Cardio/HIIT, Exercise TutorialsWhitney Carlson1 Comment

Looking to take your strength training to the next level? We are always trying innovative ways to sneak cardio in while we are weight training and today we are going to share a few of our favorite (and simple) ways to add cardio bursts during strength training.

The video below will explain it all, but try to keep these cardio bursts to 30 seconds to 1 minute after you perform your set (or sets) of an exercise. Be sure to begin lifting again only after you feel like you are rested and can begin to lift at the same capacity as when you started. 

This video includes:

  • Ski Jumps
  • Skaters
  • Jump Rope
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Plie Squat Jumps
  • Regular Squat Jumps

Do you have a favorite way to infuse cardio bursts into your strength training workout? Is it not listed? Tell us what it is and we might make a video of the suggestions to share with other readers!
