Full Body HIIT Workout // Burn Fat Fast is another effective strength workout from Heather Robertson. During her intro, when I heard you repeat a circuit of 5 exercises 4 times, I got a little nervous, remembering her 20 Minute Full Body HIIT Workout with Weights. I did that workout on Monday and it was intense. I got even more nervous when I saw the first exercise–which is also the first exercise in 20 Minute Full Body HIIT Workout with Weights. The titles of her workouts are all so similar! Was I doing the same workout? But then you get a 20 second recovery plus the second exercise is completely different. All that to say that this definitely a less intense workout than 20 Minute Full Body HIIT Workout with Weights. Plus, this isn’t a true full body workout like 20 Minute Full Body HIIT Workout with Weights is. It’s still a good workout but your chest, back and core don’t get any work. This workout hits your lower body, biceps, triceps and shoulders. Plus some cardio bursts. I did get a good workout but I wasn’t working nearly as hard as I was in 20 Minute Full Body HIIT Workout with Weights. BTW–Heather’s workout titles are crazy! I am using the paste function instead of typing that long a$$ title out over and over again.
This is a circuit workout. It contains one circuit of 5 exercises that is repeated 4 times. It is done interval style: 40 seconds of work followed by 20 seconds of rest. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen, counting down your intervals. During the recovery a small rectangle appears in the center of the screen, previewing the next exercise. Beside it is a huge counter, counting down the rest time.
Full Body HIIT Workout // Burn Fat Fast is 21 minutes; 1 minute intro, no warm up and no stretch. I used Heather’s 5 Minute Warm Up and ended with her Stretch + Relaxation Routine. Equipment: dumbbells. Heather used one set of dumbbells, probably her 10 pound dumbbells she uses in most of her workouts. The dumbbells listed below are what I used for each exercise. I used one 25 pound dumbbell plus a set of 15 and a set of 12 pound dumbbells.
- Deadlift + Upright Row (15# DBs)
- Overhead Tricep Extensions (French Press) (one 25# DB)
- Sumo Squats (15# DBs)
- Alternating Hammer Curls (12# DBs)
- 180 Jump Squats
- Repeat #1-5 three more times
