It’s time for a new workout! Today’s workout is a 15-Minute Full Body HIIT. You will definitely work up a sweat, and get in a great cardio/fat burn with this one!
Jesse got out from behind the camera, and taught this workout. I always enjoy when he leads the workout, because he has a great sense of humor & energy as he does the routine. As most of you know, Jesse is a runner. He does BenderFitness workouts as cross training to keep him strong, healthy, and efficient for his runs.
The interval workouts are a great VO2 max workout, that can help improve your running speed & strength. As a bonus, they are fantastic for burning fat & building lean muscle. Maintaining muscular balance helps runners prevent injuries. Cross Training is imperative for longevity as a runner, athlete, and for your overall health & fitness.
Jesse and I are both Occupational Therapists. Our job is helping people achieve their highest possible level of function, and the greatest quality of life possible. We bring that same approach to our workouts. They are designed to make you healthier, stronger, more fit & improve your endurance. Better Health=Better Quality of Life. The workout bonus: it can also make you look & feel like a superhero. Big thanks to Jesse, rocking his Wolverine shirt in today’s workout.
I’m glad that he gets to show you all that these workouts are great for men too. They can even get a phenomenal endurance athlete/distance runner breathing heavy & working up a sweat!
Have fun with this workout! I have a new core workout for you tomorrow!

Dying laughing. The end credits x-jump comment and “That probably looked bad…” 😀 This was great. Thanks for the great workout and the laughs. 🙂
Jesse is funny! It didn’t seem like he was even really breathing that heavy! Probably because he’s a runner, he’s in good shape!
