The 15-Minute Full-Body HIIT Workout to Burn Fat

This intense routine will torch calories while you build muscle.

When it comes to workouts for leaning out, longer isn’t always better. What’s more important to getting those fat-torching benefits: Intensity. By employing a HIIT scheme and using multjoint exercises, you’ll not only burn calories during the workout but for many hours after, as those hard-worked muscles continue to crave energy to restore equilibrium.

By combining bouts of compound strength training moves with high-energy cardio—in the form of burpees—“this workout is designed to burn fat while sculpting your total body,” says Derek DeGrazio, trainer and managing partner of Barry’s Bootcamp South Florida. “Best of both worlds!”

For the compound strength moves, use a load that you can safely control for the one-minute duration. And don’t scrimp on those rest intervals—they ensure your body is ready for the next round of weight-training intensity.
