Get Fit in 1 Minute with Cardio Lightning Rounds (Video!)

In This Article

Short on time? Here’s a quick way to get a burst of cardio into your day!

After a short dynamic warm-up, do one round of the workout to get your heart rate pumping and your body loosened up. Then with each subsequent round, you can increase your intensity for a killer workout.

Each round is only 1-minute long and you can do as many rounds as you want! Simply set an interval timer for 10 seconds of cardio work and 5 seconds of squats, and get going!

THE WORKOUT (ONE ROUND)

  • 10 seconds: Jumping jacks (Advanced option: Star jumps)
  • 5 seconds: 1 to 3 Squats
  • 10 seconds: Scissors (Advanced option: Split lunges)
  • 5 seconds: 1 to 3 Squats
  • 10 seconds: Jog (Advanced option: Sprint)
  • 5 seconds: 1 to 3 Squats
  • 10 seconds: Speed Skaters
  • 5 seconds: 1 to 3 Squats

Recover for at least 30 seconds, and then repeat the round, increasing your intensity if possible. Challenge yourself to complete 5 rounds!
