No Repeats /No Equipment HIIT Workout

No Repeat /No Equipment HIIT Workout is another excellent body weight strength workout from Heather Robertson. This felt like a shorter version of her Day 6 Home Workout Challenge // Killer No Repeat HIIT Workout (No Equipment), which I just did a few days ago. However, that workout is a bit more intense than this workout. Heather puts “HIIT” in the title (High Intensity Interval Training) of both workouts but I didn’t find either workout to be HIIT level. Some of the exercises were intense but none of them spiked my heart rate into my peak heart rate zone. This workout kept me in my fat burn and cardio heart rate zones. Nevertheless, it was a great workout. It worked me nicely and gave me some decent cardio. I burned 237 calories plus it was very enjoyable. This is another one of Heather’s feel good workouts. I got a great workout and felt great afterward–not wasted or wrung out. As the title indicates no equipment is needed and no exercise is repeated. The workout consists of both body weight strength exercises and cardio exercises. This is not a low impact workout. Lots of jumping.

No Repeat /No Equipment HIIT Workout is 38:34 minutes; 3:15 minute warm up and 4 minute stretch. Equipment: fitness mat. The exercises are all done interval style: 40 seconds of work followed by 20 seconds of rest. There is a timer in the lower left hand side of the screen counting down your intervals and recoveries. During the recovery Heather previews the next exercise.
