You guys liked our last 1000 calorie workout video so much that we wanted to expedite the process to bring you a new one as soon as possible. Sure it takes hours (and hours, and hours...okay, maybe days) of editing, but for as excited as you guys get for the release of our new workout videos, I think that we are probably just as excited, if not more, to build and share them with you.
This new at home 1000 calorie workout has all of the same elements of the last one, weaving in multiple types of training to keep you from getting bored, even though the video is nearly an hour and a half long.
If you decide to brave this workout, you will go through a 6 minute cardio warm up, a 32 minute HIIT routine, 25 minutes of strength training, 11 minutes of abs, and a thorough cool down and stretch. We try to keep it fun, but make no mistake that this will be work!
We give you a couple of water breaks throughout the video and we strongly suggest that you take them. In fact, this workout is long enough that it’s not a bad idea to even take a snack break, just to make sure that you have enough fuel to make it through the entire routine with your 100% best effort.
About the 1000 calorie burn
Not everyone will burn 1000 calories doing this video, but some will burn over 1000 calories. A lot of people use heart rate monitors to estimate their burn during a workout; do keep in mind that a heart rate monitor is notorious inaccurate for calculating caloric expenditure (in terms of both over and underestimating). Everyone is different, and exact calorie burn depends on a large number of variables specific to each individual. Make sure that you are pushing yourself through the duration of the workout to ensure that you are expending energy towards the top range of our estimates. Do remember though, that it’s not all about calorie burn; exercise is about feeling good, feeling strong, clearing your head, and maintaining your health and energy.
How many times a week can I do this workout?
This routine has several kinds of training that the body needs time to recover from (HIIT and strength training, specifically). For that reason, you don’t want to do this routine every day; three times a week would be great, and you would ideally combine it with some of our lighter toning and lower impact cardio workout videos on those other “off” days when you aren’t doing this video. With that said, take into account you would be better off mixing up our many, many workout videos instead of doing the same ones over and over.
We hope you enjoy this workout! Let us know if you want more like it, we always listen & try our best to deliver.
