Welcome to today’s workout! This routine is focused on strengthening your core. It incorporates fat burning cardio bursts throughout to maximize the burn, and boost your metabolism.
Choose the best cardio variation for your needs. I did high knees throughout, but I also demonstrate marching in place as a low impact cardio variation. Keep your core engaged throughout your cardio burst to help strengthen your transverse abs.
I filmed this workout in two parts, but it is actually the second half of a longer workout I wrote. You can do this workout on it’s own, or pair it with Part 1 of this workout: Home Exercises for Lean, Strong Legs: Bodyweight
Do you like having the workout video split, so you can customize it to fit your time frame, or do you prefer to have one longer workout video? With a toddler, I find that it’s easiest to have the option of shorter workouts, and then stack or repeat them as needed, but I would love to have your feedback.
I hope you enjoy today’s workout routine! Let me know what you thought, and if you had a favorite move. Have fun!
