Workout Wednesday: Lower Body HIIT

I tried this HIIT workout for the first time on Monday and I'm still a little sore today (in my book that means it's a good workout)!  No matter how much I workout, ladders are always a challenging rep scheme and really amp up the cardio aspect of your workout as you are constantly moving the entire time.  I tried to complete the entire ladder without stopping, keeping moving the entire time (I stopped for a quick drink of water about halfway through).  Most of the moves are focused on your lower body (legs, thighs, and butt), but I also had to sneak some abs in there to break it up a bit!  If you don't have a kettlebell, check out this site for some other substitutions! Let's go!
