One of the best components of my Women’s transformation program Live Lean Formula for Women is the QUICK and super-effective 10 minute bodyweight cardio.
This is cardio like you’ve never done before.
The idea is to give-it-all-you-got keeping it short and fun instead of long and dreadful.
In the Formula for Women Cardio Guide I show you the 4 bodyweight cardio moves I recommend. There are Low Intensity and High Intensity versions of each, as I recommend you alternate between the two intensities.
For beginners: I recommend 40 seconds of the Low Intensity version of the move, followed immediately by 20 seconds of the High Intensity version.
Some users may find these moves to be too challenging or too high-impact for them, so today I want to show you how to modify each of these movements to bring them down a notch and make them doable for a person at a true-beginners level, or appropriate for someone working though an injury.
Eva (@EvaDivaFit) is going to be our model for today since I do not recommend this kind of cardio for someone who is pregnant as I am right now. 🙂
Here’s what the Cardio Guide looks like:
(watch video above to see the modification differences in action)
At the end of the video Eva goes through the entire workout using the modifications for each move to give you an idea of what your workout would look like if you were to modify everything.
Even with these modifications, this workout is still going to feel like a challenge, get your heart rate up and have you burning fat way more than a boring 10 minutes on the elliptical or treadmill.
Give these modifications a try, and remember that working out is all about starting where you are and improving in little bits over time. Progress over perfection, always!
