Burn massive amounts of fat in a short time
Sarah, a San Diego Boot Camp Instructor, demonstrates how to intensify your cardio workout with just 2 exercises and your own body weight.
This workout is a series of short 90 second circuits. 2 exercises back to back. Do the first exercise for 30 seconds at a very high intensity – really pushing yourself. Do the second exercise for 60 seconds – take this easier, this is your moderate to light recovery exercise, giving your heart rate a chance to come down a little so you can find the power to go all out again on the next high intensity set. Repeat this 90 second circuit for 14 rounds – that’s a complete cardio workout in just 21 minutes.
Using a Gymboss interval timer, set your 1st timer for 30 seconds and the 2nd for 60 seconds. Remember, there’s no rest between intervals.
The first exercise is plank jacks. Go All Out on this one. Then, for active recovery, do squats for 60 seconds. Repeat this circuit 14 times for a 21 minute workout. Make sure you warm up before your workout and cool down after to prepare your body and avoid injuries. Since you can do this workout anywhere – there’s no reason you can’t get a great cardio workout in, right?
