Spring Cardio Challenge Has Begun!

Posted Mar 15 2010 6:58am

I don’t know if you saw this post or not, but I decided I needed to step it up in the cardio department as the skin baring season fast approaches!

So I started a challenge group on the Fit Chick Express Forum if you would like to join us! Here are the details!

This challenge is going to help motivate you to get out there and add more cardio…Myself included!

Cardio, or should I say intervals/ body weight exercises are the ultimate way to burn off that belly fat and get that lean, sexy look!

What will this challenge include?

Each week you will set a goal for the week. Whether it be to do intervals on the treadmill for 20 minutes or bodyweight exercises for 20 minutes, or some type of cardio that will help you to move closer to your goal!

Along the way I will give you some mini challenges to help give you some ideas.

This was my first weeks goals:

So my goals for this week are to get in 3-15 minutes of intervals on the treadmill. My plan is to do it Tuesday, Friday and next Sunday. I did 22 minutes on Tuesday and 15 minutes on Friday, and 15 minutes on Sunday.

My intervals will consist of 2 minute warm up, 1-2 minute high intensity at or around 6.0 to 6.5 and 1 minute low intensity at 3.5. Continue on and end with a 2 minute cool down, totaling 15 minutes. These varied a bit, but I pushed myself even harder each time. I did treadmill two days and decided to do band intervals onSunday (video to come).

So far I am off to a great start! But as we all know, its can’t just be exercise that helps us to lose that belly fat or drop body fat. I need to clean up my eating a bit as well as cut back on the alcohol intake. Not that it’s been all that bad by any means, but I know if I want to get results, I need to cut back or get rid of it all.

OH…..and if you have been reading my blog or following me at all, you will know that I have been working on a Fit Chick Express Workout DVD! Well it’s finally done!

With the DVD, you will receive 6 Workouts, 3 Superset Workouts with added cardio and 3 Circuit Workouts, which totals 3 MONTHS worth of Workouts all for just 29.95!
