Naomi Joy Fitness: Rebounder HIIT Cardio Workout / Plus Strength

Rebounder HIIT Cardio Workout / Plus Strength is another excellent and inventive rebounder workout from Naomi Joy. I really enjoyed this workout. It is set outdoors in front of a beautiful and colorful mural. This is a cardio + strength circuit workout. There are 5 cardio circuits and 5 strength circuits. You do not need any equipment except your rebounder unless you need to modify. Naomi’s friend Amber is working out with her. Amber shows easier modifications for many of the moves and also uses dumbbells to modify one of the body weight exercises. The exercises are done interval style: each exercise is done for 45 seconds followed by 15 seconds of recovery. The way this workout is structured, with relatively short circuits, seemed to make the time fly by. I was working hard but at the same time, the workout was over before I knew it! I wanted more! Then Naomi gives you a relaxing stretch. Only a few exercises are repeated, too. Two, I think. Squat jumps is one of them, of course! The only other time an exercise is repeated is if it is done on one side of the body, then you repeat it on the other side of the body. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen, counting down the workout time. There is another timer in the lower left-hand side of the screen, counting down your intervals and recoveries. Naomi and Amber preview the next exercise during the recoveries. This workout is done voice over with great, motivating music.

Rebounder HIIT Cardio Workout / Plus Strength is 47:44 minutes; 40 second intro, 3 minute warm up and 5 minute stretch. Equipment: rebounder. Optional dumbbells if you need an easier version of a tricep exercise (see strength circuit 2). As mentioned above, Amber shows easier modifications for a lot of the exercises–both cardio and strength exercises. This is a workout where some of the moves are done on the floor, so I had to wear shoes.
