Hey Guys! Today I wanted to share with you a workout that I’ve been loving. I keep talking about how high intensity interval training has given me body confidence and you all want to know what exactly I’m doing. I really never knew I could see results in such little time in the gym until I only had little time to spare.
High intensity interval training as you know is also known as HIIT. It combines plyometric movement with strength training exercises that challenge your body to the limit in a short amount of time with little rest in between exercises and sets. You’re basically going all out the entire time and if you don’t, the results I promised above won’t be there.
I began doing these exercises as a new mom and quickly realized that having the right bra would change what I was able to do. I needed support and lots of it if I wanted to crush it at the gym. I literally held my chest the first time I ran on the treadmill postpartum.
Unfortunately, bras for big chests are hard to come by and cute ones are like unicorns, existence debatable. In the photos for the workout, I’m rocking the new Natori Yogi wireless racerback bra, a high impact bra designed for larger cup sizes with an easy on and off zip-front. The zip is also handy for nursing.
Designed for high intensity workout with maximum support, it has easily adjustable straps, and shape without the need for a wire. It comes in sizes 30-40 C-DDD and 32-38 G.
If you’re wondering if the zipper falls down, it does not on me. I got a 34 D. I un-zipped it a bit because I thought it looked a little sexy. Since when are sports bras made for bigger chests cute enough to wear on their own let alone feel sexy, right?
I tested it out for this workout at well as on a treadmill for 1.5 miles at an 8:30 minute mile pace. I had no complaints! In fact, I loved it. I felt fully supported, comfortable and love the look. If you are looking for a new sports bra designed for larger cup sizes, I highly recommend checking out the new Natori Yogi Wireless racerback bra. The name is a little misleading as it’s great for bootcamps and not just yogis.

Thank you to Natori for partnering with me on this post.
Any tips for making the jump squats/burpees low impact? I don’t have a gym membership and live in an apartment and my downstairs neighbors would most definitely not appreciate this workout.
Yes -- try stepping side to side instead quickly. So instead of jumping up, step to the right and then step to the left. One foot is always in the middle. Step out to right, squat. Bring right foot into middle, step left foot out and squat. Bring left foot back to start, step out to right, squat, repeat.
I love HIIT workouts but need to incorporate them more. I’m not getting the results I want from my daily workouts so I’ll give this a try!
I guess this is a big problem , dealing with big boobs while working out, First thing they need immense support, I use high impact bras for support and they are really great, They are a bit tough to get used to.
