A New Workout Schedule for a New Year

Happy New Year!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year.  We just had a few friends over, had a yummy taco dinner, played some games and had fun ringing in 2015!  Yesterday I was tired from being up till 1:30 (yes I am old!), and I was really, really sore from my workouts so I took a rest day and we just vegged out for most of the day.  I have been taking detox baths with Epsom salts, baking soda and essential oils lately, and I know they are great for sore muscles so I took one last night and it was awesome, I also sleep really well after a hot bath.  It was a perfect day and I woke up refreshed today.

I started with a great workout with my friend Wendy.  We did arms and shoulders circuits followed by a tabata workout.  Since it is a new year I feel like it time for a new workout schedule too.  I really want to work on my arms and shoulder so by the time summer comes around I will be ready to show off some seriously muscular arms!  I also want to lean out my legs.  So I have written a new workout schedule that I will follow for January, then re-evaluate and change up in February, to keep my body from hitting a workout plateau and keep me from getting bored!  I can be a creature of habit and end up doing the same workouts over and over.  I am also trying to add in some new moves as well and making some new tabata workouts, so as I write new workouts I will be sure to share.  Here is the workout schedule I have some up with for January 2015.

Monday- Chest & Arms, HIIT cardio
Tuesday- Legs & abs
Wednesday- Back & Shoulders, HIIT cardio
Thursday- Rest
Friday- Arms & Shoulders, HIIT cardio
Saturday- Legs, HIIT cardio
 Sunday- Rest

My HIIT workouts will be either treadmill intervals, a tabata workout or a Jillian Michaels kickboxing workout.  I also got some battle ropes for Christmas from my awesome hubby and they should be there today, so I am looking forward to incorporating those into my HIIT sessions too.  Later this week I will post some of the HIIT workouts that I do.  Also, once I get all my new workouts written I will share too.
What are some of your favorite HIIT workouts?  Do you like steady state cardio or intervals?
