But before you lace up your sneakers and head for the treadmill, know this: Yes, running at sprint and recovery intervals will help you burn more fat than you would with a steady jog, but Jessica Matthews, an exercise physiologist with the American Council on Exercise, says you’ll reap the most benefits of HIIT from full-body exercises like burpees, kettlebell swings, plank-ups.

Of course basic lifts like the squat, bench press, and pullup will always have a place in your workouts, but adding a few new lifts to your repertoire can. Kettlebell Workouts Working with kettlebells also offers the advantage of combining both cardio and strength training into one super-efficient workout session. Using a kettlebell you can perform fast-paced, compound movements that will challenge both your muscles and your cardiovascular system so you can burn fat and build muscle at the same time. The greater the resistance, the more energy you’ll burn. Today, we’re sharing some of our favorite arm exercises using a resistance band.

From your triceps and biceps to your shoulders and entire core, get ready to feel the burn. For the best results, complete three rounds of each move, and do 15 reps each. The most common are pressing exercises, flyes and dips.

Some are more focused than others and provide different results such as thickening and strengthening the chest muscles or others such as shaping or adding striations. Jumping rope is also great cardio which will raise your heart rate and burn calories. There are so many ways to get fit without weights, although weights certainly have their place.

  • I wouldn’t say give up and just go home if your getting discouraged on a intense workout and wanna stop then at least get on treadmill for 10min and walk some extra steps just to help add some activity to finish off not just make it so simple and give up.

  • I totally agree with this philosophy, I walk 35 min. every day, but I do HIIT mon,wed,fri,.and on the off days I am looking forward to my next HIIT.

  • I love this sustainability approach. We can apply this in so many areas of our life. However, in terms of training this is amazing, especially about body weight strengthening our muscles using leverage. Now i see why my motivation has gone. Thanks for being so passionate with your audience and not worrying about subscribers.

  • You can be consistent and intense. If you are advanced or an athlete than you have to challenge yourself for your body to respond. “Easy” workouts are pointless when you have been training for years. Can’t do 20 min workouts forever. And workouts aren’t always meant to be fun or not challenging..you are there to get results. Never heard anyone be happy to do burpees but people do them to get them results.

  • Brix, I think you are misconstruing this guy’s message. I don’t think his message speaks to consistency vs. intensity. The way how I interpreted his message is sort of like the 1rep max concept. That is, don’t go into the gym everyday aiming to max out on every lift. Go with the mindset of doing 50 60% of your work capacity with the long term goal of increasing the volume or your progression over time. Consistency is important but I think its wrong to say that it triumphs intensity. You can consistently go to the gym for years and not see any results. When you add in a little bit of intensity the game change in all aspects of life. Ultimately, consistency and intensity are both needed and should be viewed as one in the same in order to achieve your desired result. Think about some of our legendary athletes MJ, Kobe, etc. Would they have achieved their success without intensity? The consistency was there for sure but the intensity is what got them all the legendary status.

  • So, I just SUBSCRIBE. I have been watching you from a far and you said something that push me to subscribe. Now, I have watched that David goggins guy too. But when you said how people compare themselves to these you tube unreleastic workouts you right. Also, by you telling people it took you 3 years to transform you right again. People don’t want to hear that BUT I DO SO IM ON BOARD….

  • I’ve never heard anyone talk about this approach to exercise, ever. This is exactly what I was looking for! You just got yourself another subscriber.

  • Only good thing with me and this corona is that it’s forced me to cycle off my preworkout which I hadn’t done in at least 6 months.

  • Great video! I will say that I actually enjoy lifting free weights and my workouts are almost always 30 mins or less. My body does not respond to body weight exercises. It will maintain my weight and that’s it. My goal is to lose weight and my body simply responds to lifting weights. I do cardio as well like jogging because I do enjoy running but I do weight training alot more. I do body weight exercises as well but again I use weights more. I am mid 40s now and when I get the toned look I want then I will maintain with resistance bands and light weights. At looking at your video, I never thought of the concept that the guy explains doing less reps to last longer. I find myself doing that and the next day not hardly sore. I’m not a trainer or anything but this man is right and makes a good point. Again, excellent video!

  • I saw this for a video early in the pandemic… Thank you so much… I have implemented it totally, and I have not been perfect but I have not gained any weight and my fitness level is probably as good as it was when is pandemic started… I’m healthy and happy… Just bought a new bicycle, and I’m headed out to ride…THANKS BRIX. XXOO

  • Excellent advice!.particularly for those coming from the position of struggling to manage their weight for a long time. If ur a maniac like David Goggins and love the feeling of pain then this advice ain’t for you…but if ur like a lot of ppl and struggle with finding consistency to change over the long term, avoiding the association of negative feelings with healthy habits like eating well and exercise is a MAJOR ��!

  • I remember seeing this when he did the interview with Rogan…was and still is my favorite interview, he’s such a smart guy, the way he breaks everything down, the philosophies, working out..everything is incredible.

  • There’s an awesome book written by B.J Fogg (Stanford Professor behavioral studies researcher who taught the founders of instagram) called “Tiny Habits”, which literally expands upon the idea of starting small. In it he states that willpower is finite, and long lasting changes in habit or routine have to be rooted in tasks that are both easy to do, and highly motivating. When things are highly motivating but difficult, we deplete our willpower, and overtime our subconscious brain see’s no benefit in continuing it. Anything that is easy to do, and chemically rewarding(anything that boosts seratonin) that is repeated will eventually root into habit, which is why it is so fuckin important to start easy.

  • This can be a key for so many that are left behind. I think all of us can use this. I personally use this on any recovery day. I will need to reassess if I should be training that hard in the first place. Thanks great concept to think on.

  • I like this…thank you for sharing, because I needed this. I really have to wrap my head around that this is for life….so what’s the rush Nikki? Just keep going.

  • Real question: is it possible for a person who comes from an over weight family with poor genetics, being over weight/obese all their lives, paired with unhealthy diet and eating disorder (either eats too much, or nothing at all) able to lose weight and KEEP IT OFF? is their metabolism ruined by this life style + genetics? I’m asking for myself lol

  • Thanks for sharing this. I have not worked out in 2 weeks. I believe part of the problem has been everything going on in the world but another part of it has been I started out strong but because I wasn’t seeing progress fast enough I got discouraged. This is a journey so now I am getting back on track, and starting again tomorrow morning. Again, thanks for the words of wisdom and encouragement!

  • what about having an increased heart rate? if you only do what you feel like and don’t go hard and have not elevated your heart rate, then are you really doing anything to burn fat/calories?

  • Brix I definitely thank u and appreciate u for this video �� I’m a 250lb guy but stocky and I always used the weights but the next day I’m sore and I’m hurt to where I couldn’t go back and I never could finger out y. But the days I did hella push ups and body weight squats I woke up the next day feeling great and little to no pain but none of that dawned on me until this video so I thank u so much! And continue to keep the dope content coming one love my brother #brixfamily

  • Brix A Quality video. Shout out from the UK. Your video makes so much sense. I started gym 4 months ago and struggled to keep it up. Sustainability is key.

  • Wow brother, I really needed this video because currently I am increasing my workout daily and I’m starting to dread it. I’ve stop-started sooo many workouts and didn’t know why…this video is a blessing and I am so grateful you made this!!!

  • Man i could not agree more with that philosophy. I have countless times where i try to workout so hard 5-6 times a week and i ALWAYS end up gaining weight again. Thanks for this man, this what i really need. more power and god bless!
