Cardio Strength Workout

Hey! I’ve got a great workout for you today. Since I started teaching group ex again, I’ve received requests from many of you to post the workouts on the blog. Always happy to share my knowledge! I’ve updated the Peanut Butter Runner workout board on Pinterest and you can also check out my workout page where everything is categorized and easy to navigate.

Today’s workout is from my Sunday cardio strength class at the Y. The way I structured it was in four mini sets of work. Each set was repeated three times through back-to-back with no rest. I gave my students one minute of rest between sets. It took about 40 minutes total.

I can testify that this is a great workout because I did it with my class. I was dripping with sweat at the end and a noodle for the rest of the afternoon. The 1 minute squat to press in the last round kind of destroyed me. So hard!

Please modify this workout as needed and let me know if you have questions or feedback! Happy sweating!

    Sounds like an awesome work-out, thanks Jen. It’s heading into winter here, and I’m struggling for workout motivation as it’s soo cold in the mornings and nights… this is the motivation I need! I’ll give it a crack, and let you know!

    Pinned this immediately! I’m always looking for effective and sweaty workouts that I can do in the hotel gyms while I’m on the road.

    Tried it this morning – definitely a great full-body workout, and loved that it never got boring. The only modification I made was doing supermans for 30 seconds instead of the full minute (it was just too long for me).

    Just had to let you know I tried this out with my TRX class yesterday and we all loved it! I subbed TRX substitutes in each set that worked great. Thanks so much for sharing!
