Hot Cardio Madness Workout
Today’s’ workout was really fun and it was some serious cardio! I absolutely loved this workout, it was tough, not boring and all over the place!
It was 30 minutes long ( my perfect number 🙂 ) and it had 7 exercises total. In the last round I was really struggling and loosing my breath, but I felt incredible once I was done.
I am also did some adjustments in my nutrition as I wrote in yesterday’s post ” My New Diet Refinement “, so far I already noticed my sugar withdraws, I felt a little cranky all day, and I was thinking about the container of honey I have in my fridge ( like Winny The Pooh, LOL).
Now let’s get to the workout!
Hot Cardio Madness Workout Video
For this workout I was using a brick ( as an object to jump over ), you can use any object laying around the house. I was also using My Pink Lebert , but you don’t have to use this equipment, you can substitute with two chairs ( like I showed you in ” Love Your Body Workout “, make sure you place a mat under the chairs so they don’t slide ).
Set your timer Gymboss Max for two intervals 15 seconds ( rest interval ) and 1 : 00 ( maximum effort ), for the total of 24 rounds, you will go through the whole routine 3 times. If you don’t have Gymboss you can use this free online timer ( so no skipping your workout 😉 )There is 7 exercises total, but one of them is on each side ( that’s why there is 24 rounds ).
Beginners: Set your rest interval for 20 seconds and your max interval for 35.
Always write down your reps!
- 1. Jump over and drop down exercise ( every jump and drop down counts as one rep )
Notes: You can pick which ever object you like to for a jump over, I just happened to have a brick at my house.
Start at one side jump over an object and drop down, your stomach should touch the ground, push off with your arms.
- 2. Half burpee & kick up ( one leg per interval )
Notes: If you are a beginner don’t do the push-up, you can also do this exercise with both feet on the ground.
When doing a kick up squeeze your butt on the standing leg.
- 3. Wall Mountain Climbers
Notes: If you are a beginner do this exercise on the floor.
I did this exercise wit a tempo, not for speed but quality. You should always be in control of your body ( not just jumping back and forth ). Every muscle in your body should be working.
- 4. Jump Lunges with a rotation
Notes: If you are a beginner, you can do just regular lunges without jumping.
Always keep your back straight.
- 5. Side to side leg lifts
Notes: If you are a beginner bend your legs, this will make this exercise much easier to do.
In this movement you are using your abs to lift the legs.
- 6. Twist Jumps
Notes: If you are a beginner just do regular squats ( no jumping ).
Always remember to keep your back straight.
- 7. Hanging Abs Twists
Notes: If you are a beginner do just regular knee raises.
I was bending my arms just a little to give me the extra push.
