Day 2: Moderate Cardio (20 min on your own)
Core Challenge • 1m 22s
Perform 20, 30 or 40 minutes of moderate cardio. Moderate Steady-state cardio like jogging, swimming, dancing, or steady state cardio routines like barre, are just as important as the HIIT training. Use any of our barre cardio or kickboxing cardio workouts listed in the Cardio Library below - OR - take a continuous walk or jog.
Several studies have concluded that this type of training vs. HIIT provided a greater improvement in overall cardiovascular fitness. Both moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT) and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) provide results. You will notice we combine both types in this program:-)
