3 times the fat loss of aerobics! Research shows that's what happens when you combine aerobics and weight training.
Cardio burn is a calorie-burning aerobic workout that firms and tones the entire body. Combining a medicine ball, light weights, plyometric jumps and squats, and exercises on both a short and tall step make your body the hardest it's ever been. Easy to follow choreography makes this workout fun for exercisers of all levels. Adding an optional barbell increases the difficulty and results.
This 48 minute workout features warm up/stretch (3 minutes), 4-limb cardio, short box and low impact aerobics (17 minutes), weights and tall box toning (22 minutes) abdominals/stretch (6 minutes). Wide calf pumps and lunges reshape the legs, abdominal exercises work your torso and waist; while upper body routines tone the arms and back.
Equipment Needed: Hand Weights, Medicine Ball, Step, Barbell
