Burn Fat Fast // Low Impact Fat Burning HIIT Workout

Burn Fat Fast // Low Impact Fat Burning HIIT Workout is yet another excellent workout from Heather Robertson. Today I was looking for more metabolic cardio. She has quite a few I wanted to try and, since it’s Saturday and I can do a longer workout, I stacked several of her workouts again. I created a folder/playlist specifically for this morning’s workouts and stacked the workouts I planned to do in the order I planned to do them so they played straight through from beginning to end. I started with this workout since it has it’s own warm up. After this workout I went straight into her Low Impact Cardio Workout for Beginners followed by her 12 Minute Kettlebell Tabata then I ended it all with her Recovery Workout // Strength + Relaxation Routine. And all together, I got a killer workout. The metabolic cardio portion was 66 minutes and in that time I burned 500 calories. Not bad for a little over an hour of hard work. And I was working hard. (With the Recovery workout my total workout time was 79 minutes)

This workout is made up of 12 exercises that are repeated. Each exercise is done for 45 seconds with 15 second recovery. There is a counter in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, counting down your interval. During the 15 second recovery between exercises, the next exercise is featured in the center of the screen with a clock, counting down the 15 seconds.

Burn Fat Fat // Low Impact Fat Burning HIIT Workout is 33 minutes; 30 second intro, 4:30 minute warm up and 3:30 minute stretch. Equipment: dumbbells. Heather is using a set of 10 pound dumbbells for everything. I used 10 pounds, too, and found that weight perfect fir this entire workout.

  1. Side Lunge + Curl (alternating side lunges, reaching DBs down toward foot when lunging then curl DBs between lunges)
  2. Deadlift into Front Raise
  3. Inchworm Push Up (start standing, forward fold and walk hands out to plank, do one push up then walk hands back to feet, stand and raise arms overhead)
