Fierce 14 Day 14: Total Body Strength & Cardio Workout!

Total Body Strength & Cardio Workout is Day 14 in Heather Robertson‘s Fierce 14 program. This is the final workout in the program and it is an excellent one. This is an intense cardio + strength workout that hits every muscle in the body through compound exercises. This workout is made up of 6 circuits. Each circuit has 3 exercise: 2 compound strength moves and one cardio move. Each circuit is done two times before moving on to the next circuit. The exercises are all done interval style: 40 seconds of work followed by 20 seconds of recovery. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen counting down your intervals and recoveries. During the recoveries Heather previews your next exercise.

Because this workout is only 43 minutes, I used one of Heather’s Daily 10 workouts as a finisher: Day 15 Total Body No Repeats. Between the two workouts I got an excellent and intense total body metabolic strength workout.

Total Body Strength & Cardio Workout is 43:08 minutes; 2:10 minute warm up and 3:10 minute stretch. Equipment: dumbbells and fitness mat. Heather is using 5, 10 and 15 pound dumbbells. The weights listed below are what I used.

  1. Push press (with DBs at shoulders, do a squat and when you stand, do an overhead press) (16.5# DBs)
  2. Deadlift & row (deadrows) (30# DBs)
  3. Jump squat
  4. Repeat #1-3

  1. T-push ups (with a DB in each hand, do one push up then rotate into side plank, reaching top arm/DB to ceiling, alternate sides with one push up between each side plank) (10# DBs)
  2. Bridge crusher (lay on back on mat with knees bent and feet close to glutes, you are holding a DB in each hand, the end of the DBs are on the floor on either side of head/by ears, raise hips into bridge and hold, extend DBs to ceiling straightening arms, bend elbows lowering DBs and hips back to start) (11# DBs)
  3. Mountain climbers
  4. Repeat #1-3

  1. It looks like you had a good workout today!

    It was an all-Heather day for me as well. I did Day 11 of her H2.0 (back and bis) and finished with her standing abs. Her H2.0 workouts are wonderful. She does them at a pace where you can lift heavy and pretty much keep time with her. But the best part are the cooldowns. She really focuses on having a thorough one each time and includes some feel-good moves too. Like today she included side neck stretches where she actually holds them for a good 15s each side. Really, really enjoying that aspect of the series!

    Hubs and I took Ajax for a walk afterwards. It’s going to turn really cold here again starting this evening (low 20s for highs and near 0 for lows) for the next week. 🥶

      1. Much better. I jumped this morning during Heather’s workout and a gentle rebounder workout this afternoon. Tomorrow morning I plan to do much more intense rebounding.
