Hot Body Challenge: Look at Me Now Cardio Circuit

If you are having a hard time fitting cardio into your fitness routine because you don't have cardio equip, a gym membership or time to go out for a walk/jog -- well, this is for you. This is also for you if you want to change things up a bit, which I strongly encourage. Turn on some music that will make you move, go into your living room, bedroom, basement, backyard -- wherever -- and get to work!

Each exercise is performed for 1 minute. The routine below takes 10 minutes. Repeat it to get a full 20 minute cardio workout.

Things you'll need:

  • Open space
  • Jump rope (optional)
  • Timer
  • Some move your butt music! 

0:00-1:00 Walk in place-high knees
1:00-2:00 Jump rope (if you don't have one, do movements without the rope)
2:00-3:00 Jumping jacks
3:00-4:00 Walk in place-high knees
4:00-5:00 Burpees (example below)
5:00-6:00 Mountain climbers (example below)
6:00-7:00 Walk in place-high knees
7:00-8:00 Sprint in place
8:00-9:00 Jog in place
9:00-10:00 Run in place-high knees
REPEAT

Walk in place at the end until your heart rate comes down.
Mountain climbers

Burpees
