Cardio and Upper Body Workout

Cardio and Upper Body Workout

Cardio and Upper Body Workout

This workout is a:

20-minute low impact cardio workout

20-minute upper body and abs workout

43 minutes of fitness fun

Loving husband is back with me, moaning and groaning his way through the whole thing.

It’s pretty funny.

 What doesn’t kill you

I am a big believer in pushing your limits (loving husband would be my yin to my yang).

This is how we see change in the body. And that, my friend, is why most of us workout.

With that said I urge you to ensure you are using a heavy enough dumbbell for this workout (and for that matter for all of your workouts), so that you are truly challenging yourself.

This principle applies no matter what fitness level you are at.

Because to see change we must challenge ourselves.

40-Min Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

40-Min Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

40-Minute Total Body Cardio Weight Loss Workout

Non-stop cardio that you can do at home. A great weight loss workout.

Cardio is always something I have hated to do.

This hasn’t been from lack of trying to love it, though.

Through the years I have competed in 10km runs, half marathons, triathlons and bike races, yet 22 years later I’m still not a fan.

There’s a couple of reasons cardio doesn’t have my heart.

First, I don’t like spending a long time on any one thing. It bores the hell out of me! (With the exception of hiking. I can hike for hours, and maybe that’s because it’s so much fun dragging loving husband up and down mountains.)

I am also adverse to being in large groups of people. I love exercise for it’s solo-ness (Don’t get me going about having participated in the Vancouver Sun Run. The most crowded run on the planet, if not the galaxy, and where you need to train in the art of defense first, then running.).

However,  I do love getting my heart rate up and I love to sweat.

So… through the years I perfected a variety of home cardio workouts that keep my attention, while also improving my fitness – and workouts that don’t leave me with any damn saddle sores (damn you bike seat!).

25-Minute Bodyweight Strength & Ab Workout

25-Minute Bodyweight Strength & Ab Workout

25-Minute Bodyweight Strength and Ab Workout

A 25-minute total body workout, using no equipment, with emphasis on the abs!

Guess what?

Loving husband is back!

He has agreed to film workouts with me again, with the promise that he gets to do all the easy and modified moves.

So, I said of course and then conveniently forgot about my promise and made him do three rounds of burpees in this workout.

Oops. My bad.

Your burpee looks like crap

We have a special burpee and squat drill at the end and loving husband’s burpees were SO BAD all I could do was laugh.

And I did.

I laughed so hard I could barely do them (at least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it).

If anything, you have to tune into his version of the burpee – it’s at the 22:00 minute mark – and then watch it from there.

It should be a smile on those lips of yours.

Skipping Rope Circuit Workout

Skipping Rope Circuit Workout

Skipping Rope Circuit Workout

This 20-minute skipping rope circuit workout is the BOMB!

For 50 seconds an exercise we rotate through 10 exercises alternating between a skipping drill and a lower body or a core drill.

After the 20-minutes is up we finish off with a nice stretch and you get to end your workout all sweaty and happy.

Skipping Rope Facts

  • Jumping rope burns more than 10 calories a minute
  • The effort it takes to jump rope for 10 minutes is the equilvalent of running a mile in eight minutes
  • Skipping is a full body workout. You use your core to stabilize, your legs and glutes for jumping and your arms and shoulders to turn the rope
  • You can burn 200 calories in two 10-minute skipping sessions
  • Skipping is less jolting on the joints than running
  • Jumping rope is a weight-bearing exercise, so it can help improve bone density and stave off osteoporosis
  • Skipping helps improve your heart rate and blood pressure
  • Skipping also aids your coordination and balance

TRX Booty Lift & Abs

TRX Booty Lift & Abs

TRX Booty Lift and Abs

I presented this workout to my class back in January and they loved it! It hits all the target points you want to be firm and toned. The:

  • Glutes
  • Hips
  • Hamstings
  • Quads
  • Abs
  • Obliques
  • Deep core muscles

Now, a heads up though.

You must be comfortable with one foot in the TRX for this workout. If you are not, you can perform all the lunges and single leg squats without the TRX. Okay? Okay!

TRX Booty Lift & Abs Workout

  • A TRX.

Don’t own a TRX? Then try this leg workout instead – it’s pretty glute and ab focussed too.
