So I got up yesterday, got ready to go for a run, opened the door, stepped outside and turned my butt right back around and came back inside. It was too cold out there for me (I’m a wimp) and it was really windy. I decided to come up with a 20 minute full body workout that I could do in the safety and warmth of my own home.
If you like to sweat or like to be sore the next day (which I do) then this 20 minute full body workout is for your. It requires no equipment which means anyone can do it anywhere. So no excuses! I would say this is a medium experience workout so feel free to adjust it to your needs.
This is a circuit workout so do each exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, do the next exercise for 30 seconds with a 10 second rest and then repeat the section 3 times before moving to the next section.
Without further ado, here it is! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Ok disclaimer: I am going to get all nursie! I can’t help it I guess. It is who I am. The info is important though.
In observance of Cardiac Awareness Month I have developed a cardio workout for you to try. According to The Heart Foundation, heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women…it is also one of the most preventable. Some ways to prevent this disease are to know your risk factors, eat healthy, and exercise.
You should either do 30 minutes of moderate cardio five times per week (brisk walking, swimming, or mowing the lawn) or 20 minutes of intense cardio three times per week (running or aerobic dancing).
Other ways to take care of your heart is to maintain a healthy body weight, eat diets low in salt, saturated and trans fats and high in unsaturated fats.
Good cardiac health is important for men, women, and children. It is good to instill good habits in our children so that it is not as hard for them to “get healthy” later on in life…hopefully they can already be healthy.
Ok so on to that cardiac workout shall we!
Repeat each section 3 times before moving on to the next. Let me know what you think.
