing them chaturanga style with the elbows back behind me. You can modify by coming down onto your knees if you need to. We'll do five push ups, and then start the second round, go all the way through all three movements, and start the final round of all three movements.
Give it a try down below and let me know how it goes for you in the comment section below. Are you into these hiit workout videos? I kind of love them because they're quick but really do make you feel like you put in some WERK.
