NO REPEATS Full Body HIIT Workout // Day 45 HR12WEEK 2.0

No Repeats Full Body HIIT Workout is Day 45 in Heather Robertson‘s 12 Week Program. This is another intense metabolic strength workout. This one is cardio + strength but there is no set pattern to how the cardio and the strength exercises are alternated. The strength exercises are primarily metabolic exercises that work multiple muscle groups in a single exercise. This will really elevate your heart rate. Finally, the interval lengths (45/15) also increase the intensity. I was working hard! Like many of Heather’s “full body” workouts, I did not feel this was full body, so I used her short The Best Exercises to Target Back Fat as a finisher. Between the two workouts I burned 465 calories!

The exercises are all done interval style: 45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of recovery. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen counting down the intervals and recoveries. During the recovery Heather previews the next exercise. Heather shows a low impact variation for some of the exercises that have impact.

  1. Happy Wednesday!

    I did H2.0 Day 24 HiiT cardio and AB’s. Heather does such a great job combining these two types of exercise because it’s never boring. Some are cardio based abs, some are standing and some are on the mat. I finished it with one of her 10 min glute band routines.

    I called my specialist about my elbow and made another appt. He had brought up the “s” word last December but as a last-ditch he gave me a cortisone shot which worked great … until the end of April. *sigh* So I’m expecting surgery to be brought up again. We shall see.
