Les Mills Grit StrengthWe couldn’t have a Les Mills themed issue without some form of Les Mills workout, right? Here’s a taster of the Grit Strength workouts

LES MILLS GRIT STRENGTH is a 30-minute high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, designed to improve strength and build lean muscle. This workout uses barbell, weight plate and body weight exercises to blast all major muscle groups. Designed to take cutting edge HIIT and combine it with powerful music and inspirational coaches to help you go harder to get fit, fast, we’ve taken the Tabata sequence, one of six parts of the workout, to show you what’s involved. Be prepared to sweat!

THE SCIENCE
