Getting to the gym on cold winter days can be a daunting task. But Remy Maguire, personal trainer for four years and competitive cyclist and triathlete, shares this effective and quick strength and cardio workout to help you keep your fitness commitment in 2013. Do her workout three times this week on alternating days and if you liked her workout you will LOVE the “no excuses workout” I posted last week!
Choose three of your favorite cardio machines; I love the indoor rower, treadmill and good old-fashioned jump rope. After warming up with some jumping jacks, high-knees, or jogging in place to get warmed up: Row/run/bike for four minutes (make a note of how far you go miles/meters/etc.), then switch machines, give it your best effort for another four minutes (note how far you go), finish with two minutes of jumping rope. Repeat this 10-minute circuit two or three more times. Each time try to match or best your last distance!
Follow your cardio circuit with these total-body core-strengthening exercises to get more bang for your time!
