Before You Begin
Following a 1-minute warmup, this workout is is made up of 3 sets of upper body, core & cardio moves performed in a tabata style. The purpose of the workout is to strength train in intervals of work & rest with interspersed body weight cardio for variety. The cardio can be done high or low impact. I used 10 lb dumbbells for the strength work.
