3 Cardio Blasts Circuits

Life gets busy and sometimes it can be hard to squeeze in a workout between work meetings, daily commutes and time at home with the family. Cardio blasts lend themselves well to a busy schedule—as they can be short and done almost anywhere—and their high intensity helps you get the most out of your workout. Pick any of the following three 10-minute cardio blasts circuits. Any one of them is sure to help you sculpt muscle and burn fat, no matter where you work out.

Do each of circuit four times with 1-minute rests in between for maximum benefit. Your ultimate goal is to build your strength and endurance to a point where you can combine all nine exercises as one circuit and do it 4 times. Good luck.

Circuit A

Circuit A-1: Lunge Windmill

ReverseLungeKneeUp

Step back into a lunge with your elbows up and then step up with the back leg, crossing it over to tap opposite elbow. Repeat on the same leg for 15 reps before switching legs. This works the legs, butt and core.

Circuit A-2: Speed Skaters

speed-skaters

Keeping balance on one leg, tap the ground with the opposite hand. Take big jumps side to side, holding balance on one leg at a time while tapping the ground on every jump. Do this for 30 seconds. This exercise works the legs and butt.

Circuit A-3: Sumo Squat Jumps

Jump-Squat

Keep your toes pointed slightly out and feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart. Tap the ground with one arm, then hop your feet in while standing up straight. Hop your feet out again, tapping the ground with your other arm. Keep your butt back behind you, the knees over your toes and back flat. Do this for 30 seconds. This exercise works the inner thighs and butt.
