Stefani's former trainer Mike Heatlie shared Stefani's workout with Shape, and we've got the details! Heatlie says that HIIT circuits combined with cardio sessions will get you the weight loss results you're looking for.

Do each exercise for the allotted number of reps, then move onto the next exercise without resting. After you've completed exercises 1-5, do 2 minutes on the rowing machine (or other cardio exercise) as fast as you can. Rest for 2-3 minutes, depending on your fitness level, then repeat the entire circuit three more times for a total of four sets.

4. Unbalanced Lunges | 20 reps: Grab two dumbbells of uneven weights (like a three-pounder and a five-pounder) and hold them above your head. Then get to lunging! Try it with a kettlebell if you can't do it with dumbbells. Here's how to do it.

5. Assisted Triceps Dips | 15 reps: If you're not around an assisted triceps dip machine, you can still get in some good triceps dips! Use a sturdy bench, chair, couch or box and get to work! Click here to learn how to do it.


6. Rowing Machine | 2 minutes: Don't have a rowing machine laying around the house? We don't blame you! Hop on the treadmill or simply jump rope as fast as you can for two minutes. Here's a secret: You don't even need an actual jump rope!
