    Details

    Today's routine is quite the trifecta: bored-easily, low-impact cardio, and core strength—three of my favorite qualities in a workout. Between the five rounds of cardio and core, we will target your whole body without repeating exercises!



    **Workout Highlights**

    • 39 minutes, 3/5 difficulty
    • 45 seconds on // 15 seconds off
    • The first, third, and fifth rounds are low-impact cardio
    • The second and fourth rounds are core strength
    • Warm-up, cool-down, and two water breaks included
    • Modifications for higher or lower impact options included

    I like low-impact exercises because they can easily be modified to a higher-impact exercise, but if I want to keep the impact low, I can still get a great workout! To me, a great workout means I have sweat dripping from my face and I'm out of breath. This routine certainly delivered, and I am excited to share it with you.

    Our warm-up and cool-down are each five minutes long, and the body of the workout is 25 minutes. There are quick water breaks after the first and second rounds of cardio. If you need a more extended rest, feel free to hit the pause button. Each round consists of five different exercises that you will perform for 45 seconds with 15 seconds rest. Each unique exercise will keep your body guessing and your brain entertained.
