Spring is officially here! Which means summer is right around the corner and so are barbecues, vacations, and beach days! What better time to start prepping your body than now with three products you can use time and time again. In today’s workout, I’ll show you how to make the most out of 15 minutes through this full-body cardio workout that will get you sweating up some calories using a jump rope and stretch bands!
These 2 products have to be some of the best to workout and travel with for how lightweight and versatile they are to use. The workout I created today is a mix of low impact and high impact workouts divided into 5 different circuits. Each circuit is 1 minute less than the one before, resulting in a 15 minute cardio buzz that will leave you wanting more. Feeling brave? Try this workout 2x and let me know how you did in the comments below!
