Cardio and resistance training workout
Startlivingright.net – If you ever find gym memberships expensive, you can follow cardio and resistance training workouts to control your fat loss.

Many people might find gym memberships extremely expensive or might simply not have access to a gym. Although I highly recommend joining an affordable gym (if your budget allows it), here are a few cardio workouts and a complete strength training routine which you can do from the comfort of your living room.

Each workout has been linked to a youtube video to show you how to do the movement.

You’ll find cardio workouts and one strength training full body workout. If you are able, separate your cardio workout and the strength training routine into different sessions (cardio in the morning and strength training in the evening) for a serious body transformation. Follow through for at least eight to twelve weeks to see the final results.

Cardio workouts

You’ll find a total of three different cardio workouts. Start off doing the workouts 3 x a week and gradually increase it up to six times a week according to your fitness levels. ­­Each workout will last for a total of 20 – 30 minutes. Many of these exercises are moves from the Insanity workout DVD.

Beginners: rest for 45 seconds between each exercise. Repeat through 3 times.

Intermediates: rest for 20 – 30 seconds between each exercise. Repeat through 4 times.

Advanced: rest for 15 seconds between each exercise. Repeat through 5 times.

Make sure you move at your own pace. If you are still tired after one exercise, simply increase your rest time.
