5 Minute HIIT Pilates: November Arms for Autumn

November 1, 2018

HIIT Pilates combines all the principles from high-intensity interval training and Pilates to:

✔ burn fat

✔ boost metabolism

✔ sculpt/tone

✔ release stress

✔ increase flexibility

 

For November, we’re focusing on strong and sexy arms. Summer is over, but why not sculpt and tone your arms so they look fab in a tight fall long-sleeved shirt? Aside from vanity, having a strong upper body helps to improve posture and to efficiently transfer energy from your body to your legs.

 

As always, feel free to reverse the order of the workout if you want to tackle HIIT first.

 

Are you ready?
