At Home STRENGTH + CARDIO Workout // Total Body

At Home Strength + Cardio Workout // Total Body is an intense little cardio + strength finisher workout from Heather Robertson. There is no warm up so you jump right into some intensity. Since I used this as a finisher after another intense workout, my muscles were burning from the beginning. This is a super set workout. Heather pairs 2 exercises together–one strength and one cardio exercise. You will repeat each superset 3 times before moving on to the next superset. And Heather does manage to work your entire body in just 17 minutes. Another excellent finisher! Each exercise is done for 30 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen counting down your intervals and recoveries. During the recoveries Heather previews the next exercise.

At Home Strength + Cardio Workout // Total Body is 17:43 minutes; 55 second intro; no warm up or stretch. Equipment: dumbbells and fitness mat. Heather is using 10 pound dumbbells. The weights listed below are what I used.
