A motivational note from Octane Fitness team member and certified group fitness leader:
As December comes to a close, people all over the world are preparing for New Year’s festivities and coming up with their new goals and dreams for the New Year. I have to admit that I have a love-hate relationship with New Year’s resolutions. While a commitment to a change can be a great way to jump-start your healthy lifestyle, sometimes people make goals that are either too vague and ineffective or just flat out unrealistic. Soon people lose the motivation to continue or they just get bored. If you feel like you need to make a New Year’s resolution, just keep it simple, and easy. Come up with a specific goal that is easy to meet and easily rewarded. Set your specific goal with a reward in mind and revisit your goal at the end of each week to see how well it is working for you. Don’t wait for the entire year to pass before you evaluate your progress or even add in a new challenge. All you need is that feeling of success to help motivate you and before you know it the change you were hoping to see will become the reality.

Helpful descriptions of some of the more difficult or lesser-known exercises listed above.
- Plank with Reverse Row and Tricep Kickback – Start in plank position with your feet out wider than hips to help with stability. Transfer your weight to one side, and work to keep your hips facing the floor, as you row one dumbbell up, lifting your elbow just a little past your back. Without swinging (use your tricep), straighten your arm, bringing it parallel to the floor. Reverse the motion repeat for duration of interval.
- Side Plank with Twist – Lie down on your right side with you elbow under your shoulder and lift hips into plank position. Stretch you left arm up above your shoulder reaching your fingers towards the ceiling. Bring your left arm down under you body twisting your upper body as you reach behind you and then extend arm back into air. Repeat for duration of the interval. Switch sides for next set.
- Reverse Plank with Leg Lift – Sit with legs outstretched, hands behind your butt, fingers forward, and raise into reverse plank position. Press onto your hands and alternate lift legs, keeping hips raised at all times.
Stay Fueled and enjoy your interval training workout!
