Throwdown Tuesday: 20 minute SUPER MOVE jam

One of the best and most effective ways to shred fat, condition the heart, and skyrocket metabolism is through a technique called high-intensity training.  High-intensity utilizes both the anaerobic and aerobic systems to put your workout into overdrive.  These workouts are shorter and much more INTENSE.  You can get in and get out with BIG results.  Ideally, high intensity workouts should only be performed 1 – 3 times per week.  More than 3 bouts can leave too much stress on the body and result in over training fatigue or injury.

 

This workout focuses on 2 SUPER MOVES that combines cardio with body weight training placed in between high intensity cardio sets. This helps to keep your heart rate high while toning the legs, arms, and core. The routine is structured in one 4 minute round to be repeated 4 times. Between each 4 minute round is a 1 minute toning section. Each move is 50 seconds with 10 seconds of rest. Start with a 2 – 3 minute warm up and end with easy stretching.
