Plyometric CARDIO + Functional STRENGTH HIIT Workout | 12 Days of HIITmas Day THREE

I could have alternatively titled this workout, “The One with All the Jumping.”  Lol!  This is a super sweaty (and very jumpy) workout, but so. much. fun!  I secretly really enjoy agility work.  I know it’s hard to tell with me looking all awkward and uncoordinated, but I’m actually having a blast when I make videos like this!

Agility and coordination go hand in hand with balance.  In fact, agility is basically just balance work at a very fast pace!  So it’s important to add some of these exercises to your repertoire in an effort to stay as nimble on your feet as possible for as many years as you can.  The more you practice now, the better your balance and coordination will be as you age.

Thankfully, underneath all the fancy footwork is a very simple and straightforward HIIT structure:  15 second intervals stacked into triplets, so we’re never doing anything too difficult for too long.  🙂  You can follow along in real time with the video below, or take this printable breakdown with you.  Leave a comment if you have any questions, and make sure you snap a pic to enter the Instagram contest, too!
