Welcome to an amazing full body workout. This no equipment exercise routine will work all of your muscles, with a special emphasis on building a strong core. We are combining both cardio and strength based exercises.
I originally wrote this workout for my brother-in-law about ten years ago when he wanted to make some lifestyle changes. It was very fun re-visiting and re-filming this routine. I originally filmed it for reps, and this time around I switched it to a timed, interval format. The change to intervals definitely increased the intensity. In fact, my core muscles maxed out during this routine a few times. The exercises are straight forward, but challenging.
You will find both versions of the workout video below.
I filmed two rounds of this workout, so the total workout time is 20-minutes. I finished my workout with a 30-minute walk on the treadmill. I used incline 4-6 and speed 4.0. The bonus cardio is optional.
HIIT the ReBoot…on the 12-Week Bikini Competition Prep Workout Series
I started re-filming my 12-Week Bikini Competition workout series (this is the third workout in that series). It’s one of my favorite workout series that I’ve written, but I originally filmed the workouts 10-years ago. Since then we have improved our lighting and editing skills, so I decided to re-film and update the workouts to timed routines (many of them were originally completed for Reps.)
It’s a fun and exciting challenge. I’m also interested to see how my body responds to the workouts. When I originally filmed this series I did it to celebrate my 30th birthday. I was 29-30 years old when I filmed them. I am now 40.
One of my goals in re-filming this series is to see if I need to modify the workouts or change anything to make sure the routines stay effective. It’s been great getting in some high intensity workouts, and it has had a positive impact on my energy and fitness level so far. The first two new Re-Boot workouts are available on my membership site, or you can find the original workout videos here: https://www.benderfitness.com/bikini-competition-workouts-12-week-program.
Live Classes Coming Soon!
I’m planning on sharing more Live workouts. Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite platform to use. I can do Lives on Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube.
I’m also planning on offering one paid live workout with me per month in my membership (included for anyone who is a member, but open to anyone). That class would be 40-55 minutes long. I will schedule that out ahead of time, so be sure to keep your eyes out for that!
I hope you enjoy today’s workout! Have fun, get sweaty and let me know how it was for you.
