Workout Week: Keep It Simple Cardio

Hey! So it's Wednesday of Workout Week. If you missed Monday and Tuesday, no need to worry. We tackled a 30-Minute Hill and Flat Treadmill Workout and a Total Body Toner. And today, I've got a 15-Minute Keep It Simple Cardio workout for you. I like short cardio workouts like this for days when I'm not really focusing on cardio, but still want to feel my heart pumping a little bit. You could, for example, use this as a warm-up. Or a halfway point cardio blast.

However you choose to use it, please make sure the pace at which you jump and run is one that's suitable to your fitness. And if you absolutely hate to jump rope, try jumping jacks or just flip the rope next to you as you jump.


Speaking of cardio and hearts pumping, did you know that it's American Heart Month? Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, so all month long, the American Heart Association will be doing what it can to generate awareness. I'll do my part by, once more, reminding you how important it is to lead a healthy and active life. Control your weight, quit smoking, watch your've heard it all before, right? What better time is there to put it all into practice for real and for good?

Question: How do you keep your heart healthy?
