Real Time Cardio #3

Mar 15, 2013 by



Hello my Loves,

Today I would like to present you with the Real Time Cardio #3. This one was only 16 minutes long, it was just a tiny bit harder than the previous two, but I really enjoyed it and I hope you will as well.

If you are new to Loving Fit I recommend to check out ” Creating Your Workout Plan ” post. There you will be able to see how I put together my routines, and you can find something for your own fitness level. My philosophy is: Form is always more important than speed, so WATCH YOUR FORM!

Things to remember before, during and after your workout

  1. Warm-Up ( since you are going to be doing this after your strength training routine, you should already be warmed up, but if this is the only workout you’re planning on doing, then you need to warm-up first ).
  2. Always Practice Good Form
  3. Stretch



Workout Explanation


All I was using in my workout was my Pull-Up bar and my Gymboss Timer. If you don’t have a pull-up bar, you can use your dip bar if you have one, or two chairs.

You can follow me along in the video, or you can do it on your own. If you don’t have a timer, you can follow mine in the video.

This workout has 4 exercises, 1 minute each, total of 4 rounds. I set my Gymboss Timer for 16 rounds of 1 minute.

  • 4 Jack Jump Squats & Drop Down with 2 push-offs
  • Jump-up Pull-Up & Kick
  • 3 Diagonal Jump Squats & 2 Back Lunges
  • Walk Forward & Push-Off


If your goal is to lose weight, you can do this workout twice ( 32 minutes total ) after your strength training routine. Or you can skip the strength training for that day and just do this workout for the total of ( 4 exercises for 8 rounds ) in a fasted state.

If your goal is just to keep lean and you don’t need to lose any weight, you can just add this workout after your strength training routine as your moderate cardio.


Have fun sweets and have a wonderful weekend!

  • Helen

    ???????, ??????????? ??????!!!

  • hi tatianna! okay,

    my body type : ectomorph (skinny, high metabolism, hard to build/keep muscle mass)

    goals: since any weight i gain goes to my stomach, i want to burn that off, and i want to build my leg muscles, i don’t really want to lean out.

    question: i saw your workout plans blog (i think i’m intermediate) and i was wondering would i need to follow that plan, or would i need to substitute anything to achieve the goals above?

    • Hi Danielle,

      Ectomorphs definitely need to skip on cardio for the most part. Do 4 workouts a week, but don’t do any cardio. If you already have weight on your stomach at the moment you can do fast pace weight lifting, but don’t do anything like running, jumping, etc.

      For abs it’s mainly diet, eat lot’s and lots’ of veggies, that fat will naturally come off your stomach. Stay away from anything fat free, sugar free, pretty much any chemical foods.

      • thank you! in those 4 days would i alternate between upper and lower body workouts? would it be 4 days in a row? can i do an ab workout after each one?

    hey there, first time in a while I’ve had a chance to look at your new stuff………looks fun… shoulder is slowly getting better, so soon I will be able to do your routines again, you make me sit up taller when I watch you, talking about slouching……lol…..bad habit at the computer……….have a great weekend :))

    • Have a great weekend sweetie!

  • LOL at the beginning I thought you were saying 60 MINUTES and I was like “giiiirl, that is a lot of cardio!!!” 😀 Great workout, again!!! Adding to my cardio “collection” 😀 BTW what’s with the blue straps??? I keep wonder all the time watching the video 😀 (If you explain it somewhere in the video and I didn’t get it, sorry for asking…) 😀

    • OMG in 60 minutes I will collapse 🙂

      You mean on my shirt? Those things came attached to the shirt, I have no idea why they are there, maybe they are supposed to be tied or something :p

      • Yep, those on your shirt :)) I think they are cute and funny 😀 I was thinking maybe it is some kind of inside joke from you, or just a funny thing you do 😀 I love your personality and your funny things 😀 Have a great day, Tati, I am off to bed 🙂

    The real time cardio workouts are tough. But i guess onlyhardwork pays. I will try these workouts with my other workout program. I can’t wait to see the results.

  • I did this routine with some modifications. I did it as my only work out for today and I wanted to push myself. The last ten rounds brought out my inner coach…I talked myself through it. 🙂 I needed the ten second rest in between.

    Warm up: Basic warm up routine & 5 minutes of dynamic stretches.

    I set my timer for 10 sec / 1 min for a total of 40 rounds.
    1. 4 Jack Jump Squats & Drop Down with 2 push-offs
    2. Door assisted pull up
    3. Kicks with two chairs
    4. Diagonal Jump Squats & 2 Back Lunges
    5. Walk Forward & Push-Off
    Cool down and stretching took 10 minutes.

    I did 3 rounds of this real time cardio and I followed with Zwow#56 and ended up with Alignment of abs workout. I finished with some streching exercises. I feel so light and full of positive energy after doing these workouts

    Hi Tati!!
    This is my first time trying one of your “Real Time Cardio” workouts — NICE! I did this on a fasted state (uh…major diet fail yesterday…planning to do second workout this afternoon :-/).
    Anyway, my only surprise was that the video quit halfway through and I had to dig out my timer and get going again!! I thought “real time cardio” meant that we could just press play on the video and go with you the whole way!! Oh well. I did 4 Rounds and now I’m a sweat puddle.
    Thanks for the workout, and I LOVED LOVED LOVED the pull-up kicks!!
