Joanna Hall: This is your Cardio Can Do workout. Now, I've designed this to improve the fitness of your heart and lungs but because you got to be burning lots of energy, it's also going to streamline your body as you follow the plan. We're working out for 30 minutes a day, I would love it if you stay with us for the whole course. However, if you have shorter time and I can squeeze in 10 minutes or 20 minutes, then you can opt that at the respective markers. But if you do leave us, please remember to cool down. You'll find details of this earlier on in DVD. Good, so take a deep breathe in and breathe out and again really stretch out the muscle tool at the top; you have got one more and again, breathe in, that's good. Now lift your right shoulder right up to your ear and bring it back. Do it again and again right hand side, and then shrug them up, shrug them up and just release them down. Do that again. Swing all around and to back that kick in weight. Here we go. Shift it side to side, bend those knees a little bit, we're just going to warm up trying to increase your body temperature; just loosening up that body for the work that we're going to do. That's nice. Well done, and march, you may march it out. That's lovely. Make sure that the spine is nice and tall here and you're really putting in those muscles tight around tummy muscles. That's great and your shoulder down. Good job. Keep marching and roll the shoulder again. So, roll it around and down and the other side, and then shrung them really up this and take your hands out. Do it again. Here we go. Round that's lovely, just losing up those shoulders, lift them up and shake those hands down. Two more for me around that's great, other side and lift and shake your hands down. How are you doing girls, so you're right, good, lovely. Now, shift your weight again, here we go. So, a little bend that's great, pull those tummy muscle nice and tight. Can you give me a march, just march up these out, make sure those heels are coming down foot low that's lovely. Shift your weight again, here we go. Join us. Well done, good. Now, remember that march, let's do it now. Here we go, march, good. Spine stays nice and tall. We're going to go for walk this way, let's go now. Here we go. Walk and back, lets try to walk right with the whole of your foot and if you don't have enough room in your home, you can actually march on the spot using those knees little bit higher up to the chest. Space may give me a step to side, just here, that's good. So, you're just stepping to the side, make sure your heel comes down to floor. Change side, you got four little steps here that's good. You got two more and then we're going to walk this way. Are you ready? Let's go. Here we go. Walk that's good; make sure that your spine stays nice and tall. Good job.
