Change up your cardio routine with lower body cardio blasts....stop me if you've heard this before: cardio bores me to tears! So, I keep it short and fast which translates to 20 minutes of interval cardio per session...
Thankfully, all it takes is 20 minutes of interval cardio, 3-4 days a week to keep your heart healthy and burn fat...If you don't change up your cardio routine, your body will adapt and you'll be wasting your time! I know people who have done the same cardio routine for so long that repetitive stress injuries have set in!
So, get off the elliptical and treadmill machines and make your cardio interesting and more effective!
Here is the lower body cardio blast workout I did yesterday:
1. 10 minutes: sprint 1 minute, walk 1 minute
2. Step Ups (with knee-high platform): 4 sets, 10 each leg, 1 minute rest between sets (a knee high platform will work your hamstrings more which is important)
3. 10 minutes: sprint 1 minute, walk 1 minute
That's it! This workout will work for you!
