Full Body Sculpting: 20 Minute Fat Burn HIIT

Hi Everyone!

Tonight we had a family dinner (I can't turn down my mom's home cooking!) and Jesse had some stuff to take care of for work when we got home so I didn't get to film a new workout. 

While he was working I got in a great 3.1 mile run, and a 2 mile walking cool down. 

I shared a link on Facebook to this 20 minute HIIT workout for those of you looking for a challenging workout tonight. 

This workout is an intense 20 minute interval workout. I broke the workout up into four 5-minute rounds. Keep rest minimal between rounds, but be sure to listen to you body. It helps to have some water handy. I was dripping sweat like crazy during this workout!

This is a really great full body routine, with lots of compound movements to maximize fat burning and body sculpting all at one time.  

I will definitely see you tomorrow with a new workout!

  1. Thanks so much for another great workout. Even when it is an "old" workout, it is nice to have someone telling me what to do!

  2. Is there an alternate to the box jump?

  3. I'm not crazy about the box jump either but found a soft ottoman to land on..better.
