This thirty minute set of cardio exercises will surely get the best of your body and maintain your health as well. It is useful within a wide range of fitness levels mainly because of the easiness to modify them so they can be more or less challenging for you.

As much of a great cardio routine it is for intermediate exercisers, even the advanced and more experienced exercisers are definitely likely to break a sweat over the course of the half hour workout.

In addition, it makes up for a perfect recovery cardio workout, and that is a simple routine that burns off a tremendous amount of calories without disrupting the resting or healing process after an intense interval training or strength training routine.

Most of the times you won’t even need a single piece of gym equipment to do the workout, but you are always free to add some dumbbells to some of the exercises as to increase the overall difficulty of the workout.
