The Triangular Cardio Workout
Cardiovascular exercise improves the condition of your heart. If you fail to work the heart as a muscle group, it will weaken and cause a variety of negative health effects. Getting the heart pumping at a fast rate with this triangular workout will help maintain the muscle and keep it healthy. This workout combines cardio training with strength training, using your body weight to deliver a full-body workout.
Caution: The following training session should not be performed more than twice a week and requires 24 hours of rest between each session.
Each round has 3 blocks:
(1) Resistance Training (Muscle)
(2) Cardio (Heart)
(3) Core (Abs)
Use these movements for variety, intensity, and added muscle involvement.
Complete each exercise for the set amount of time. [2 cycles for all except core circuits]
1. Resistance Training
Box Push-ups | 1 minute
Alternating Rope Waves | 30 seconds
Decline Plank | 1 minute
Position yourself in a plank position with your hands on the floor and feet elevated on a sturdy box or bench. Maintain a straight line from head to heels, engaging your core muscles to stabilize your body. Hold the plank position for one minute, ensuring your hips do not sag or rise. Focus on breathing steadily and keeping your core tight throughout the exercise. To modify, place your knees on the floor while still engaging your core for maximum benefits.
