  • Jeff – looks like a cool workout I’m going to give it a try tomorrow. Quick q: is there a reason you use the lighter weight? Would there be any disadvantage to using a heavier weight – say 12lbs?

  • Yeah it’s really fun! No reason I used a lighter weight in particular. You should be able to perform 15 repetitions unbroken. Goal is to keep moving through each round, but 12 pounds would work great!!

Fitness Friday – Cardio Kick Up

What do you do when you’re strapped for time at home or in the gym? Is it worth it to still get that daily workout in even if you only have fifteen minutes? Totally. Many studies have proven that shorter bouts of exercise can be more beneficial for not only weight-loss, but adherence. This is a big reason why our program embraces the thermal walk. Fifteen minutes at breakfast, lunch, and dinner and you’ve already kicked up your cardio.

I don’t know about you, but I’m always trying to mix up the normal routine and break up the monotony of cardio workouts. At times, it becomes more enjoyable with a specific interval workout than to simply hit long duration workouts. Interval training benefits us by rapidly increasing our aerobic fitness level, building muscle, and prevents us from hitting plateaus. With that said, kick up your cardio routine with this quick three round treadmill workout.

*Modify the intensity with power walking or no weight on the squat thrusters.

Three Rounds for Time:

  • 60 Seconds Treadmill, Challenging Pace, 5% Grade or Less
  • 15 Squat Thrusters (Choice Weight)
  • 15 Dumbbell Swings (Same Weight as Thrusters)
  • RECOVER 90 Seconds to 3 minutes in between rounds
