Crazy Cardio + Evil Twist! Home Workout Madness

Hi all,

The idea for “Crazy Cardio” has come from Mickela who has often mentioned her manic cardio days. Out of shear respect for this concept and her dedication to it (even if I hate cardio :/ ), I thought I would give you all a good’n before the weekend begins!

Also, I feel I can now tell you what the problem has been. Andrew (my Fiance) and I have decided to part company.  This is a very difficult time and up until now I haven’t felt able to share it on here. However, I am now gradually (slowly) accepting that our relationship was maybe not meant to be and it is better to find out now than in 6 months time when we were due to get married.  As I figure out my new circumstances my blogging will be less often. As Andrew has already moved out I now need to move house again – so I will be busy! Life sucks sometimes, but I am lucky that I have many other people AND focuses in my life that make me happy and fulfilled.  I don’t want a pity-party, but I think as you have all been SO amazing to me over the last year or so, that I owe you an update.

Do not fret though – myomytv will NOT be going anywhere! 😀

Anyway…

I know I promised a full workout breakdown, but I just haven’t had a chance! Even this post is a mad rush, as I need to get ready for my weekend break, so I got up extra early to get this workout done 🙂

There are 3 rounds of 5 exercises in the first section and before each round you will need to change the interval times. Use this time for a little extra recovery (you’ll need it). All will be explained below. The beauty of this type of Crazy Cardio is it keeps your body guessing and gradually increases the intensity, until you’re left in a puddle on the floor!

As if this is not enough, I have added an additional (and particularly evil) twist. A non-stop combo of 2 exercises back to back, aiming for maximum reps and maximum hatred of me throughout !! But of course when I smile sweetly at the end, you will all forgive me 😉 – If you don’t, then I will just have to stay in my Grim Reaper character for a few more days and give ya all hell next week haha!!

Can you tell I’m looking forward to letting my hair down, I didn’t think it was that obvious 😛

For round 1, set your Gymboss Interval Timer for 1 minute effort and 25 seconds recovery. Round 2 – 45/15 and Round 3 – 30/10:

  1. Burpees (18, 13, 8 )
  2. Two-Handed KB Swing (38, 30, 20)
  3. “Evil” Jumps (17, 13.5, 7)
  4. KB Vertical Swing Burpee (12, 9, 7)
  5. Side to Side Step Ups (59, 43, 30)

Now the cruelty really begins (and not just from having to reset your timers a million times). Complete 5 continuous rounds of this combo and set reps:

  1. Double KB Suitcase/Deadlift “burpee” into KB Push Up x 5 reps
  2. Pull Ups (any kind) or Rows of some sort x 2 – 5 reps for pull ups and 8 – 12 reps for rows

I hope you all have a great weekend, and I will be back on Monday with a new workout!

Cheers

Byeeeeeee
