Yvette is offering two clinics in May that you won’t want to miss and she’s ready to take on personal training clients. 

To get you pumped, we’re sharing one of her high-intensity interval training (HIIT) routines designed to zap calories fast.

Yvette’s 4-Minute Summer Shape-Up  

Do each of the following moves for 1 minute each for a quick calorie blast. Repeat 3-5 times, taking a 1-2 minute break between circuits, for a longer workout.

Begin in a standing position. Bend your knees into a squat position with your hands on the ground. Kick your feet back, while keeping your arms straight, hands flat on the floow. Immediately return your feet to the squat position. Jump up from the squat position. Repeat for 1 minute. 

Mountain Climber
Start in a push-up position with hands slightly wider than shoulder width, arms straight and body in a straight line from head to ankles. Keeping low back slightly arched, bring right knee toward your chest. Pause, return to starting position and repeat with left leg. Continue alternating sides for 1 minute. 

Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides. Hop to right, landing on right foot while sweeping left foot diagonally behind right leg and swinging left arm across body and right arm behind back. Jump to left, switching legs and arms to complete 1 rep. Repeat for 1 minute. 

Plank with Side Steps
Start in a push-up position. Bend elbows and rest weight on forearms, not hands, with elbows directly under shoulders. Your body should form a straight line from shoulders to ankles. Engage your core by pulling your belly button into your spine. Walk right foot out wide without moving hips and follow by moving left foot out wide. Bring right foot back in followed by the left. Repeat for 1 minute.
