Most of the time, when you think of cardio exercises that you can do in your living room, you’ll picture jumping jacks or jumping rope or star jumps – with a lot of emphasis on the jumping. But you can actually get your heartrate skyrocketing without your feet ever leaving the ground.
Sounds pretty easy, right? Oh, dear, no.
Low impact cardio workouts are some of the sweatiest ones I record! This one, in particular, was a total sweat-fest and only about 30 minutes long.
This workout is designed to start off easy – like a warm-up – and get progressively more difficult. Please refer to the video below to follow along with the timing and for a visual of the exercises, or feel free to leave a comment.
