Pre-Christmas Workout: Cardio

Let me just preface this by saying that you’ll love this but you’ll hate it. It’s definitely quick but it’s certainly not easy. If you’re not huffing and puffing by the end of it, then you did something wrong.


  • 1 min. jump rope
  • 1 min. mountain climbers (you can place your hands on a bench for an incline or on the floor). The floor is harder.
  • 1 min. burpees (include the push-up).

Repeat 5x.

If you’re not tired after that, do a 5-min interval workout on the treadmill. :30 sec on (running)/ :30 off (hopping onto the non-moving part of the treadmill for your rest period). Speed at 10 mph. No incline on the treadmill.

End with 5-min abs.

Ideally, the total workout should take between 20-25 minutes to complete if there’s no stopping between exercises.
