Did you think I was kidding when I said we were getting sweaty for the month of SWEATember? Because I wasn’t.
If you need some proof, here’s Exhibit A: today’s workout.
I kind of knew this one was going to be sweaty when I put it on the white board, but sometimes workouts turn out a little different than I anticipate, so I didn’t realize that I was actually going to be drenched at the finish!
But who doesn’t love a good drenching, right?
At 40 minutes long, we’re burning somewhere between 300-400 calories, which is perfect if you’re looking to lose weight or trim fat. The exercises are all low impact, so there’s no jumping, but still very high intensity, so there’s plenty of sweat.
This is one of my favorite types of workouts – a progressive, or ladder style – because it starts off easy and sneaks up on you. Ha! Okay, maybe I don’t love the sneaky part, but I do enjoy starting off easy. 🙂
Check out the workout breakdown and follow along video below.
