Workout of the month: Lower Body Blast

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.

Rest should be minimal when transitioning from cardio to strength because the objective of the exercise is to keep an elevated heart rate for the entire duration of the workout. This quick workout should take roughly 30 minutes, but don’t skip the 5 minute cool-down at then end.
