Unlike most forms of cardio, swimming makes it possible to work your body without the harsh impact to the joints. And just like land-based exercise, swimming offers a long list of benefits, including increased muscle tone and strength, improved flexibility, and reduced resting and exercise heart rates.

InHomeCardioThatsEasyOnYourJoints.jpgIf asked to name an in-home machine that can accomplish several tasks in one workout, most of us would probably say the treadmill. After all, a treadmill has numerous health benefits for some of the most popular fitness goals seen today, including weight loss, cardiovascular improvement and cholesterol reduction. Cardio workouts are excellent ways to achieve the goals listed above, and a treadmill is a great choice that can fit in nearly any home or apartment.

But not so fast! For some of us, impact from running can take a toll on the body, especially in our knees. Fortunately, you don’t need to skip your workouts, because we have solutions to bypass that pesky issue.

Last month’s Upper Body Blast should have your arms looking strong. This month it’s all about the lower body.

Begin the warm-up with 5 – 10 minutes of low to medium intensity cardio, then switch to higher intensity cardio for 5 minutes to start your workout. Immediately following the cardio, begin the strength exercises listed below. Repeat the cardio and strength for 3 repetitions.
