3 Monster Monday
Hannah Eden, co-owner and founder of PumpFit Club in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, loves interval training so much that she offers her clients a different HIIT workout every single day of the week. “My go-to is called ‘Monster Monday,’ which is arguably the most challenging workout of my week,” she says.
Eden explains that while HIIT is largely known as for short bursts of cardio exercise with brief recovery periods, that’s far from the only way to use it. “My goal is to burn fat and calories while also building muscle mass, strength, and endurance,” she explains. “This is where resistance training comes in.”
Eden forms her workout by adding timed sessions of multijoint strength movements to her already grueling cardio component. “In my experience, high-intensity cardio plus short recovery times and heavy resistance training equals more effective and intense workouts,” she says. “Don’t count the reps; just set the timer and go to town!”
