Hey everyone this is Jenn Aguirre and I am here with a new cardio workout. So the last time you saw me I was on my treadmill in my house. And I did a little combination. I talked about doing side shuffling and all that other stuff. And then I did it with a jump rope. But now i have something new. So I’ve been loving this one. Ive been doing it every chance I get. And every time I do it I try and step it up and do a little bit more. I have to be honest. I’ve been noticing a little bit more striations in my legs. Pretty much the same workout that I’ve been doing with my resistance training since I’ve been doing this. And it makes the time go by, so fast.
So, this is something that you’re really going to have to concentrate for so I am not going to talk. Thats why I have a little bit of music playing in the background, um as I do this. What you want to do is start out at the most comfortable pace that you have. Your point here is to not touch this. Pretty much what I did yesterday, and thats what inspired me to do this for you guys today. Is I did this for forty minutes and those forty minutes, flew by. Because I started at a speed that I know I can maintain on the regular where its kinda easy. And I went up point one or point deux every time I did it. What I mean by that is side shuffling to backward jog to side shuffling to backward jog and then back to here, and then I bump it up one or two. So I’ll demonstrate on one round. Right now I’m going to put it up to 4.5 ok and I’m going to side shuffle.
Now, as you guys can see I’m wearing my shirt. My missfitclothing.com. m.i.s.s.f.i.t.c.l.o.th.i.n.g. Ok um so it says, this body was made with a clean diet, heavy iron and a whole lot of F’in hard work. This is hard work. Ok, so pretty much I’m side shuffling right now. I got my headphones on. Usually if I’m in the gym I’ll have it right here. So I’m going to slowly, I’m going to shut my mouth. And I’m going to slowly transition to here. I don’t know why I said slowly. Without touching. So now you can count. I would normally do, twenty side shuffles and then this is a filler and then side shuffle to the other side. I would do another twenty here. And you pick a spot, keep your abs nice and tight. Go back to here, go back to here and then I go boom boom, and I bump it up. Ok so, this is basically how and why your time will fly by.
Because you will be bumping it up starting at whatever pace you can. now, if you want to do, if this is challenging for you, really challenging, which is hard. And you want to do a couple rounds at the same speed and then bump it up. Thats cool. You want to try and bump it up one point every time to see how fast you can go. So basically I want you guys to see. I’m hoping I can get up to it while I’m talking because it takes a lot of concentration. Yesterday when I was doing this, my max was 6.5 on the treadmill doing this combination. Going back and forth. When I was at 6.2 I almost fell. I’ve never ever been so motivated to get back on and bump it up to six five just because I fell.
And all I could think about was that saying when they say fall down seven times get up eight. So I’m going to bump it up to 5.5 the key is concentration and think about which foot is going to turn.Ok just for sheer purposed of this video not being too long, I’m going to bump it up to six. Just going to do a couple. Ok. going to bump it up to six three. whoo! whoa and forward ok. so. I do not want to fall on camera first take. I know sometimes when people are doing exercises and they’re doing some really hard stuff and then they erase it on the tape so that when you get to watch it, it looks like they’re awesome. may God strike me dead right now, we’ve only done this once. So first take. So that was at six three that was the highest that I did. Yesterday, I did do six five but I was way warmed up. That was about twenty five minutes into my workout. I could have probably done it.
I just wanted to say it was our first take so and plus the video is getting long. So try this again. If you want to make it even harder. Just say you’re on there and you’re banging it out and you’re at 6.5 or whatever. Lets say you’re a speed demon. Try bumping up the incline. So you could always make everything a little bit harder. You can always push yourself. Theres never a limit to anything you can do. Its I mean, you could hold onto weights if you want to. You could put your hands on your head so that you got no arms. Uh, forget it. Like you notice how my arms were like this the whole entire time? You gotta, you have to use your arms.
And you have to think about where your transitions are coming from. Its all core so keep those abs nice and tight. So I hope you guys like this one. I hope this motivated you guys on your next cardio workout. Changing it up on the treadmill because I know the treadmill can get boring. You guys know i use a nook and my i-pod. I like, totally mutli-task. Obviously I’m not reading on this workout. So, enjoy it. Let me know what you think and let me know what you got up to. Let me know how long you did it for. Let me know if you did an incline. Say, in your face Jenn I totally did like a 15 incline and at 6.5. Ok. And then I’ll say I’m proud. I’m not jealous, I’m proud. But you better believe I’m going to try and do it at a 15.0 if you tell me that you do. Alright, Ok Bye!
Please tell me what you think. Leave your comments below.

Hi this is jennaguirre.com and you are watching your at home cardio workout routine. So basically we are in my garage right now. And I do have a treadmill, and I also have my jump rope. So I’m going to teach you guys a little bit about some stuff. So basically, cardio counts as cardio, only if your heart rate is elevated over a certain beats per minute. So, that’s my biggest thing is that I want people to know, the education, I want you guys to learn from me. So cardio is only counted as cardio instead of activity if your heart rate is elevated. I’m a huge fan of heart rate monitors. I make everybody get one that physically comes into my studio, and any of my virtual clients.
I highly recommend everybody gets one. The only heart rate monitor that I have respect for, because that’s the one that I use, is polar. So right now I’m wearing my heart rate monitor. This one reads calories, heart rate, zones, um and then it has a timer on here and you can wear it as a regular watch. Right now its not even on. Now, I don’t encourage, I mean if you don’t get a polar and you just get one thats, oh, I don’t have to wear anything, because if you notice, I’m wearing my heart rate monitor band. So the band, this is what reads it, and this is gonna unbutton so basically this will come off when I’m done. I’ll wash the strap and then I’ll snap it back on.
This is what reads it, this is how it reads it. So everything is in the box, if and when you do get one. But I do really do recommend them because, because the whole point of this is to be able to do this stuff at your house. You don’t have a lot, and even if you don’t have a treadmill, were going to get into a whole bunch of videos on things without treadmills. But its gotta be counted as cardio and you have to have something to gauge it against. So on a scale of 1-10 you’ve gotta push yourself between a 7 and a ten.
No, no low zones, but this is gonna be the best thing. Don’t bother getting one that doesn’t have one of these. And get your heart rate elevated to a certain beats per minute. I’m gonna teach you guys about all those things. You’re gonna notice what I’m at. So basically, your at home cardio workout routine. So I’m going to start out on the treadmill. Now my treadmills a little noisy, its just my at home treadmill. Umm, so basically what were gonna do is, were gonna do intervals. Cardio interval training is awesome. So you want to stay in your, no lower than, lets just throw out a number here, no lower than 140. Ok, no lower than that. And then push yourself as high as you possibly can get it. Intervals. You’re going to go back and forth. 30 minutes, 30 seconds, 45 seconds, one minute, at your high zones, and then however long it takes you to recover. But, your recovery is not gonna drop below 145.
So, for that purpose of the interval style of cardio that I’m going to do. And also for the sheer boredom. I know, how boring cardio can be. And thats why I like to teach all my clients about this interval style for sheer purposes of boredom also. So basically what were gonna do is were gonna do four minute intervals. So were gonna do one minute jog, one minute side shuffle, one minute side shuffle, pop off and do one minute of the jump rope. Pick one of them, one or two of them as being your high, high zone. So push as fast as you can. So I’m not going to go out in a full out sprint here, but I am going to start my treadmill. Now, you want to do your warm up. You want to do a nice good like 3 minute warm up.
Ok so right now, I’m going to increase my speed. I’m increasing it, I’m turning on my heart rate monitor. Ok I’m going to keep it on the heart rate page. Right now I’m running at, you guys aren’t going to watch me through the whole entire thing. I’m running at 6.0. I’m going to make sure I get my heart rate up to that 140. I’m going to jog at a nice even pace. If this doesn’t get my heart rate up fast enough, and my minute doesn’t start until my heart rate gets up to that 140. Soon as I get my heart rate up to 140, then I look at my minute. That’s when my cardio starts. So, lets just say I just did my three minute warm up. Ok so I’m at 132 right now, 135, ok, 140 perfect. So I’m at 6.5 right now. So, I’m not going to have you guys watch this for a minute. Fast forward, 50 seconds, 55, one minute. So now I’m going to dramatically lower my speed. Maybe down to 4.0 might be 3.5 for you.
And I’m gonna turn to the side now my minute starts now. Side shuffle. Now you wanna pick a focal point with this. You can hold on if you need to, but you don’t want to hold on. So here, if you have to lower the speed you can lower the speed. My heart rate is still at 140. If I notice that its not, here’s some different things you can do. You can lower. Just bumped up to 142. Or you can increase the speed, or increase the incline. So I’m picking my focal point so I don’t fall. Ok lets just say that was a minute, I turn around, I do the other side . I’m not going to make you guys watch my one minute turned to the side, staring at my butt the whole time. K, now I stop it. Grab my jump rope, of course its tangled.
You want to make sure that its prepped and ready for you. Now, practice makes perfect. So you’re just going to regularly jump. If you wanna go nuts and start really learning how to engage those shoulders, and do, do double jumps, do cross jumps. I didn’t get like this right the first, the first time I jumped on a jump rope. Ok so now, if I want my heart rate to really get up there, and this minute be considered my high zone I’m going to have to do something dramatic. So lets just say, I start going faster. Not messing up. Fast double jumps. ok 155. Boom drop my tread, drop my jump rope, get back on the treadmill.
Literally it’ll make the time go by faster, it’ll make the workout go by faster, it’ll get your heart rate high and then go down low and you’ll do awesome quality cardio. Building, your heart is a muscle, so the more blood that it pumps in the average person 60-75 beats per minute. The average runner 40-50 beats per minute. And its because your heart is pulling in more blood. This style of training is going to help your heart. So for sheer purposes of helping you burn body fat, getting you stronger. Helping your stamina even for your resistance training. So at home cardio workout routine. Four minutes, go around it for as long as you possibly can. 40-45 minutes. Or until you get to a really good, quality calorie burn. 5-600 calories. I did I said it. 5-600 calories. Alright so I hope you guys liked it. let me know what you think. that’s it, alright look for more videos.

Ok this is jennaguirre.com and we are here with our home cardio exercises. So right now were in my living room. Were about to go outside to my backyard. So, we, I have my jump rope, my two discs, I’m going to teach you guys about these when we get outside. And my dumb bell just for sheer jumping purposes. I’m going to go outside. Ok so, basically you could do this in a garage if the weathers not nice, or you could do this outside if the weathers nice. Now here’s a little side note, a little tip.
Outside, there’s less chemicals inside the physical building. Even though its not in like a building that’s out, in the gym or in a house. There’s less chemicals in the air and it enhances your workout to do stuff outside. So your metabolism is faster, your calorie burn is better your oxygen consumption is better so I highly recommend, every chance you get, try and do everything outside. If the weathers nice, go do your cardio outside. Go for your jogging outside. Um, ok so basically you’re just going to pick a series of exercises, you’re going to watch these exercises. At home, cardio exercises that you can do, anywhere. Obviously in your house, that’s the whole point of this. So I am a huge tremendous fan of my tangled up jump rope.
And, so as I’m chatting I will get it all set. Now, you got these things right here. These are furniture movers that you could buy for like, four bucks. Home depot, big lots, any place. Or, you could use tile like I have in that room that we just came from. Or if you’re going to do it inside and you’ve got wood floors you could do it with socks or paper towels. You cant do it outside on the cement with a paper towel but you can use these. So basically what you’re going to do is, I’m a huge huge fan of interval style cardio. So what you’re going to do is, you’re going to go through intervals.
You’re gonna one and two minute intervals pushing yourself as hard as you possibly can. Of course, I’m about to flash you, my heart rate monitor, got my heart rate monitor on. Make sure my quality cardio is quality. And I am going to go ahead and turn it on. Boom boom boom. Turn it off, turn it back on. And now I’m going to warm myself up on my jump rope. Ok, so, you’re going to go for one and two minute intervals. Literally, do this jump rope every single day if you can.
Awesome cardio, calves, quads, hamstrings, shoulders, incredible shoulders. Everything that you possibly can. Just as good, just as many muscles are activated when you’re doing the jump rope as when you’re doing the treadmill so, or jogging for that matter, so warm yourself up practice everyday, get some criss crossing in. Get some double jumps in. Keep those arms close to the body. see? So here’s a little jump rope lesson. ok. So you’ll go for as fast as you possibly can, for one minute. Ok, you’re going to go right into lateral hopping right over my dumbbell or over anything that’s fairly high. And you’re going to go for one minute. You guys aren’t going to watch the whole entire thing, getting your heart rate up. Good.
My heart rate is above 140 right now. 154 whoo! 156. whoa one minutes done. Now I’m going to go ahead and go face down on my discs, and I’m going to do the mountain climbers. Now if you want to make this a little bit harder, you can go ahead get rid of one, and just do it with one leg on the ground. One minute one way and do one minute the other. Now, you wanna make sure that your hands, are right underneath your shoulders.
You wanna grab your other disc back and do it again. Go back into, grab something fairly heavy, hands are here and give yourself some jump, jumping jacks. Not Jane Fonda jumping jacks. Come on, were past that. We gotta take it to another level. Do a little split jump with it. Whoo heart rates at 164. Good. keep going go back into this. Come on lets see how high I can get it. 175 awesome. whoo, ok so we literally went from jump rope, high knees, mountain climbers, jumping jacks, back to the jump rope. So four, five, six, however many exercises. Think of anything that’s going to get you up there. Go around that, keeping your heart rate, a transition, look I’m still at 162.
Transition from one exercise to the other. No less, no more than five seconds. Literally, jump rope, boom, drop the jump rope, start hopping. So hope you guys like these things. 148. Still high. Let me know what you guys think. Do it, go nuts burn calories. five and six hundred calories. Keep the heart rate elevated. Get that heart stronger, that’s what its all about. Strong healthy heart, building stamina, burning calories. Oh what does that equal? oh, that equals results. Mmmhmm, it does. Alright, let me know what you guys thing. I hope you it. More to come.

Ok jennaguirre.com with your, free cardio workout routine. So, we are in my house now. You can see I got my kids tent in the background, you might see a little bit of that right over there, his little area, but were gonna work out right over here. So you know how big of a fan I am of the jump rope but if for some reason you can’t jump rope, you dont want to mess up your wood floors. you could always do other versions. So this is all about getting cardio. Cardio in your house, not having access. Lets just say its raining outside right now, you don’t have a jump rope and you don’t have a treadmill. I’m going to flash you guys almost every single video, and I’m going to show you, I got on my heart rate monitor again.
This is how, you are going to gauge your cardio. Ok, so lets just say you don’t have a treadmill, were just gonna start out, all about interval style of cardio for boredome purposes and because you’re not going to stand here in your living room, or whatever room in your house and do high knees for 45 minutes straight. So, were gonna do one and two minute intervals of everything. So high knees. I’m going to hold down my, my, I don’t even, I forgot her name from Star Trek.
My little puff, my little puffs back here. But whatever, I’m going to hold those and were gonna do high knees. Were gonna go here for one minute, oh, wait let me start my heart rate monitor. Boop, boop boop. Ok on, so now. High knees, ok. So lets just say, this, you could do this on the jump rope or you could just do this, high knees. Sixty seconds, two minutes, stay high. Lean back, put all of the focus on your back leg. Boom boom boom boom boom, one minute ok. Soon as you’re done with that, go right into, jump squats with a burpee. Ok were just getting dynamic here today. Get that heart rate up. What did I say? Get it to at least 140. I’m at 157. Ok, fast forward it is one minute.
I’m gonna do toe taps. You could do them, on your steps, or you could just do them, not standing. Ok. lean back, all on this leg. 165. Beautiful, one minute, done. Now I’m going to go and I’m gonna take my, paper towel, movers, whatever it is for your free, at home cardio routine. And I’m going to do tucks, as fast as I can. And I’m going to alternate them. Center, alternating. Center. As fast as I can. omg my legs are on fire. 163. One minute. Ok four exercises. Go back to high knees, hold onto your pom poms like me.
Then right after that, you got your burpees. Then your toe taps, then your fast tucks. Kill it. Go for as long as you can. Do two minute intervals of that. 2, 4, 6, 8, 8 minutes. Go around that, I don’t know five- six times. Time will go fast, calorie burn will be high. I’m still at 146. I don’t want you to rest in between. ‘Cause, lets just say you’re going outside and your are able to do a jog. You don’t run for a minute and then stop. It’s constant. That’s what I want you to do, constantly move. So if you’re trying to get, lets just say you just finished doing your high knees. Or you just finished doing one of the exercises, just don’t stop moving. Bounce around, do the peepee dance if you have to.
And then go right into the next exercise. But do not stop. You’re not going to be like this in the middle of your cardio workout. Just because my heart rate is still elevated, this does not count as cardio. Ok so, I hope you guys like this. Your free cardio workout routine. Let me know what you think. I don’t know what that was. But, let me know what you think, get at it, burn calories, I’m going to remind you guys again. 500-600 calories. Now I’m doing the robot. Alright I’m done. Go crazy, dude, I don’t, I can’t even, I’m still heart rate, still heart rate up, ok. Let know what you think, ok have fun. Bye.
