Equipment Required:

  • Chair or Bench
  • 2 Sets of Dumbbells ( I use a set of 10’s and a set of 30’s)
  • Shock-absorbing flooring, preferably.
  • I like to drink BCAAs to help protect muscle while doing a fasted workout.
  • I also like to wear a heart rate monitor to record the zone my heart rate is in and the calories I am burning.

Make sure to give each exercise all of your effort; otherwise, you are not going to benefit from metabolism-boosting effects of HIIT. For the best fat burning result do this workout prior to eating and wait at least 2 hours post workout before eating.  Don’t forget your heart rate monitor so you can see what you are burning!

This circuit consists of 6 exercises. Set your timers for 30 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. Repeat a second round on your own! If you are feeling fully of energy go for a third!

  1. Shoulder Press
  2. Split Squat
  3. Front Raises
  4. Pendulum Squat
  5. Lateral Raises
  6. Stiff Leg Dead lift

Alright, let gets started! Just click on the video below.
