The worst thing ever is a boring cardio routine. Hate it when you feel like you just get on the treadmill every day? Here’s a gym workout that jumps around for an interesting 40-minute cardio workout (add some stretching before and after!)
Warm up: Walk/jog for 3 minutes
Sprints: 1-minute sprint, 1-minute walk for 10 minutes.
Stairclimber: 10 minutes, medium intensity
HIIT: 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off
Jumping Jacks, high knees, mountain climbers, burpees —> rotate for ten minutes
Cool down: Elliptical 3 min
Then always stretch! Static stretching goes after your workout.
- Push to full intensity in each exercise, except for on stairclimber. You want to get the most out of this.
- Drink plenty of water
- keep a minute transition period between each exercise
- remember that each minute you spend at the gym is doing something good for your body.
