20 MIN HOME HIIT WORKOUT // No equipment, no noise, no impact

Video taken from the channel: Natacha Océane

In just 20 minutes, they discovered that participants burned between 240–360 calories, or 15 calories per minute. Considering the fact that a 150-pound person would only burn around 200 calories jogging for 20 minutes, this means one could torch hundreds of extra calories performing Tabata several times a week. There are no excuses for skipping this 20-minute workout. It does not require any equipment, therefore you can do it anytime, anyplace.

Here is the 20-minute workout circuit, which burns more calories than running: Squats: 20 seconds; Rest: 10 seconds; Jumping jacks: 20 seconds; Rest: 10 seconds; Push-ups: 20 seconds; Rest: 10 seconds; Lunges: 20 seconds. This 20-Minute Workout Burns More Calories Than Running. By Katie Lynch on November 9, 2017 in Exercise Routine. A fit life is a very busy life!

When you have only 20 minutes to squeeze in a workout, try this eight-exercise bodyweight routine that’s a favorite of Fit Life founder Lauren George. Research shows this type of interval workout can actually burn more calories than running. For best results, the exercises should be performed at a high intensity for 20 seconds, followed by a 10-second break. According to the American Council on Exercise, a 20-minute Tabata protocol organized in this way helps you burn 15 calories per minute!These 20 cardio workouts will still give you a major calorie burn without forcing you to run.

To test the calorie-burning potential of this type of workout, the American Council on Exercise put together their own 20-minute Tabata Workout Protocol. In just 20 minutes, they discovered that participants burned between 240–360 calories, or 15 calories per minute. This 20-Minute Workout Burns More Calories than Running! By Lisa Lalontseva If you don’t have enough time for exercise we are going to give you a solution.

People who did a 20-minute Tabata workout (consisting of full-body exercises like push-ups, burpees, box jumps and more) burned an average of 15 calories per minute, according to research from the American Council on Exercise. Compared to running, that’s nearly 30 percent more calories burned (a 140-pound woman running a 10-minute mile burns. What about if you weigh 185 pounds?

Higher body weight correlates to more calories burned at the same activity, but the “tipping point” remains the same. If you jump rope fast, you can burn about 503 calories in 30 minutes. To get about the same burn by running, you’d have to maintain just faster than a 7 mph pace.

For the 2013 study, 16 fit adults participated in a 20-minute bodyweight circuit, which included exercises like pushups, burpees, squats, and lunges.

It is a myth that doing prolonged steady state training—usually maintaining a target heart rate for 30 to 60 minutes—like aerobics or “cardio” is the best way to burn calories and achieve cardiovascular health.

This workout burns almost 1,300 calories, yet it is less stressful on the body than the shorter, faster run.

But when you ratchet it up to 3 mph in that same hour, you’ll burn 224 calories—a third more calories, and not an extra minute of exercise time.

But because you can sustain low-intensity exercise for longer than you can sustain high-intensity exercise, you can easily burn off more calories in, let’s say, 60 minutes of jogging (600 calories) than in 10 minutes of fast running (150 calories).

Similarly, when you run slower, you’re burning fewer calories per minute because you’re running at a lower percentage of your VO2max, but it takes more minutes to run that same kilometer.

Sure, you can burn more calories per minute running, but if you’re winded and have to stop after running just five or ten minutes, you aren’t able to fit in much exercise.

If, for some reason, they didn’t want to decrease their calories (by 10% or 200 calories), they could increase their activity level to burn an additional 200 calories instead (this would require anywhere from 10-30 minutes of added exercise per day depending on the intensity).

  • Thank you so much for having realistic facial expressions! For the longest time I thought it was just me that makes panting tired faces ��

  • First time I tried o couldn’t complete the routine. Had body aches. Kept on working out till the third day I completed the routine. It’s helped me sleep well. Glad I found you Natacha.

  • Hectic workout! But are Mia and Grace’s microphones off, or are they just rude? I felt so sorry for Anna trying to stay motivated for us!

  • Maybe it’s because a have a sportsband and not a heart rate monitor but how do you burn that many calories in a 20 minute rutine??? I’m doing 15-20 minute HIIT workouts and I burn like 130 calories, maybe my band is not that accurate��

  • This is going to sound rude. I think it would be wise for you to get an exercise science book and read it a couple of times. Your science is…a little off. Especially since you’re attempting to give health advice to a bunch of people.

  • Love this!!! woke up so unmotivated after a few days drinking and eating naughty food with freinds, this is just what i needed! my new fave

  • why isnt anyone talking abt how difficult halo slams are??? thats the only one i struggle SO hard to finish. it makes my legs go jelly too ��

  • the thing with Yoga is: real Yoga classes last between 60 and 120 minutes and there are a lot of different types of yoga. If you’re doing a long vinyasa flow it can be exhausting. In a 20 minute session, only 10 min will be training. It is comparable to a body weight or weight circle: Not all workouts are made to be short. conclusion: be flexible and do what is the most fun.:)

  • Honestly if you can do this workout, do it! I’ve been doing it since June and I do two sets sometimes three. The difference in my body is huge! When I started this I weighted around 116 and had a lot of fat around my stomach. Now I’m not sure how much I weight because it is not something I generally worry about but my fat is literally gone and i’m toned! Obviously I incorporated core workouts to get a faster result. I’ve also cut down sugar and other things but I still eat it once in a while.This is the only hiit workout that I enjoy and works for me so DEFINITELY try it!

  • Wow, I’m out from Germany so I have sometimes truble (is that the right way to say, I’m not so good in English) with understanding you, but I really do love your content and I admire you for being that strong.

  • Don’t you build muscle doing body weight exercises? Wouldn’t that be similar to weights training where you continue to burn? Or do you need more weight than just your body to do that?

  • Thank you, Natacha! I have been following you on IG and YouTube for a while and I have to admit this is the first of your workouts I have done-I’m so dead, but I did all 4 rounds thinking I was only going to get through two, so I’m really very happy. Thank you for sharing your energy and passion for a health lifestyle. I look forward to getting in better shape and form along with you.

  • Okay here’s the problem. I do this in the morning and take a shower, but I don’t always have time to wash my hair. Any tips? I don’t want to go to school with sweaty hair:(

  • I enjoyed it but the ads popping up and being unskippable was an issue so I will probably not choose to use these videos in the future. Thank you.

  • We’re all different, so just go for as many rounds as feel perfect for you! You’ll be a pro crushing these movements before you know!! ♥️��

    ���� My new HOME. Reload training programme + HUGE resistance band restock happens this Monday and I’m so proud and so excited to share with you all! ���� LOVE YA! ♥️

  • Be great if you test this again because research shows hiit really doesn’t burn many extra calories after? Think maybe you would ‘re do this test. X

  • If anyone is interested in quitting smoking the greatest success that i’ve ever had was by following the Quit Smoking Crusher ( ) definately the most useful method that I’ve followed.

  • I know this is old, but genuinely curious as to what your true resting heart rate is? Or your VO2 max. Have you ever had it tested? Also do you have any content on your experience with the Iron Man? Can you tell I’m bored? lol Also, injured so just dreaming of my next adventure when my foot heals.:)

  • Did the workout for the first time….ohh god just paused the video 200 times in 20 minutes…. I was going breathless… Hat’s off to you for an amazing workout….������������

  • I’ve tried youtube pilates and yoga, even hiphop dance, but I wasn’t really sweating the way I wanted to. But this video.. Got dizzy 5 minutes into it. HAHAHAHAHA. It looks easy but when I tried it, my 5month old quarantined ass was shookktttttt. Now I have a new favorite workout guru. Thank you Natacha!

  • i feel like i was doing the moves wrong because this was so simple, i have been working out consistently for 4 almost 5 months and maybe that’s why? but really i’m not soaking in sweat, and i’m not too dead… love this workout though!

  • Bodyweights and weightlifting respond to the same principle of tearing your muscle fibers and then healing them, thus, burning calories after you are done. I dont understand why you treated bodyweights as if its cardio? Weight is weight, resistance is resistance. Your body dont care if you are lifting your own weight or if you are lifting dumbells.

  • It looks like u’re in DTLA. I’m still in skinny fat mode and u’re right HIIT is best if u do it 5x a week and yoga is best addition to it. Whatever fits u ��

  • I started doing these intense 15-20min exercises 5 times a week and I dropped weight extremmely quickly and because I wasn’t expecting it, my food intake wasn’t matched… I became underweight within a month of doing these. Before I started I wasn’t big into exercise, so it goes to show that if you don’t train regularly and are self aware, it can very quickly go wrong. It’s been 3 months since I was underweight and it’s taken me a long time to get back to my before weight and keep my body healthy. I still regularly get very cold. Just wanted to let people know they need to be careful how often they do these exercises, for me it became dangerous for my body in a short space of time.

  • It’s good to find a workout that works for your everyday life too. For instance, I take public transit and I frequently have to chase buses and trains about to leave my ass so my running comes in handy. One time I caught a streetcar after chasing it ten blocks full on sprinting and everyone who saw me from inside the streetcar was very impressed hehe when I got on panting for dear life:)

  • Hey. Love your workouts. I had an ACL injury and I don’t want to give up on my workout. Could you pls suggest any sitting workout?

  • Me doing this workout and incredibly elated that am working out like Natacha ���� pats self in the back! #whiledying LOL

    Push through it, guys������

  • Love this workout but 5 ads played while I was watching it! Not sure if that’s something youtube controls or the channel, but it was really disruptive to skip ads five times mid-workout.

  • I enjoyed the workout. It would be helpful if the next exercise would be listed during the transition time instead of at the beginning of the following set. When you are beginning the new set of exercises you are just thinking about that specific exercise, not thinking about the next one yet.

  • I managed 3 rounds today!! Amazing how if you stay focused its totally possible to go that bit further. Thanks Natacha for sharing these ace workouts!

  • You want to burn the most calories in 20 minutes? Try Jumping Rope at a speed of 120-130 skips per minute. Youll burn around 200 calories in 20 minutes, and 600 and hour

  • 20 min isn’t really effective for anyform of exercise if that’s all your doing. Everyday. On occasion it can count as your daily movement. Hitt would be the most if your just after cal. Also yoga is a valid way to get fit, just not in 20 min, and not the kind your doing. Just Instagram yoga bodies, power yoga asthanga, vinasya etc. It’s also the beast thing you can do for your back and hips. Which is wayyyyy more important than how you weigh. Just wait till your in pain everyday, and then say that ain’t real.

  • it really motivates me to push through my tough workouts when I you giving everything you got to yours. I don’t have much time so I do 3-4 hiit workouts per week at home and give it everything I got.:)

  • Hello, I was just wondering which heart rate monitor and app you use as I’d really like to get one but I’m a bit confused by what’s on the market so far? Thanks xx

  • My calories burnt at rest are A LOT lower than your’s. However, I burn a good 120 extra calories within the first hour after a 15 min HIIT session. And i thing that is pretty damn good. Love live love HIIT

  • The thing with yoga is that the person should be aware of the body and do everything right to the point, I find yoga very effective in reducing body fat percentage. I find most gym class for yoga are too easy and relaxing to be effective, it became effective when you feel challenged.

  • What is the most effective at home with minimal equipment? With quarantine, I only have a yoga mat and I’ve been using a backpack filled with heavy stuff as “weights”.

  • Recently I watched Natacha’s video about hiit vs plyo where in plyo she takes longer pauses and can make the excercises more intense and with more quality. Yesterday I decided to do this with 60second pauses instead of 30seconds. It was amazing!! I did prisoner squats with jumping and my legs hurt soo much and I really could feel that I am working out better and more carefully! My apple watch showed that I had burned 408kcal and wowww.

  • Ugh, stair master is the WORST! Lol also I live on the 3rd floor with no elevator so I’d have to come home and do more stairs. NO THANKS lol

  • This is one of my favorite Popsugar workouts. I came back to this one very often and it still gets my heart pumping and challenges me!

  • HI! I am a high school student from Taiwan! I have tried many workout videos,and this one is the video which i like the most! thank you for making these videos!!! <3

  • Ok call me crazy but I freaking enjoy the stair master… I do some kind of HIIT there, normal walking then side ways and then a stair sprint ( which makes me literally dye ) but I feel great after that!

  • Calroies burned has nothing to do with heart rate. Energy expenditure is related to work over time which is how much force over distance.

  • Just finished this workout and I must say it’s just that “ A WORKOUT”. I was able to do all 4 rounds the only thing is the last exercise is a little bit complicated for me to get the right form. But it was just the first day of me doing it so I hope to only get better with time.

  • Hey Natacha, love all the way from India. However, I have one burning question that I know may look really stupid since I have worked out for quite sometime now and considering that this is one of the most basic of all questions that I should know an answer to. But better ask than do something wrong, right?
    I see 15 min HIIT, 20 mins, even 30 mins. long. The other day I read on a fitness & health page that HIIT workouts if you are advanced or intermediate level shouldn’t be more than 15-20 mins max. But I don’t get it. All those 30 min ones, or the 20 mins, they are intense too. They too aren’t that easy. I definitely feel an improvement from the last year I began. But I am still so confused when I look for a total body HIIT workout to do twice or thrice a week.
    Also, can I mix up my HIIT routine during those days I do it or stick with a particular workout routine for 3-4 weeks and then advance from it. I ask because I find some of the HIIT workouts mostly similar to each other. Or am I doing something wrong?

  • Can anyone tell me what to do? I just started working out( been only 3 days����)and my left shin is paining a the bone.. whenever I’m exercising like jumping rope or squats..
    I skipped my workout yesterday but it still hasn’t gone away that much.
    Please suggest! ☹️☹️ I can’t workout properly because of this..

  • This was my first time today doing these workouts and I made it through all four rounds!! That last move had me though ���� but I am really sweaty and tired! I plan to continue doing these!

  • Personally I find weight training hitt workouts the best cuz they build muscle so your metabolism is quicker. Like before my maintenance calories was 1200 and now its around 2000 (I workout every day)

  • I appreciate you, youre a lovely person with a big heart. Thank you for donating money from your videos. As well ass using your body for science �� Also love that you keep things real and relatable!!

  • Hey! I am new following your channel and I wanted you to know that I definitely LOVE whay you’re making! I have been watching tons of different sport channels and videos and you are the very first one wjho made videos which made me want to follow you and watch aaaall of your videos! I love your smile, the way you speak, you explain, you show, basically everything:)!
    I had one question, which heart rate monitor are you using? Is it a belt? And which brand is it?
    Thank you! And keep going you are awesome ����

  • This isn’t to beginners, wtf! almost I had an a heart attack omg jajajajajajajajajajaja delete from de beginners playlists!! Jajajajajaja

  • whenever i do weights i go high set high reps and moderate weight, once i burned 550 calories weight training for 65 min. for reference i am 125 lb:)

  • How about making a video about “how to slim your legs without gaining muscle” like how to make it slimmer and not wider if you know what I mean����

  • Umm.. that can’t be true about body weight exercises not burning more afterwards… you use muscle doing push ups.. it’s a strength move.. working the same muscle as a bicep curl.. so this just can’t be true but I get your point.. it’s strictly cardio that doesn’t burn afterward. Like running or jumping jacks

  • I always just do 10 minutes of a jog or any cardio basically to warm up. I cant do 20 minutes of any kind of cardio lol the rest I do weight training for and hour or so.

  • Any activity is better than no activity. Also, if you do HIIT but you are not pushing your hardest, then you are not doing HIIT. HIIT, in my opinion, requires a personal trainer to at least learn it correctly. LISS, on the other hand, is easier. There is argument in the scientific world about which one is best for weight loss but everyone agrees that any activity is better than none at all. Do what you enjoy, just don’t hurt yourself!

  • I love the stair master. I do 20 min on max level every day after my weight training and one day a week i do 65min followed by abs. Im a firm believer this is what got me to the lean I am. You can definitely learn to like it

  • Also I’m envious of your gym having a treadmill that goes above 10.0 speed wtf. I feel like the treadmills at my gym are holding me back from my dream mile time.

  • It feels so heavy carrying my own weight to be honest. The first 2 exercises are what i find the most difficult. So whenever i reach the 4th round, i only do at least 15 secs for each exercises. Soon, i’ll be able to achieve the 4th round completely. ��

    for those who are struggling, be patient and take your time. Slow progress is still progress. We can do it! ������������

  • I know my limits and rather than do this as hiit, I turned it into a plyo session. 30 seconds on 150 sec rest, rince, repeat and I completed the thing at max intensity.
    Imma do this 4x a week and see how it goes over the next month

    Btw, if you plan on following my method, just know it will cost you an hour. As per what she said in her PLYO vs HIIT, I think it’s worth it.

  • Makes sense. If you want more accurate results use a chest heart rate monitor. But big picture / comparisons similar. Also add weighted jump ropes. Thanks!

  • Best exercise is…….the one you do,…the one you like,….even if it’s walking and yoga… fresh air, and both are free, that suits me,

  • We’re you taking breaks in between exercices? If not, your heart rate is already elevated and you might register as burning more calories than the average person starting from rest or a light warm up

  • Not only was this inspiring but for a geeky little nut like me the scientific side was super interesting (: you’re amazing, never stop being all that you are

  • I used to do a 50-60min workout on a stepper/elliptical combo thing and i burned about 500cals. Do you think that is possible? (i did it with a high incline)

  • A lot depends on the individual body type and shape.

    A super skinny girl wouldn’t need to do lots of cardio and burn lots of calories as there would be a risk of burning into the muscle too. I’ve seen this with skinny girls who do lots of spin, they start complaining because they lose muscle.

    Likewise, an endomorph body type which is more curvy and holds onto more weightwould have to be careful doing heavy weight training, which is the typical exercise routine that a PT would get them to do. For those typesswimming, fast paced walking, barre, Pilates and yoga would be better to not add bulk to an already larger frame.

    We are all built differently and all respond differently

    You have to find what works for your own body type and doing something you enjoy helps

    If you like good music and don’t want to bulk up then look at dance classes

    If you want a slimmer waist then look to hot yoga and hot Pilates. Avoid planks and weighted ab exercises

    A really fab personal trainer on YouTube is Lucy Wyndham read. She only does at home workouts which range for a few minutes up to 15-20 for her walking videos. She gets results from her workouts and they are all so simple.

  • Completed another one of your hiit workouts. This one seems to be my favourite ������. I am a sweaty mess. And even though I wanted to quit after 2 rounds I completed it ��������. Goo future Taja!!!

  • I don’t understand how these girls do all this work without looking sweaty at all. I lift one weight and my face is dripping sweat

  • Would love to see part 2 but everything be different at home/quarantine workouts. It’s getting hard switching things up everyday when you can’t go to the gym. Thank you love the videos!!

  • Form wise on the erg (from a fellow rower) here are some Tips on using the erg (the rower)… make sure you rely on the leg portion letting the body lean to about 1o clock and the arms following thru. Let your fingers hang on the handle on the drive. When you go back up to the catch position make sure your arms go out first, then the body, then finally up the slide with the legs. Remember to keep the hands and arms nice and level, not letting the chain bounce around. Also when you set the resistance don’t crank it up to 10. Keep it around 6-7. Its to give similar resistance that water has when you’re actually in a baot

  • Love the Popsugar workouts while we aren’t able to go to the gyms. One thing I would like to see though is the equipment that we will need for the workout in the description. It would be very helpful!

  • I fell on my butt when trying to do that break dancer move when I was using my left hand to support myself. The other side was fine. I am going to need to find something to strengthen myself before I can do this.

  • Manager to get all the way to the penultimate set����proud of myself but will try and do the whole thing next time ����thanks for sharing!

  • This instructor is just amazing. I have done several of her workouts and literally every single one is a killer! It would be great to have the average calorie burn was added in description:) thank you xxx

  • I loved watching this. I hear so many people saying, things like, it’s so hard to get to the gym, or I just can never make that “class” and I say, do you love it? They say, no I hate it. So I say to them, find something you love and then you will want to go and it won’t be a chore. I go to hot yoga every single day of the week and I never get enough. I love it, so I cannot wait to get in that room, it clears my head and strengthens my body and soul. So, I could totally relate when you said…Maybe it not the most intense thing but it’s better to go more doing less intense workouts that you will actually do to then to go to high intensity types of workouts and never go or barely go. Very good advice.

  • As a PE teacher doing zoom class right now I love this short but insanely intense workout to do with my students. I was just thinking today how crazy it is that she can talk the entire time. It was funny reading all the comments about people complaining how this is advertised as a beginner workout. Modified it can be but not modified just look at the girl in the back left towards the end.

  • Did around 70% of this workout (without the hardest one I believe, ‘lateral bears + kneel-to-squat ) I did plank instead of this one. I measured with apple watch (woman, 29 yo, 79 kg, selected HIIT from the workouts) and the results are:
    ♥️total time: 19:49
    ♥️active calories burned: 186
    ♥️total calories burned: 219
    ♥️average heart rate: 158 bpm

  • I love how you advocated for EVERY workout. Made me understand weight lifting a little better as well. You are the best YouTube channels for fitness and health!

  • Hi just curious what the app is that you’re using to monitor ur heart rate and the calories u burn? Is it a Fitbit thing? Awesome vid btw!!

  • I do this workout twice a week (and a lower impact once per week) and I still have to agree with her every time ‘This is no easy feat today!!’ How does she do this?! =’)

  • I really enjoyed this video. My fav is deff the treadmill with a bit of the stair master. But running helps me get things off my mind since im focusing on my breathing. Kinda like meditating if that makes sense. Lol

  • I like to do different workouts. This one is hard I’m not doing another one until I can complete it like the instructor. So sweaty! ��

  • I love how realistic this gym workout looks. A lot of fitness people showed their best smile while workout and it made it looked so easy. But she is the one fitness youtuber that I watch bc she always being real! It’s just my opinion, I don’t mean to offend anyone:)

  • I smoked about a pack and a half a day for 19 years. One day in 2011, I decided to try to smoke one less cigarette each day, started with 30 until I got down to 0 a month later. ( ) I still smoke an occasional cigarette two or three times per year, but they taste nastier and nastier every time I do. Best decision I ever made!

  • Just discovered you here Natacha, and I really appreciate your down-to-earth, realistic videos…nothing is fake on you, and it’s refreshing to see someone with natural body parts, functional exercises and genuine tips here. Keep it up!

  • I love HIIT because I would rather workout at a high intensity for 30 minutes instead of jog for an hour lol. Plus I feel like I’m getting some strength in there too with burpees, mountain climbers, etc. I’m focusing on building muscle so I went from doing cardio 5 days a week to HIIT 3 days a week and doing weights 5 times a week.

  • Popsugar Fitness, do you know about how many calories doing this video will burn?

    And thank you for your great videos. I love the countdown clock. It makes me realize how easy it is to fit in a workout, no matter how busy my day is. Just thinking of all the time I waste looking at my phone, and how quickly 20 minutes goes buy, helps me make NO EXCUSES!:)

  • Folks im really thankful for these workouts, thatvypu share them for free, but this is NOT beginner. People who are out of shape can not get down on all 4s and contort their bodies like that. Just saying!

  • Natacha I’m so impressed!!! I am now 47, worked out most of my life, and am inspired and greatly challenged by this workout. I was able to complete it the first time but not without 2 days of being sore! I got a 22 yr old to do it with me and she could only do one round. Oops!! Love that girl. I want to lose some baby weight. He’s five now. I just began doing fasted cardio for 45 minutes and then your workout after. Today I only did 3 rounds because I got pretty weak. All my life I worked out in the evenings so this is an extra challenge. Could you please give me any pointers? I’m pretty strong but I’d like to lose fat. I’m 5’2″ and weigh 134lbs. I eat pretty darn good but I’m just having a hard time getting 10 lbs off. God bless and thank you for what you do. You’re a kick butt girl!!!

  • Gee I guarantee Hot Power Yoga would be much higher on the list. I do 1 hr per day (pretty much the ONLY thing I do with the occasional ‘easy’ runs with my dog) & my 57 yr old body is spectacular. Muscled AND Lean. So………

  • I love your videos ���� I’ve been having some amazing home work out sessions with my boyfriend & you always make us work our butts off!
