We’re all about saving time in the gym. To help make your at-home and gym workouts more effective and easier to plan, we curated a list of our favorite high-intensity, strength-building cardio exercises. Yup, you read that right. You’ll be getting your heart rate up while strengthening your muscles. Now, before you go any further, we need to advise you not to do all 13 exercises in one workout. If you do, prepare to be extremely sore tomorrow.
Instead, choose five to 10 exercises that are either body-part specific or a variety of moves that work your entire body. Consider doing each move for a designated amount of time (30-45 seconds is a good starting point) or for reps (10-20 is a good place to begin). As always, don’t forget to warm up and cool down to prevent injuring yourself.
