The Barry's Bootcamp-Inspired HIIT Workout


As a former instructor at Barry's Bootcamp in Los Angeles, I loved everything about it. Long before I was a trainer there, it was my go-to workout of choice. The lighting is awesome, the music is killer, and the workouts are super intense and challenging! If you're not familiar with the Barry's Bootcamp workout, it's broken up into 30 minutes of floor (strength/resistance) work plus 30 minutes of treadmill work. The intervals can vary—5, 10, 15, all the way up to 30 minutes. It's really the instructor's choice.

This 10-minute HIIT bench workout is essentially the floor portion of a Barry's class. If you want the full Barry's Bootcamp experience, checkout my FREE printable treadmill and running workouts. Note: I suggest you complete this bench HIIT workout first, then go into a treadmill interval. If you have more time available, repeat each portion 1 to 2 more times through for a 40-minute or 60-minute workout. If you want to change up the "floor work," check out more of my Barry's Bootcamp-inspired bench workouts.

This workout is nonstop high-intensity interval training with a focus on total-body strength! You'll hit your legs, glutes, arms, back, chest, core—pretty much everything from head to toe. You'll need a bench and a set of dumbbells. If you don't have a bench, you can totally do all these moves without one; the bench just allows for a little greater range of motion on some exercises. (Check out this video to get warmed up.)
