This is the type of workout that some people may see and decide to skip because believe it or not, its only a 6 minute workout and some feel that 6 minutes just isn’t enough to change your body. But in those 6 minutes, your heart rate will increase, you will begin breathing heavier, your quads and inner thighs will begin to feel defeated. I bet it may even cross your mind to give up….but don’t because it’s quickie intense workouts like these that blast fat and increase lean muscle tissue.
In other words – short, intense workouts get you lean, increase fat burning and give you results that you may not believe you can even get!!
But you better start believing, because this is real.
Since launching Lushious Lifts a few months ago, I’ve been sticking to my goal of doing every workout that I post and doing these workouts have been such a change for me as I was pretty much a gym rat. Now that I work my butt off with all these bodyweight, interval, kettlebell, etc workouts at home, I’ve been feeling tighter in my stomach, my clothes is starting to feel big and best of all…I’m feeling good about myself!
Who’s to ever say that short workouts don’t work, I mean, unless you try it for a good 30 days straight, you can’t say they don’t work. And then if you did the workouts for 30 days, then you’ll definitely see for yourself some better changes in your body. 🙂 Then you too, will be a believer.
+ Exercise Mat
+ Gymboss Interval Timer
Set your timer for 9 rounds of 30 seconds WORK and 10 seconds REST. During each 30 second interval, circuit through the exercises, alternating legs when applicable. This equals to a 6 minute cardio workout.
ALTERNATING CRAB KICKS
COMPETITION BURPEES WITH JUMP TUCK
The competition burpee jump tucks are one hell of a combo. The jump tucks alone are a harder exercise for myself because just over the past few months I’ve really been adding more plyos into my workouts since I mainly weight train my lower body. Over the years of avoiding plyos I feel like I’ve built up a muscle resistance against many plyo exercises. I’ve really increased my jumps over the past few months – but still, those jump tucks made me bust my ass to get them done!
As a quick tip, I’d say during the pendulums to keep your abs engaged and just keep going with those legs. Swing, swing, swing your little heart out and don’t stop until the timer says when.
You’re going to feel pretty amazing after this quickie cardio.
I know you will cause I felt it – which is why it is well worth sharing. 🙂
