Naomi Joy Fitness: HIIT Cardio & Abs

HIIT Cardio & Abs is another tough and advanced rebounder workout from Naomi Joy. She is awesome! I worked so hard in this one, I was feeling a little weak afterwards! Though it worked me hard, the cardio intervals were all doable for me but when we got to the core work–a solid of minute of some of the exercises was killer and I had to drop to a modified version 30-40 seconds into the interval. Thank you Naomi for working me hard–again! Love your rebounder workouts! I hope she keeps creating them. I am planning to create a rebounder rotation and the more rebounder workouts I have to choose from, the better!

Here is the structure of this workout: 19 minutes of HIIT cardio: 45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of recovery. This workout is done voice over with excellent music that really drives the intervals. There is a timer in the upper right hand corner of the screen counting down your intervals and your recovery periods. During the recoveries, Naomi previews the next exercise. For the core work, you do each exercise for 60 seconds and you get a 20 second recovery between exercises. The warm up is relatively short, but you can do like I do and already be bouncing on your rebounder during the one minute intro. Naomi is working just as hard as you are in this workout! It is very motivating!

HIIT Cardio & Abs is 35:19 minutes; 1 minute intro, 1:45 minute warm up, 19 minutes of cardio, 9 minutes core work and 3:30 minute stretch.
