This week I’m going to ditch the weights and give you a cardio workout. This workout is very similar to one that my own trainer put me through whenever I was in high school/college. He called in the Gaunlet, but I’ll let you call it whatever the hell you want to. Here’s the deal: You pick four pieces of cardio equipment (for me, it’s the treadmill, bike, stair climber, and rowing machine) and complete a specific amount of time for each exercise on each round.
Treadmill – 8 Min, Bike – 4 Min, Stair Climber – 4 Min, Row – 8 Min
Treadmill – 4 Min, Bike – 2 Min, Stair Climber – 2 Min, Rower – 4 Min
Treadmill 2 Min, Bike 1 Min, Stair Climber – 1 Min, Rower – 2 Min
The goal is to run, bike, climb, and row faster with each progressive round. The time will be shorter, but you will also be a little more tired each time. But push through that, and work just as hard during the last round as you have for the first two.
