Today Jenny is back with another 12 Minute HIIT workout, and we are going back downstairs to activate your legs, glutes and thighs - the biggest fat burning muscle groups in the body. Because we are training for just 12 minutes, to deliver the optimal results, we want to make sure we engage, tone and sculpt all the major muscle groups, but paying special attention to the lower body to get as much bang as possible from today’s session.
Coach Jenny leads todays BodyRock 12 Minute HIIT workout.
The workout is 12 minutes in duration, with 4 exercises and 3 rounds of movement. The intervals are 50 seconds of ‘work’ and 10 seconds of ‘rest’, which in reality is just enough time to take a breath and set up for the next movement. If this sounds complicated, don’t worry, just follow along with Coach Jenny and listen for her cues. If you need to pause to take a break, or practice a movement, that’s ok.

The Full Workout Breakdown:
1. Exercise #1: Air Plane to Reverse Lunge to Forward Lunge - Right Side.
Even if your balance is not quite there yet, try a few reps. You can also set a chair beside you to help with your balance (keep one hand on the back of the chair and use it to help with your balance. You can also try the beginner version of this exercise that Jenny teaches you in the workout video. The beginner version of this exercise looks like this:
2. Exercise #2: Air Plane to Reverse Lunge to Forward Lunge - Left Side.
3. Exercise #3: Side Plank (25 seconds per side). Listen to cues here to switch sides.
If the Side Plank is too difficult, you can level down by dropping you knee. Jenny also shows you different ways to stack your feet to make this exercise more comfortable. The knee down variation of this exercise looks like this:
4. Exercise #4: Broad Jump to Reverse High Knees.
Drive your Butt back and engage it pre-jump.
Land softly on the balls of your feet. You don’t have to attempt a world Broad-Jump record here. Jumping forward even a few steps is perfect. If you can’t jump, or need a lower impact move to replace the Broad Jump, you can ‘Monster’ walk forward to replace the jump. The monster walk looks like this:
Reverse High Knees to get back into position. You can also turn it around and face forward for these High Knees if it feels more comfortable for you.

Today’s Positive Boost:
99% of the posts, articles and news items about exercise takes the tone of trying to convince people that fitness is something that they should be doing. The thing about the word ‘should’ is that it’s only ever really used when you feel compelled to do something - not when you actually want to do something.
I get it. No one, even our trainers and coaches, wants to exercise every time they know that they should. But what would happen if we started to instead focus on how freakin great a good workout actually makes you feel. Because exercise can be pleasurable - movement can make you feel amazing. There is the feeling of accomplishment in getting your 12 Minute HIIT completed, there is also a knowing that you pushed yourself to your max effort, and that it’s getting easier for you to apply focused action against your goals. There is the physical pleasure in the burn itself, in feeling your muscles stretch and tighten, in standing in your own physicality with confidence. There is a lot going on when you consistently start to train - especially when you align your diet and food intake - that brings a lot of noticeable pleasure to your day. Start to enjoy your new training regime, notice when things feel good. Allow yourself to enjoy it.

Too Sexy?? NEVER! I aspire to that ass!! Stop it ladies, we aren’t doing these workouts just because!! Im looking for smoother, firmer & more lifted features!!!
Loved the short workout.. it was intense enough to hit all areas and give a good sweat.. If I wanted more I could pair 2 work outs for a real good time.. lol
I am a BodyRock product user/customer.I swear by my weighted vest and pink thingy. I also find the pic very ‘unclassy’. It does not show the strength and power and over all image that your fierce trainers usually embody. It is just a typical ‘unattainable’ and offputting image that are everywhere nowadays- not motivating or realistic rather an bit lofty and sexualizing workouts. Just my opinion- I want to try the 12 min series.
I have been a member and have loved your site and products for the most part. But today’s photo for the 12 min. TMI!!! Disrespectful.
