So now the final remnants of the Christmas overload of mince pies, boozin', lashings of turkey and enough choccy to sink a ship should have petered out, it's pretty normal to feel like you've over indulged and your jeans are a tad (ahem) bit toit! Dudes, no worries, over the next few months I'll be bringing you a full series of video workouts from a remote and wild locations that you can follow wherever you're at in the world. Focussing on boosting strength, stripping fat and getting your energy and stoke levels high, I'll be releasing them on Mad To Live regularly, so stay tuned!
MAD TO LIVE FIT VID WORKOUT 1 FROM THE COSTA RICAN JUNGLE
Follow the outlined circuit below and use the video. This is an awesome HIIT circuit for building strength and melting some fat, a lot of the moves are some of my favorites I do for staying fit for surfing but they are suitable for overall fitness. Do each exercise for 1 minute before immediately going onto the next. Once you finish all 9 take a 30 second or 1 minute rest (depending on fitness level), before repeating twice.
DYNAMIC WARM: 5 MINUTES of a mixture of squats, lunges, jacks, mountain climbers, inch worms and toe taps.
