    We hit another milestone, and that means we get to celebrate by pushing ourselves with another epic 1000 calorie workout! Thank you to everyone who makes up the fantastic Fitness Blender community - we'll save the gushy stuff for later on the page because I know you're here for a good sweat, but we will just say that we could not do any of this without you.

    This workout uses a combination of high intensity interval training (HIIT), total body strength training, cardio, core, and more. Both warm up and cool down are included and the only thing you need is a set of dumbbells.

    In this workout, one of us does a high impact/advanced version, while the other demonstrates a more intermediate/low impact version. Follow along with the version that best suits you, keeping in mind that you can actually go back and forth between the two different versions as you need to to properly push yourself. Remember the balance between challenging yourself and listening to your body.

    We just released a brand new 4 Week Meal Plan - Eat Real Food and Feel Great

    Our 1000 calorie workout videos are intense, but they actually tend to be slightly less intense than some of our 25-45 minute workout videos. Because we're pushing ourselves for so long, these 1000 calorie challenges actually end up becoming more of an endurance challenge. It's fantastic for burning fat and increasing overall stamina, but because the workout places heavy demand on the body, you will not want to do this workout more than 3 times a week - keep in mind that more is not necessarily better when it comes to exercise; rest is important and too much intense activity can actually end up backfiring and getting you further from your goals.

    Grab your dumbbells, turn on some music that motivates you and get ready to work hard!
