There’s now a Shrek HIIT workout in existence and if anything going it make us exercise IT. IS. THIS.
PT and dance instructor Emily Thorne has choreographed a 22-minute high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout to a whole host of songs from the classic DreamWorks movie.
The exercise pro has created a burn session soundtracked to the likes of ‘I Need a Hero’ by Bonnie Tyler, ‘All Star’ by Smash House, ‘Funkytown’ by Lipps, ‘Like Wow!’ by Leslie Carter and ‘Best Years of Our Lives’ by Baha Men.
The part workout part karaoke extravaganza is sure to get your blood pumping, with Emily teaching a mixture of cardio, strength and core exercises while bopping around to the excellent soundtrack.
And it seems people are already loving what Emily – who has been posting a ton of fun workouts since the start of lockdown – is offering.
