Three Ways To Get A Great Cardio Workout Without The Treadmill

With the summer in full effect starting next week, everyone is trying to lose fat. What one place does everyone turn to for rapid fat loss? Well the treadmill of course. In reality, you don’t need to use the treadmill to get a great cardio workout. Here’s three other options that you have to try.

1. Strength training cardio

Sounds weird right? Everyone knows about strength training and about cardio but most people never realize about the hybrid form of strength training cardio. No, it’s not some form of jumping rope while you squat or anything crazy like that. It’s simply a combination of strength training work doing in an interval training fashion for a short burst of time.

A popular example is weighted vest stair running. I recently released the Resurrection Interval Training workout, which is based around strength training cardio. It’s so intense that you don’t have to spend even 30 minutes doing it.

2. Kettlebell work

I LOVE kettlebells for extra cardio so much that I keep a pair in my basement. While I’m not a intense kettlebell person like others that you’d find online, I do know the value for performing them as cardio. I prefer them over the treadmill because there easier on your joints and provide you with a great cardio workout.

Follow this kettlebell cardio workout

1) Single Arm Kettlebell Swings 3 sets of 30 seconds each arm

2) Double Arm Kettlebel Swings 3 sets of 15 reps

3)Kettlebell Push-ups 3 sets of 12 reps

4) Kettlebell Figure 8’s 3 sets of 10 reps

Just try that kettlebell workout, you’ll love it!

3. Bodyweight workouts

I LOVE bodyweight workouts in the summer time. In the winter you’re stuck in your basement but with the weather being warm, it’s perfect to get outside and hit it hard.

What makes bodyweight workouts so effective is that you don’t have an external weight that will help to stabilize you, it’s up to your own body. Plus, you have to challenge your body with different angles since you don’t have extra weight. This works both your aerobic and anaerobic system, which makes bodyweight workout so much more effective.

    I totally agree with this style of working out to get ripped and muscular. I was doing heaps of treadmill cardio, bicycle, stair master ..it helped loose some weight but also muscle size further I plateaued for a long time so I cardio for longer, waste of my time ….. as soon as I changed to more strength training cardio+body weights, seriously I dropped bodyfat but gained muscularity rather than loose it. Your system is definitely on the right track.

    I have said this before; Jimmy is not blowing smoke, this resurrection work out is truely awesome. In fact if you have enough entergy to to a real cardio work out after and i am not talking about walking on treadmill at a snails pace that aint cardio, then you have not dont resurrection program correctly. For all you heavy trainers you can actually incorperate it into your heavy workouts, i have done it and its great. In fact i dont even go to the “cardio” side of gym.

    I have been doing kettlebells with a trainer for 9 months now and have noticed a HUGE improvement – both strength and body change (fat lose and muscle gain, even after the first month). I would recommend getting a RKC Certified Trainer for any sort of kettelbell workouts (you don’t need any special technique for the pushups) due to the fact that you can injure yourself quite easily.
