No Repeat Full Body Workout

What a fun workout! No Repeat Full Body Workout is a compilation of 3 of Heather Robertson‘s workouts edited together to make one short but thorough total body metabolic strength workout. It is made up of 3 circuits and each circuit contains 7 exercises; 6 strength exercise and one cardio exercise. Each circuit is made up of exercises pulled from a separate workout. Circuit 1 is from Leg Day Strength Workout for Lean Legs, Circuit 2 is from Back Toning + Sculpting Workout, and Circuit 3 is from Full Body Kettlebell Workout // At Home HIIT. I loved all 3 of those workouts when I did them on their own–combined together they create a fun and intense workout. I loved it!

This workout is done interval style: each exercise is done for 40 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of recovery. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen counting down intervals and recoveries. During the recovery Heather previews the next exercise.

No Repeat Full Body Workout is 25:35 minutes; 4 minute warm up and 3 minute stretch. Equipment: dumbbells, a kettlebell and a fitness mat. the weights listed below are what I used.

  1. I found HR because of you and love her workouts! For a while I’ve thought that I had to do the same exercise 3 sets to get results or feel the burn. I’m finding that these no repeats are still working the same area…just a different exercise. Much needed as my workouts are changing the older I get.

    1. Hi Maria! My workouts are changing a lot, too, and in ways I never imagined. I never thought my go to for cardio would be a rebounder but now it is my primary means of cardio. I rarely use DVDs anymore. In fact, I now pay for YouTube premium because 95% of my workouts are on YouTube now. Although I do still try workouts/trainers that I do not enjoy (but still give me an excellent workout), I always return to Heather’s workouts for my strength. She takes care of business and makes it challenging but enjoyable. I turned 50 in January and I really don’t have any fitness goals anymore except to just stay healthy, in shape and remain functional into old age.
