"The harder you work, the faster your body will change," says Jillian Michaels in her brand new, groundbreaking seven-minute seven-minute workout challenge designed for Yahoo Life readers. The legendary trainer developed the program for busy people of all fitness levels, with an exclusive reward for you too!
Day two (here day one) training is all about high-intensity interval training, also known as HIIT. HIIT workouts are great fat burners because you need to exert yourself to the maximum in short intervals - much like doing a series of sprints instead of a marathon. If you put a lot of stress on your body for short jumps followed by short rest periods, your system has to adapt quickly and the turbocharger charges its calorie-burning powers.
Not only will you burn calories during this HIIT challenge - your body will continue to melt fat long after you finish. "I know it can sound a little intimidating," says Michaels, "but I promise you we'll do just that and you'll feel great."
Oh, what about that reward?
This body carving challenge is just the beginning. Michael is offering Yahoo Life readers an exclusive offer on their fitness app, which comes with a range of effective 7-day workouts and more. Enjoy a 7-day free trial and 3-month subscription for just $ 19.99 (common price $ 44.97) and 12 months for $ 59.99 (common price $ 179.88).

Check it out at the top of this article. It's a full-body HIIT program that allows you to start your entire system with 10 dynamic circuits that you complete in about 20 seconds each. "These very dynamic, explosive exercises burn a lot of calories while we're doing them, but also burn a lot of calories after the workout is over," says Michaels. This 7-minute workout contains 12 movements to tone the body. Here's a preview of 3 of them - watch the video for the rest!
Boost your metabolism with burpees

Is there any dreaded and more effective exercise than the infamous burpee? Michaels is very intense and this aerobic strength movement is supposed to get your heart racing and burn your calories. "Explode off the floor," says Michaels, showing you how smoothly the transition from the traditional push-up position to an upright position is.
Burn fat fast and fight slack arms with Speed Bag

Have you ever marveled at the chiseled bodies of professional boxers? Speed bag training is one of the most important tools in your fitness arsenal. Punching with an invisible speedbag per Michaels' coaching burns an incredible amount of calories, engages shoulders and biceps at the same time and aims at soft, sagging upper arms. "I get it. At the moment, exercise is sometimes not fun," says Michaels. "But the results? That's what you're fighting for."
Increase bone density and make your heart beat faster with Speed Rope

One of the easiest ways to get your heart rate and metabolism up is with a good, old-fashioned jump rope - an athlete favorite. And with Michaels' Speed Rope Challenge, you don't even need a rope! "Upper and lower body synergy like you're really jumping rope," Michaels says, "for 20 seconds and focus on your breathing. This exercise should be done quickly and your feet shouldn't be off the ground. Not only does it burn fat , but also improves coordination, helps with bone density, and strengthens your legs.
