Workout: HIIT the Slopes II

Winter is coming! And whether you are an avid skiier or snowboarder, this routine is sure to work up a sweat. It’s time to HIIT the slopes! For this workout, all you will need is a mat and a set of dumbbells! These moves are perfect to help build lower body and core strength while improving balance. For the novice winter warriors, we threw in some upper body exercises to help you get back up if you fall down πŸ˜‰

There are two exercises in every round followed by 30 seconds of rest. Perform both exercises for 30 seconds each then rest for 30 seconds. Repeat each round 3 times before moving on to the next round. Get your timers ready…
