Hi I am Tom Holland Bowflex Fitness Adviser. This is the four minute cardio workout for your heart. Four minute routine. We’re going to do twenty seconds of higher intensity, 10 seconds of recovery. Will do that two times through. Four exercises. We’re gonna start with fake jump rope. Ready and begin. So twenty seconds. We’re gonna varry the intensity. Four minutes of cardiovascular exercise, just kind of taking it up and bringing it down. Twenty seconds a little higher intensity, ten seconds down. So about ten more seconds. The recovery is going to be just jogging in place, nice and easy. Alright 3… 2… and excellent. Jogging in place. Nice and easy. Nice and easy. Now we’re gonna go to cross jacks. A little bit more difficult, taking it up a notch each time and let’s go. Cross jacks. 20 seconds. Doesn’t have to be perfect. Do what you can do. Taking your traditional jumping jack and making it a little more fun. Alright. You’ve got about ten more seconds then we’re going to run in place again.

Recover for ten then were gonna go to skaters. Great job, Elsa. Lisa, perfect. And recover. Nice and easy. Jog in place. Alright. Awesome. From here, going to skaters, and begin. Side to side. Now we add a little lateral movement in. Toning the legs a little bit. Burning calories. Burning fat. Four minutes nonstop. Just again playing around with that intensely. Making it fun. Twenty seconds of work at a higher intensity, ten seconds down. Four minutes total. And recover. Nice and easy. Great job. And we finish up with the most difficult – a burpee. You can do it. In 3… 2… and let’s go. Twenty seconds of burpees down, up, and you got it. Alright. This is exercise number four. We’re gonna do it all one more time through.
