NO REPEATS Workout: Full Body Strength & Cardio // Day 40 HR12WEEK 2.0

No Repeats Workout: Full Body Strength & Cardio is Day 40 in Heather Robertson‘s 12 Week Program. This is another intense metabolic total body strength workout. As the title indicates, no exercise is repeated, which helps keep this workout interesting. If you have made it to day 40 of this program, you will recognize every single exercise performed, so not having to do them multiple times in the same workout is a blessing. Especially Carry Lunges! This is also a cardio + strength workout; cardio exercises are alternated with strength exercises throughout, though not in any set pattern. Since this workout is just under 44 minutes, I used Heather’s Standing Abs Workout // With Weights as a finisher. Between the two workouts I burned 450 calories! So lots of cardio with my strength work.

No Repeats Workout: Full Body Strength & Cardio is 43:47 minutes; 4 minute warm up and 5:30 minute stretch. Equipment: dumbbells and fitness mat. Heather is using 5, 10, 15 and 25 pound dumbbells. The weights listed below are what I used. 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 the next exercise.

  1. Happy Memorial Day to you!

    Today I did a H2.0 workout as well! I did Day 33 back and arms. Because I’m still nursing a sore right lat (🤨🤬) and my right elbow is stubbornly cranky, I lifted lighter than I normally would have. I still got a really good workout, though, which makes me happy! I finished with one of sarabeth’s full body flexibility routines ( The stretch shown in the thumbnail felt sooooo good through the whole side of my body!

    My PLAN this week is to continue working back through Heather’s H2.0 workouts but then I saw that Caroline has started posting her new Fuel workouts … I’m going to try to resist diving into those to give my back/elbow more time to heal.

    Have a great day!


    1. That is my plan as well. I have 8 more of Heather’s workouts scheduled. I also have all of Caroline’s Iron series scheduled, so it will be a while before I get to her fuel series.

      It’s probably a good idea to modify things so your elbow can heal before you start more of Caroline’s workouts.
