Tired of being in the gym? Sick of stale air? Get outside with me and enjoy this allover interval workout.
All you need: plenty of water, 30 minutes, a stop watch, and a determined attitude. Optional additions: mat and iPod.
I always want you to listen to your body and modify by holding support or dropping down to a more basic level if things are too hard.
Start with a light jog. I find a good soft surface and I run on the balls of my feet with upright alignment in my Merrell Barefoot Shoes.
Jog: 5 Minutes (cardio) (start light and as you get warm speed up; set your focus, set your intentions and think: Yes I Can!).
Walking Lunges: 2 Minutes (lower body fat burn and leg sculptor)
Walking Lunges 2 Minutes (lower body fat burn and leg sculptor)
