Sticking to a cardio routine is no cakewalk. Unpredictable weather may short-circuit your plans for a run outside. Opt for indoors, and too much machine time can turn your routine into a rut. Our cardio plan busts boredom by mixing up the moves and working your body from head to toe while still elevating your heart rate. Better still, it can be done indoors or out, late or early—no equipment necessary.
- Do each exercise for 1 minute; switch to the next move without resting.
- Make a 20-minute workout by repeating the sequence 4 times.
- Make a 30-minute workout by repeating the sequence 6 times.
- Perform the routine 3 times a week in the beginning, resting 1 day between. When ready, try doing the workout 4 to 5 times a week.
