    Try This Routine: Go For A 20-Minute Run Followed By This HIIT At Home

    You don’t need to spend an hour in a studio to get the perfect full-body burn. This at-home HIIT workout will tighten and tone all your areas in less than the time it would’ve taken to find parking for your class.

    We recently picked up the perfect routine from Liz Smithers, the Kauai-based yogi behind Laka Living, incredible high-vibe foods that are hard to describe until you try them — explore our obsession here. As a business owner and mama-to-be, Liz’s schedule is a busy one, and sometimes getting to a class is just not in the cards. Instead of putting exercise to the wayside, she merely shifted her approach and created this incredibly dynamic full-body workout to do at home.

    Next time you need a great sweat in as little time as possible, try this routine on for size: go for a 20 to 30-minute walk or jog (depending on what your body needs) and then do this HIIT workout at home
