Quick, But Not Easy, Workout

I love workouts that incorporate strength moves, and throw in some cardio too. That’s why this week’s video is just that – plus it’s a quick workout ;)

It’s total body strength with cardio portions that will definitely leave you out of breath.

All you need is a set of dumbbells.

Go through the routine 3-6x through, or however long/challenging you want to make it. Or get creative, and add in another circuit. If you do this, pick 1 upper body exercise, 1 lower body exercise, and a cardio portion to do for 1 minute. Leave me a comment with what you decide to add!

Let me know if you try it out & what you think. What’s your favorite exercise that requires just dumbbells?

Cardio Blast Workout!

I did this workout on Wednesday and it is killer! Yes, there are some upper body moves involved in my “strong legs” workout, but trust me, you will really feel the burn in your legs.

Usually, I do non-equipment workouts, but I figured I’d change it up and include one you can do at the gym. If you don’t have a pull-up machine, you can use the lat pull-down machine.

I threw in a few upper body moves to make sure you also hit those major muscle groups (back) and keep your heart rate up while giving your legs a short break.

Final words: burpees = killer

stronglegs

 

Let me know if you try this out and what your thoughts are!
