Cardio toning workouts like this one are fabulous for burning calories, boosting your metabolism and toning your muscles. Low impact cardio means we’re not jumping, but there’s plenty of INTENSITY to get your heart rate up. The light dumbbells work to strengthen and tone your muscles and the non-stop cardio is terrific for heart health and endurance.
This workout is well-suited for reaching your general fitness, weight loss maintenance or body-shaping goals.
Women of a “certain age” will appreciate that there’s no jumping and no transitions to the ground, but of course this Thorough Thursday workout includes both a warm up and a cool down.
Check out the list of exercises below, then follow along with me in real time with the full length video.
