Workout of the Week: Cardio + Plyometric Workout

29 Jun

Happy Friday guys!!!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know I love doing at least one plyometric workout a week.  If you’re unfamiliar with plyos, check out this post.

Today I wanted to share with you exactly what I do in my 50 minute cardio and plyometric routine that I’ve been doing.  It keeps my heart rate up and blasts calories and fat.  Feel free to up the reps on any of the plyometric moves if you’re not feeling the burn!  Smile

 5 minutes cardio for a cool down

*Note, you want to do your cardio at a pretty intense pace.  Knowing I only am on the elliptical (my cardio machine I use at home) for 10 minutes, really gives me the motivation to push myself hard.  I’d say I go at about an 8 out of 10!  Don’t be afraid to sweat!!!***Remember to consult with your doctor before trying out a new exercise program/routine.  Always ask for help from a personal trainer if you need help with the correct form of the moves.***
