Body Beast Cardio Workout

I did Body Beast Cardio for the first time today, and I would have to say that it was a pretty darn good one! As a loyal Insanity and Insanity Asylum fanatic, I figured that this workout would be a piece of cake! Boy was I in for a surprise =). One of the best things that I enjoyed about this particular workout was the fact that weights were also incorporated. And trust me, you don't need a lot of weight because of the amount of reps that Sagi has you do with the exercises. I love the Body Beast strength workouts, and I have always ignored the cardio workout because I thought that it would be too easy lol. If you haven't tried it for the same reasons, then I highly recommend that you give it a shot, you will be in for a rude-awakening, I'm so glad that I did it! Thanks for a great workout Sagi.

Length: 30 minutes
Equipment needed: Bench (optional), and weights

The WARM UP consisted of high knees, hip circles, reverse lunges, side squats, sumo squats, and some more high knees.

Like I said, this workout really took me by surprise being that I do a lot of Insanity workouts. It's all about changing things up, and that's why all of the Beachbody Fitness Programs work so well, they work every part of your body, and are structured to make sure that you master the movements before going on to the next phase, which is what you want to do to help prevent injuries.

Finished my BEAST workout with my Shakeology, gotta have it!! =)
