BodyRock Full Body HIIT Workout #15
Today BodyRock 12 Minute HIIT #15 drops, and Jessie is back to lead us through 3 sets of 4 exercises. This format is still 12 rounds at 50/10 intervals, but we will be doing 3 rounds of each exercise back to back, and then moving on to the next dynamic exercise.
We are hammering your legs and lower body in the body shop today, but that doesn’t mean that Jessie for got your arms, chest and upper body. Exercise #3 in today’s workout is a full body toaster, and if you have the juice, try to complete even just 1 pushup from your toes - if you are not there yet, no worries, Jessie performs the whole exercise in beginner mode.
Jessie is a 40 year old master trainer from Toronto. She has 3 young children.
The Gear: Today we are using the BodyRock Weighted HIIT Vest, and the BodyRock HIIT Core Band. You can level up by wearing your BodyRock Ankle and or Wrist Weights.

The Visual Workout Breakdown & Trainer Notes.
1. Low side-step to back lunge (with the Core Band & 6lbs HIIT vest). This move is designed to target the Quads and your side Glutes.
Stay in a low stance the entire 50 seconds.
Keep your abs and core engaged. Holding your fists out front of your body will help you keep your balance and movement focus.
Keep tension on the Core Band the whole time, by not allowing it to go slack.
Be careful not to hit your knees on the floor. You can stop just before they touch down (hardest) or gently make contact with the floor.
2. Glute Thrust and Holds. Let’s give those Quad muscles a rest and move on to focus on your Glutes.
As you lift up, squeeze and engage your glutes. Poke them or give them a ‘rep squeeze’ to remind yourself to fire the muscles with each rep of the exercise. Try not to miss a rep.
At the top of the movement, you are going to open your legs against the Core Band to get the ‘abduction’ movement. Keep a steady amount of pressure on resisting the Core Band throughout the whole exercise.
If your Core Band slips, don’t worry - it happens to everyone - including trainers. Reset and keep going. As Jessie explains in the workout video, there is a ‘sweet spot’ for the Core Band placement - you can also keep your hands on it.
3. Bear Hover to Quad Extension to Push Up. Giving you dynamic moves that combine several exercises is an excellent way to target the full body, but it’s also great for establishing functional movement and overall agility and movement confidence. Getting up, down, lifting items - boxes, groceries, furniture - pushing, pulling - all of the motions that you will encounter living an active, healthy life - that’s what we training you for - the muscle tone and weight loss is just an amazing by-product of making you mobile and fully capable of handling anything life throws at you. This is one of those moves.
This part of the exercise gives you a really nice Quad stretch, but remember to keep your core activated to work those abs and give the whole movement more stability.
Walk it out with your hands and get into Push-Up position to target your chest and arms.
Jessie does her Push-Ups from her knees, but it you have the juice, try for at least one push-up from your toes (below). Also, is swearing a sign of honesty?
4. Hip Flexor Mobility Stretch. Most of us spend the bulk of our days sitting at a desk or in front of a computer. This can cause our hips to get incredibly stiff, and impact your mobility. This exercise is perfect for loosening and strengthening your Hip Flexors.
Slip the core band around your feet. You can also place a chair beside you and keep a hand on it for balance - although working to establish your natural balance without a support will help you establish your balance and coordination faster.
Work against the resistance from the Core Band to bring your knee up to as close to waist heigh as possible. If you can’t get it up that high, that’s totally ok - work to your limit and then we will progress you as we train together and you get stronger and more flexible.
If you don’t have a Core Band, you can do this exercise with just your bodyweight only (no band) or you can use the BodyRock Ankle Weights.
Our BodyRock Core Bands come with 2 tension strengths - Blue is easy and Purple is killer. They come together in a set with free shipping.
Peace out! That’s the end of today’s 12 Minute HIIT!
Today’s Positive Boost. You aren’t going to kill it every single day. Energy fluctuates depending on your food intake, sleep and a host of other factors.
