55 MIN Trampoline | Rebounder Workout | Intervals of Strength & Cardio | Full Body

Wow! This workout kicked my a$$! This is an incredible and intense total body workout. 55 Min Trampoline | Rebounder Workout | Intervals of Strength & Cardio | Full Body is a cardio + strength workout from Michelle Briehler using a rebounder and dumbbells. Yesterday I did a total body strength workout so I didn’t challenge myself to lift heavier weights in this workout. But the weights I did use were enough to really spike my heart rate. I got a serious metabolic workout. According to my FitBit I burned nearly 500 calories and spent a total of 15 minutes in my peak heart rate zone. It was so intense! I needed every rest/recovery break Michelle gave me.

This workout is made up of 5 different circuits: 2 cardio circuits, one cardio + strength interval circuit, one core circuit and one lower body circuit. The exercises in the interval circuit are done for 45 seconds followed by 13 seconds of recovery. Unlike all of the other interval based workouts I do anymore there are no visual timers but you do get beeps to signal the end and beginning of an interval. I did miss the visuals! But I obviously still got an excellent workout.
