What’s My Beef With Cardio?

even if I had this viewThere were cardio machines lining the wall with a beautiful view of the city… Every single machine was filled with people galavanting along while checking out the view.

Now picture this…

Someone taking in the same view but burning double, if not triple the calories and fat in half the time. 

Yea, that was me…

Working hard to get my workout finished so I could go out and enjoy what these people were looking at. 

As tempting as it was to jump on a treadmill and just look at the view… I resisted. Instead I took in the view while doing something far better…

To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I set foot on a piece of cardio equipment. I don’t warm-up on them, I don’t cool down, and I most definitely don’t “do my cardio” on them.

My reasoning is pretty simple: 

It is incredibly boring, requires no focus, takes too much time, and it doesn’t bring the kind of results I am after.

Now don’t get me wrong, if you do the RIGHT workouts on these machines, they will bring you some results.

However I still think there is a better way… 

While taking in this great view, here is the “cardio” workout I did:

The New Kind of “Cardio” Workout

Complete all reps on one leg first, then switch legs and repeat:

Left Leg:

  • 5 Single Leg Burpees
  • 5 Single Leg Deadlifts
  • 5 Reverse Lunges

Repeat the same on the right leg. Complete 3 full rounds resting only when needed.

Once finished, rest 30 seconds and complete the circuit below:

  • 20 burpees
  • 30 seconds of double unders
  • 15 pushups
  • 30 seconds of double unders
  • 10 squat to squat jumps
  • 30 seconds of double unders
  • 5 cross body mountain climbers (each side)

Rest as long as needed and repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 sets.

Once finished with that circuit, complete the finisher below:

  • 20 seconds of prisoner squats
  • 10 seconds squat hold (complete 4 rounds for a total of two minutes then move into pushups)
  • 30 seconds of pushups
  • 30 seconds of ice skaters
  • 60 seconds of burpees (trying to complete as many as possible)

After that I was spent. My heart was pounding, my muscles were pumping, and my lunges were ready to explode. What’s even better is that I was in and out of the gym in under 25-minutes.

That’s all you really need to get in a great fat burning workout and get the results you are looking for. I can guarantee that if you did the workout above as your cardio instead of the traditional jog on the treadmill or elliptical, your results would double or triple near instantly.

As I like to say:

Long slow workout produce long, slow results.

Short fast workout produce short, fast results.

Keep on burning,
