FULL BODY CARDIO AND STRENGTH WORKOUT!

I seriously loved this circuit!

3 minutes of heart pumping cardio alternating with a killer strength circuit

= crazy metabolic burn!


For the cardio portion you will need a Lebert Fitness HIIT Training System

The HIIT system is a solid strap that glides smoothly between a metal ring near the anchor point. You can use this tool for dynamic strength training (pulling or pushing against your own resistance) or for cardiovascular training and even suspension training as we are going to do in today's workout!


For the strength portion you will need some kettlebells or dumbbells!
