Cardio Workout Mashup

print this workout

The cardio workout is an opportunity to try new exercises or mix up an old routine. Cardio is critical to burning body fat and excess calories, and for helping your heart stay healthy. This cardio workout is divided up into four aerobic exercises. Each exercise will be performed for ten minutes at a moderate to vigorous intensity (moderate: think brisk, vigorous: think challenging). Mixing up the intensity of your cardio workout is one of the best ways to maximize results and improve fitness.
