At-home cardio workout
By Kayla Hartson
Student Fitness Program Coordinator
Get your heart rate up with this challenging cardio workout! This workout is perfect to fit in right when you wake up, during your work break or before you go to bed.
Don’t forget to include a quick warmup to safely increase your heart rate and warm up your muscles. After you complete the workout, take a couple of minutes to cool down and do some static stretches. Click here to read a previous article about how to stretch during a warmup and cooldown.
The more rounds you complete, the more intense your workout will be! Also, you can add dumbbells to make the exercises more challenging.
Don’t have dumbbells? Use water bottles, laundry detergent, soup cans or a heavy backpack. Be creative at home and add resistance to your workout!
