Short, Effective Cardio Workouts

You know that cardio bores me to I keep it short, fast and tough to get max benefit (calorie burn, fat burn, body sculpting).....All it takes is 20 minutes each workout! Long, slow cardio sessions wastes time and eats away at your muscle mass.

This is a great circuit cardio workout:

1. Step Ups (knee-high platform), 10 each leg, fast
2. Pullups, 10 reps, moderate pace
3. Two hand medicine ball chest pass, 10, fast
4. Prisoner Squats, 12 reps, moderate pace
5. Tricep Dips on Bars, 10 reps, moderate pace
6. Back Extensions (with 35 lb. plate), 15 reps, moderate pace

Rest 2 minutes between circuit. Repeat circuit 2 more times.

That's it! Give it a try...if you need more rest, take it.

What do you do to keep cardio interesting?

  1. That would definitely get the heart rate up. I do a lot of those exercises -but not sequentially and not for cardio. Good ideas, Mark!

  2. Try it Heather! You would like doing cardio that way....I have to "do things" when I do cardio to keep me interested!
