This total body strength and cardio workout was so much harder than I thought it was going to be. It also took me a long longer than I expected to complete: almost 30 minutes! I had actually set out to do a 750 rep workout but after I got started I realized I wouldn’t have time to finish it, so I pared it down a bit an ended up with the 525 reps and trust me, that was plenty!
The Total Body Strength and Cardio Workout
As tough as it was, I actually really liked this workout. I was slowest on the push-ups, I completed them all as full-pushups but I had to rest quite a bit. The lunges and squats were the fastest, I only needed a few seconds of rest here and there. By the time I got to the burpees I was moving pretty slow but I kept moving to finish strong!
This full-body cardiovascular and strength workout basically does it all! You’ll work every inch of your body plus work your heart to improve aerobic fitness. Because you’ll quickly be working through these compound, functional movements to complete the workout for time, this strength training workout turns into quite the cardio blast. You’ll finish it sweating, muscles burnin and heart pumping but feeling strong and accomplished! This CrossFit-Style “for time” workout will challenge your legs, arms, shoulders, explosive power, abs and cardiovascular endurance.
How to Perform This Workout
The goal of this workout is simple: finish it as fast as possible. Work through all the reps of each exercise before moving onto the next, taking rest as needed but keeping it to a minimum. Complete the entire workout for your best time.
