This month started our INSANITY challenge. Cardio cardio cardio everywhere. The daily sweat session isn't the same as hot yoga (I miss my yoga L), it’s completely different. Yoga is all about flexibility and mental stability. Cardio just plain kicks your ass.
In honor of my cardio dedicated Fall season (the Mexico countdown has begun), here is a quick 15 minute cardio warm up that will surely get your heart rate up, and work some muscles in the process.
1) Jogging in place (45 seconds)
2) Jumping Jacks (45 seconds)
3) Heisman (45 seconds)
4) 1 2 3 Heisman (45 seconds)
5) Butt kicks (45 seconds)
6) High Knees (45 seconds)
7) Mummy kicks (45 seconds)
Repeat cycle 3 times, each time increasing your pace.
Note: This is the warm up from Sean T’s Insanity Pure Cardio DVD. I LOVE it. There is obvious reason why the video itself isn't on youtube, but here is a video from “SlimDownwithSarah.com” that lays out the whole warm up.
