About a week ago, I released my second online course that helps you to beat gym boredom… because gym workouts can be boring, if you're doing them wrong! This Dumbbell HIIT course helps you to really make the most of your workouts, without getting bored at all.
All workouts in this dumbbell HIIT course are done with two dumbbells and they last about 12-15 minutes. If you want to try out one right now, head over to the course and check out the free Workout #4 of the Beat Gym Boredom! course.
But here's a bit more about the course…
Why This Dumbbell HIIT Course?
I got the idea to put together this dumbbell HIIT course after a conversation with someone who regularly comes to my bootcamp. He told me that every time when he travels and can't come to the bootcamp, he tries to workout at the hotel gym, but those workouts never feel challenging enough.
He would go to the hotel gym, only to find that there's not enough equipment for him to put together a decent workout. And even if there was… he wouldn't really know what to do with it.
He would try and do something, but most of the time, end up just sitting around and not getting out much of the whole hour he spent there.
What a waste of time, right?
Save Your Precious Time on Quality Training
I work out with dumbbells quite a bit, but my workouts are pretty short. BUT, they're damn hard! You know, this kind of hard that your heart wants to jump out and you're pouring some serious sweat.
They're the kind of workouts that you want to do when you're traveling–something that saves your time but at the same time, is effective.
If you travel for work, you probably don't have hours between your conferences, client meetings and dinners. And if you're on a vacation, there's about a million and one other things to do than spend several hours at the gym.
And.. if you're impatient person like I am, then you just want to get the workout done and move on with your life, vacation or not. I'm busy all the time, I'm pretty sure you're too! Keeping your workouts short doesn't mean that you don't prioritize them. It simply means that you know how to workout smarter.[tweet_box design=”default”]Keeping your workouts short doesn't mean you don't prioritize them.

You may know that I use various workout equipment for my own workouts, for training my clients and also for teaching the bootcamp classes. But many gyms, especially smaller hotel gyms, don't have sandbags, tires or even kettlebells or medicine balls that I love to use so much.
But what most gyms usually have is at least a few sets of dumbbells. No matter how old or modern the gym is, there are some dumbbells. That's all you need for doing the workouts in this dumbbell HIIT course.
What's In This Course?
In this course, I show you 20 dumbbell exercises that are compound, full body, multi-joint exercises–you know, all the things that make a workout as efficient and useful as possible. Because who wouldn't love to get a ton done at once? We're talking about MED here–Minimum Effective Dose, or the “dose” of work you have to do to get maximum results. That's what you get from these workouts.
I'm very sure that in this course there are many exercises that are new to you. No regular biceps curls or triceps kickbacks! Not that there's anything wrong with them if you like them, but again, in this course we focus on getting a lot done in the shortest amount of time, which means that if we do do biceps curls, we combine them with something to make the exercise more useful–and way harder.
Then, those 20 exercises are put together into 10 dumbbell HIIT workouts. You'll find demos and descriptions for every single exercise, and full videos where you can see me huffing and puffing while doing all 10 workouts in their full length. That way we can workout together 🙂
I've tested out every single one of these exercises and man, they ARE hard! I can promise you that they work if your goal is to lose fat and get fit in a very short amount of time!
What Do You Get?
Now, we already talked how these exercises save your time. But there are more reasons why you may want to try these workouts out. As you may know, HIIT workouts are awesome fat burners, so if that's your goal, these workouts are meant for you.
Why fat loss?
Because, let's be honest here: That's the main reason why so many people start working out or already workout on a regular basis.
Sure, working out also makes you feel good and makes you a better person (are you someone who's company is not that enjoyable when you haven't been able to workout for some time? ahem.. I am), but most of us really want to shed some fat too.
These workouts also help you to get stronger and improve your stamina. You can combine them with your main sports–running, weightlifting, cycling–and sprinkle a few of them into your weekly workout schedule.
How To Do The Workouts?
I recommend you to do these workouts 3-5 times a week for maximum benefits. They vary in length and exactly how long they take depends on your fitness level and how fast you're able to do them. However, they'll take you around 12-15 minutes per workout, but there are also a few shorter and longer than that.
You should work as hard as you can, but always prioritize the form. No sagging hips when doing planks or rounded backs when squatting! Rest as needed, but keep the rest periods as short as you can.
If you're willing to try this course, I have a little bonus for you–a FIT Log that helps you to stay accountable to these workouts and adopt a healthier lifestyle in general. Because just getting the course is not enough, you actually have to do those workouts 🙂
This is where the My Fit Log can help you. It reminds you to do some simple things every day and every week, that will help you get closer to your fitness goals.
You can check the course out here. If you have any questions or concerns at all, I'm all ears! Let me know how it went, you know that I always love to hear from you.
