Hi Everyone!

It’s Day 10 of my 6-Week Workout Challenge.

Today is a Cardio Day. Get ready to sweat, because it’s an interval Cardio Day. That means we are going to be working at a high intensity.

For the Runners. Check out: Track or Treadmill Workout for Faster Running Paces. This is basically the workout I am doing today, but with recovery (easy pace) laps on the track between each hard interval. This can also be adapted for running, by completing one hard speed walking lap on a track, alternated with a comfortable walking pace.

The HIIT video option is posted below.

There are many ways to do an interval workout. The basic concept is the same one we use in most of my workout videos: high intensity work, paired with easy or resting periods in between. I talk about some options for your cardio in the video. You can jump rope, run, walk, swim, cycle: whatever feels best to you. Make this program your own, so it’s something you enjoy, that you know you are doing to improve your health.

As I mentioned in the video, I am also aiming to get in around 15,000 steps today (including the run!)

Have fun with today’s workout and let me know how you feel!
