High Intensity Interval Workout for a Detox Cleanse

High Intensity Interval Workout for a Detox Cleanse

Working out while detoxing is important for helping you move out toxins quickly and efficiently so your body can heal and get healthy. Regular exercise helps enhance your body’s elimination channels and increases their effectiveness by stimulating bowel movements, increasing sweat production, and increasing circulation of lymph and blood which all works together to remove toxins and waste from your body. Exercise will keep your body strong and fit which is important for maintaining vibrant health. Exercise also releases endorphins the feel good hormones that help you relax which is great for reducing stress and anxiety.


Doing periodic detox cleanses along with eating nutrient-rich healing foods on a daily basis goes hand in hand with regular workouts. If you eat a bad diet and strictly focus on working out to burn the fat gained from poor eating habits, you will quickly release environmental toxins into your bloodstream as your body sheds the fat cells that were protecting your vital organs from these toxins. These toxins can cause some major problems if left in your body for too long. Eating clean fiber-rich and water-rich alkaline foods, staying well hydrated, along with detoxing and working out will help you quickly and efficiently get rid of these toxins before they do damage to your body.


With this in mind I asked Kodjo our resident fitness guru to design one of his signature high intensity interval training home fitness workouts to enhance our online detox cleanse. I recommend that you try this workout after the first 3 days of the pre-cleanse portion of the detox if you are a person who exercises frequently while your body adjusts to the detox cleanse and do gentle stretching and brisk walking for the first three days. If you don’t exercise on a regular basis do gentle stretching and brisk walking during the entire detox cleanse. Once you finish the detox cleanse you can continue to use this high intensity home workout to help you stay clean and fit at the same time!


Exercising can be done at home, can be done effectively without gym equipment, and can be completed in under an hour. You just have to make sure that you know what you’re doing, and that you give it your all. Check out Kodjo’s video that shows you how to get results with this 17-minute high intensity interval workout designed for a detox cleanse in the comfort of your home.


This maximum high intensity interval circuit workout is a fantastic fat burner and will help move toxins out of your body quickly. All you need to do this interval workout is a gymboss interval timer and your body. That’s it! No fancy equipment or gym memberships required.


We wish you much success with your detox cleanse and workout!


Here’s the list of exercises:

1) HIGH KNEES (45 sec)

2) SCISSORS (45 sec)


4) SKI ABS (45 sec)

 5) SPLIT SQUATS (45 sec)

6) PLANK PUNCHES (45 sec)

 7) LEG CROSS JUMPS (45 sec)


Once you complete the 7 exercises back to back, take a 30 second break and repeat the entire circuit all over again 2 more times for a total of 3 times!

  1. Hi Shelley,
    thank you for sharing these great suggestions.

    It is so good to have exercises we can do at home.
    For some people it may be good to easy into it, especially if we haven’t done any exercise for a while.
    Much appreciated!

      Thanks Yorinda! It’s great to have exercises which you can do in the comfort of your own home without spending lots of money on expensive gym memberships or fancy equipment. You do need to ease into exercise if you haven’t been active for a while so feel free to build up to a level that feels comfortable for you.

  2. Thank you for sharing this workout. I will give it a try as I do need to work my muscles a bit more than I do when I am walking. Those punch planks look hard, I may have to just do push-ups(if I can even do those.)

    Have a beautiful day!

      Thanks Janet! I hope you do try the video and you can modify some of the exercises if you feel you can’t do them right now. The key is to use this video as a guide to start getting fit by exercising on a regular basis which will help you move out toxins that make you feel bad. Have a beautiful day too!

  3. I love high intensity workouts! This will be a nice change from p90 and insanity. It’s nice to have a short list of exercise that can push you to your limit without having to put in a video. Thanks for this.

  6. Right here is the perfect website for anybody who would like to understand this topic.

    You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a new spin on a subject that has been written about for a long time.
    Excellent stuff, just excellent!

  8. Incorporating more fruit, vegetables and water into your diet and eating less processed foods should be encouraged as a way of life. No fancy gadgets and fad diets. Living off kale juice for 10 days in a January detox won´t help anyone in the long run.
