As this month on the blog I’ll mostly be talking about time saving fitness tips I decided I needed to make an effort to bring back the weekly workout posts. So today I’m bringing you a quick cardio workouts at home, work or the office. Seriously you can do this one anywhere, no equipment is needed either. I’ve actually been super productive this month and I filmed ALL the workouts for the month ahead, saving myself some time! All I need to do is edit. I think I need to look into new editing software though as Movie Maker just isn’t cutting it anymore (not to mention it crashed today and lost me 30 minutes of editing!). So if you have recommendations please leave them in the comments, thanks!
The full video workout can be found below, or on my YouTube Channel, for immediate updates when I upload a new video don’t forget to subscribe to my channel! I also grouped all the workouts together into one playlist!
Quick Cardio Workouts at Home
So the basic premise of this weeks workout is to get your timer, set it for five rounds of 45s of work, 15s of rest. If you have more than five minutes, then you’ll do this twice, three times or even more. It’s an interval workout so it’s also great to put in between weight training sets.
First up is HIGH KNEES. Basically it’s running on the spot but bringing the knees up to hip height. I like to use my hands as targets. The 45 seconds seems forever sometimes, and this is one that does seem like it’s 2 minutes instead. It’s been a while since I did an interval cardio workout at home so I felt this sucker right away!
After 15s of rest we got into MUMMY SQUATS. Placing the hands on opposite shoulder keep the arms across the chest and sit into your squat. I have to say that my form isn’t the best here. My chest comes too far forward. I’m doing rehab exercises for my back so hopefully starting from scratch (again) will help.
Again 45s then 15s of recovery before heading into lateral SKATERS. Hopping side to side with the knee coming up. These are hard for me, which means they are something I should be doing more often!!!
After the 15s recovery it’s time to get the heart rate pumping with JUMPING JACKS. Yeah this one was not fun either. 45s is a heck of a lot longer than you realize! Or it’s just been a while since I did a timed workout!
Finally it’s PRISONER LUNGES. Prisoner style arms with hands behind your head, and elbows wide. Opens the chest and uses the muscles of the back and shoulders. Then alternate a forward lunge.
That’s the workout for this week! New workouts will be up every Wednesday this month and remember if you have suggestions for video editing software please let me know in the comments below.
Also let me know what kind of workouts you want to see on workoutwithdi?
