I’m testing a NEW workout format with you today! It’s HEAVY, full body strength training on the front end, followed by a true bodyweight HIIT CARDIO BURNOUT to raise your heart rate and finish things off.
In this full body workout you get all the benefits of strength training, like building muscle and boosting your metabolism. AND you get the cardiovascular benefit and metabolism boost of doing high intensity interval training (or HIIT) cardio.
The workout starts with full body strength training. Slow, controlled reps, using heavy dumbbells.
Then it’s a true HIIT cardio burnout using bodyweight only. You’ll drop the dumbbells and push through 8 minutes of bodyweight HIIT cardio.
Trust me, you’re going to appreciate the sweat-wicking technology in lululemon’s NEW Everlux fabric during this workout!
If you like high-intensity workouts that work up a sweat, you’re going to love these fast-drying leggings.
These lululemon Wunder Train Everlux Leggings stay put. They’re the perfect high-rise, right compression, sweat-wicking and fast drying, all while keeping that buttery softness lululemon is known for. Get more of my favorite lululemon picks below.
There are SO MANY effective full body exercises you can do at home. Whether you’re picking up a set of dumbbells, a kettlebell, or using just your bodyweight.
When I’m doing a total body workout, I choose compound full body exercises that hit multiple muscle groups with one movement.
For example, three of the compound dumbbell exercises in this full body workout include:
This total body workout starts with brief warm up, followed by 8 minutes of strength training with dumbbells. Then drop the dumbbells and finish off with 8 minutes of fat-burning, bodyweight HIIT cardio and a cool down.
This workout is sure to help you achieve your fitness goals as you build strength and burn fat.
EQUIPMENT: One set of heavy dumbbells. I’m using 12 lbs in the workout video, and I suggest anywhere from 10-25 lb dumbbells depending on your fitness level.
INSTRUCTIONS: Let me be your personal trainer for the day. Follow along with the workout video at the top of this post. I’ll be sweating with you through each full body exercise, providing form cues and motivation.
Alternatively, you can work off the exercises outlined below (watch the video at the top of this post if you need a demonstration of these exercises).

Repeat x 2 Sets.
CARDIO — 4 bodyweight HIIT cardio exercises (45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of rest periods)
Repeat x 2 Sets.
As a group fitness instructor I’ve been a lululemon fan for years. I basically live in leggings and sports bras so I value the quality, comfort and fit of my workout apparel.
Whether I’m teaching a group fitness class or running errands I want leggings that stay put. And lululemon leggings always do the job.
I fell in love with the lululemon Align leggings during my first pregnancy with my son Brody (reference my favorite fit pregnancy products here). The lululemon Align leggings are still my go-to maternity leggings and postpartum leggings.
But I might have a new, all-time favorite legging — the NEW lululemon Wunder Train Everlux Leggings!
They have the same ‘buttery softness’ as the Align leggings, but are designed with a sweat-wicking, durable fabric (aka no ‘sweat marks’ on your butt after a tough workout, and they won’t pill).

These are my tried and true favorite picks for lululemon workout apparel and athleisure.
