Here’s a teaser of how much you have to sweat for your nuggets.
As if six pieces of nuggets are not enough, it is rumoured that McDonalds is launching a 48-piece nugget bucket. This bucket contains over 2000 calories, which may be even more than the daily amount of calories we should be consuming in a day. We did a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout to see how much we have to work to burn off those nuggets. Our workout was designed by TripleFit trainers Sara May and Firdaus Fidrishah and inspired by the EnduroFit Class.
The 45 min workout included three sets of:
- 2 min Rower
- 1 min Plank
- 2 min Ski-Erg
- 1 min Plank Squat
- 2 min Assault Bike
- 1 min Burpees
- 2 min Sled
During the workout, we used trackers to monitor our heart rates. The aim was to get to 70 to 80 per cent of our maximum heart rate, which is the ideal fat-burning zone. On average, the Shape team burnt about 600 to 800 calories per person during the session. And let’s just say we’d rather stick to our six-piece nuggets.
