Total Body Strength & Cardio HIIT Workout

Total Body Strength & Cardio HIIT Workout

Total Body Strength and Cardio HIIT Workout

Strength Workout for Women

This workout you can choose. You can choose to perform just the strength portion (takes about 35-minutes), or you can stay till the end for my fantastic finisher. A 12-minute cardio HIIT focussing on the legs and abs.

Everyone wants a quick workout. I hear it all the time from people, and it even shows up in my YouTube analytics.

The shorter workouts that I record and release have more views than the workouts that take 45+ minutes to do.

However, longer workouts do:

Burn more calories.

Work more muscles, because you are at it for a longer period of time.

Train you harder – if the intensity is there.

This workout is long, and if you can do it in it’s entirety (with my cardio HIIT finisher at the end) you will be SO happy you did.

However, if you only have time for 35-minutes, then I have segmented it so you can get in an awesome strength workout. I got ya covered. Long or short workout. 

This is a fantastic strength workout for women too.

Since we start to lose lean muscle mass after the age 30, and then the years right after menopause we can lose up to 20% of our bone density it’s crucial that every woman between the ages of 30 to 65 strength train.

35-Minute Total Body Dumbbell Tabata

35-Minute Total Body Dumbbell Tabata

A total body Tabata workout that uses dumbbells to increase muscle tone, as well as improve your cardio.

This workout, I am sad to report, I am solo. No loving husband.

I know! It’s just not the same without him. However, I gave him a really bad cold and the day I had to film (cause I missed last week from filming from being sick myself) he was coughing, sniffling and feeling pretty crappy.

So… since I was the a-hole who got him sick, the only conceivable thing to do was to leave him at home with Netflix, a bag of chips and a Big Gulp.

35-Minute Total Body Dumbbell Tabata

 

  • A Tabata workout is a series of sets (8 in total) of one exercise, with a work time of 20-seconds a set. While the work time is short, it makes up in intensity though.
  • For a true Tabata workout the exercises must be intense (a 9 and 10 out of 10 in the RPE scale).

The science of Tabata.

Research has shown that a Tabata workout can produce the same, and if not better, results for increased fitness, improved heart function and weight loss just the same as longer, less-intense workouts.

This is great news since the number one cited reason for not working out is lack of time.

40-Min Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

40-Min Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

40-Minute Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

Non-stop cardio that you can do at home. A great weight loss workout.

Cardio is always something I have hated to do.

This hasn’t been from lack of trying to love it, though.

Through the years I have competed in 10km runs, half marathons, triathlons and bike races, yet 22 years later I’m still not a fan.

There’s a couple of reasons cardio doesn’t have my heart.

First, I don’t like spending a long time on any one thing. It bores the hell out of me! (With the exception of hiking. I can hike for hours, and maybe that’s because it’s so much fun dragging loving husband up and down mountains.)

I am also adverse to being in large groups of people. I love exercise for it’s solo-ness (Don’t get me going about having participated in the Vancouver Sun Run. The most crowded run on the planet, if not the galaxy, and where you need to train in the art of defense first, then running.).

However,  I do love getting my heart rate up and I love to sweat.

So… through the years I perfected a variety of home cardio workouts that keep my attention, while also improving my fitness – and workouts that don’t leave me with any damn saddle sores (damn you bike seat!).

25-Minute Total Body Pump

A total body workout – shaken not stirred. 

Wow, it’s been a ling time since I blogged. How long you wonder? Well, the last blog I dropped was back in May.

That’s a 3-month break in real time and like a 2-year break in terms of the internet.

My break was much needed, though. While I love what I do I hit a wall and needed some time to recoup, regroup and rejuvenate (sh!t, I should write copy for spas).

It’s good to be back though.

Upper Body & Abs Workout for Women (Part 2)

Upper Body & Abs Workout for Women (Part 2)

Upper Body and Abs Workout for Women (Part 2)

When I set out to film workout videos I look at three things: has anyone requested certain workouts, what workouts are lacking on the channel and what are my most popular and viewed workouts.

Hence today’s workout Upper Body and Abs Workout for Women – Part 2 (but, really guys can do this too).

If you have done Part 1 Upper Body and Abs Workout for Women  I thought you might would enjoy another workout to add to their upper body training repertoire.

And if you haven’t done Part 1 – there is no need to do any of these two in order (part one first and then part two). Just choose at least one upper body workout a week and do it please. That’s all I ask.
