Cardio routine Chris Freytag: Let's begin our cardio workout with the march. Cardio is the key component in reducing body fat and blasting cellulite. So we won't take this lightly today, we are here to motivate you and get you in your fat burning zone. Now each six minute interval, we'll progress in intensity and in impact and I want you to challenge yourself today. But here's the beauty of this, Heather will be doing the low impact options throughout the entire workout. So keep your eye on Heather when you need a break and step tap to the right, one arm swing like this, right here. (Interval 1) Alright we're beginning level 1, just swing that arm, fast side step to the right, like this, give me four, three, keep them nice and tight, bring them back, four, three, we'll try it to the left, right here. Step tap to the left, good. Now level 1 is about two and a half minutes of low impact movements. Here we go, fast side step for four, nice, bring it back, good. Again to the right, try it out. Now low impact means that you keep one foot in contact with the ground. Fast side steps, you're ready? Here we go. That doesn't mean low intensity, keep that energy level up, make those motions really work for your body, to the left, let's go. Up, yeah, good, two more, breathe, fast side step. Excellent! Breathe through your mouth, get the oxygen in. Ready? Moving on, power squats to the right and left. So you're going to squat right then squat left, take it low, sit in that imaginary chair. These are tough I know, keep going, four more and three, big motion. Alright, here we go to the right step tap, we'll put it together. Step tap for two this time, now fast side step, let's go, pull, yes, bring it back, good, to the left, up, yes, fast side step, go, go, bring it back, nice. Moving onto power squats, take it to the right like this, squat right now left. Good! Now these are tough, they get the heart rate up. You want to sit back in that imaginary chair, keep your knees just above your toes. Good! You got it, last one, here we go, step tap. Let's put it together, just two times. Now fast side step, give me two, bring it back, to the left, to right here. Breathe; I feel my heart rate going up, fast side step. You got it, power squat, let's go, eight of them, open up, come on. Breathe with each one; you need that oxygen down to those legs. Four more, come on, four, big, three, bend those knees, you got in one more move, tap it up, step right, tap left, pull across with your arm, right there. Now push back, keep tapping, here we go, forward, pull, pull, good, tap it back, you got it. We'll do it two more times, go, up, open up, big. The larger the range of motion, more calories burnt. Let's do it again, take some more effort, come on, good. Alright, you're ready? March it after me, right here, march it.
