AngieFitnessTV: Cardio Rebounder + Lower Body Sculpt

Cardio Rebounder + Lower Body Sculpt is a cardio and lower body strength workout from AngieFitnessTV. The workout starts with cardio on the rebounder then you add your booty band/resistance loop to get some lower body work while continuing to cardio bounce on the rebounder. Next you add your pilates ball to the mix (you’re still wearing your booty band) to do some lower body strength work. Angie mixes some core work into the lower body strength work. Each exercise is done for one minute. I always enjoy Angie’s rebounder workouts and this one is no different but it’s probably not one my favorites. Still an enjoyable and effective workout, and one I will even return to, but she has others I like more. I followed it with her 15 Minutes to Fit Stretch & Release to round out my hour.

While I was doing the workout I didn’t feel like it was working my legs that hard but about an hour later, my hips were feeling worked, and now about 5-6 hours later, I am feeling it in my glutes, so maybe it worked me harder than I thought! Several times during the workout Angie referred to this as an “intense workout.” I didn’t find it terribly intense. And that’s okay btw–but I have done many very intense rebounder workouts and few of them were created by Angie (maybe none of them but I have done a lot of Angie’s rebounder workouts and maybe one or two were intense, but when I think of intense rebounder workouts my mind goes to other trainers). And that’s okay because she still creates excellent and fun rebounder workouts but just know that if you are looking for intensity in a rebounder workout, there are far more intense workouts done by other trainers. Off the top of my head Linda @ Barlates creates some super intense rebounder workouts. One way to increase the intensity of this workout is, after the booty band is added to the cardio, continue adding arm movements. Angie stops using her arms once the booty band is added, but I continued to add arm movements to keep my heart rate elevated.

For this workout Angie is using a fabric booty band/resistance loop and I think, for this workout, the fabric loop is necessary. I also own fabric loops which I adore. Mine are EnriQ booty bands but a lot of companies make fabric booty bands and they all look similar. Most come in sets of 3–light, medium and heavy resistance. I used my medium resistance loop for this workout. You will also need a pilates or playground ball and weighted gloves. If you don’t have gloves, Angie recommends using very light hand weights. The gloves/weights are to increase the intensity of the cardio.
