7-Minutes in HIIT Heaven: The Workout Routine You Have to Try

August 18, 2015 2 min read

In a world where many of us are barely fitting in enough time to breathe, it's easy to use lack of time as an excuse for not getting a workout in. But the fitness industry has responded with a plethora of ways to incorporate short and effective routines to keep you fit and focused. One of the biggest phenomenons in the workout world is HIIT, high intensity interval training. Short and sweet, these routines pack a punch! And though your first few go-arounds may have you shaking your head at the word "burpee" they are an incredible way to get fit fast.   Before some people even try it out however, they're concerned that the short amount of time allotted for the workout seems like a waste. People are used to spending 2 hours in the gym, an hour at a cycling class, and 30 minutes or more going for a run. But recently, a study was published in the American College of Sports Medicine's Health and Fitness Journal which found that a few minutes of pushing it to your max can accomplish a lot in record time — even more than a traditional workout. We're talking a whopping total of 7 minutes. The journal's interval workout consists of 12 exercises. Done at an intensity of eight on a scale of 10, they each last 30 seconds and have a 10-second break in between. The circuit can be repeated for a longer workout. Here are a handful of moves to incorporate. 1. Warm up with jumping jacks.   2. Get low with wall sits.   3. Power up with push-ups.   4. Work your core with crunches.   5. Tone your arms with tricep dips.   6. Get vertical with chair step-ups.   7. Work your booty with squats.   8. Tone all over with plank.   Are you a fan of the HIIT workouts? What benefits have you noticed? Source: Popsugar

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
