I’m excited to be featured in the May/June 2015 issue of Muscle and Fitness Hers magazine! They asked me to design a workout that would get their readers summer ready! So, I came up with a plan that incorporates a 50/50 split of cardio and strength exercises that are done back to back so that the workout is efficient and is over before you know it! Don’t have a treadmill? No worries! I actually did this workout last week at my bootcamp and did other cardio in place of the treadmill intervals. For instance, when it says sprint for 1 minute at 15% incline…that is going to be hard (like a 9 out of 10 RPE scale)….so I had them do fast burpees or high knees. For other intervals that are medium pace – I had them do things like jumping jacks or mountain climbers.
For the workout, you will perform a strength exercise then the cardio (treadmill) portion back to back. Then, you will do the “active recovery” move before you move onto the next set. Here is the workout (click on the images to enlarge):
