40-minute cardio combo program

911 Emergency:
WHEN YOU SIMPLY NEED TO GET A WORKOUT IN…AND THERE IS NO GYM TO BE FOUND…The “Emergency” Workout:

Is this a miracle workout?  No.  Does this workout need to be over analyzed to see if it is properly working all the muscle groups?  No.  It is simply a workout you can do at home to stay consistent, because consistency is what makes progress happen.

40-minute cardio combo program
Perform this cardio combos in order.  Start with a 5 minutre warm-up.

Combo #1
3 minutes run in place high knees
1 minute lateral raise
1 minute alternating lunge
1 minute incline push up

Combo #2
3 minutes jumping jacks
1 minute overhead triceps extension
1 minute step ups
1 minute incline push up

Combo #3
3 minutes jump rope ( if you don’t have a jump rope just pretend)
1 minute bent over dumbbell row
1 minute squat
1 minute overhead shoulder press

Combo #4
3 minutes side to side hop
1 minute front raise
1 minute bench dip
1 minute calf raise

6 minutes abdominal crunch

5 minute cool down and stretch

NOTE* I found this in “Weight Training for Women”

For your warm up and cool down, do whatever type of cardio you can, just get that body moving!!

      It’s not a be all end all solution, but it’s something to keep you active. Just remember to give it 110% –since you don’t have someone there barking orders at ya 😉
