Easy Warm Up Cardio Workout

This 5 minute warm up cardio workout is ideal for getting the blood flowing and the muscles warmed up for more strenuous challenges to follow. Light cardio and fluid stretching movements are essential to lessening the likelihood of muscle and ligament strains. It’s also a good idea to gradually introduce physical effort to your cardiovascular system so as to not shock the body into sudden exertion.


No equipment is needed for this workout, only bodyweight exercises are used. As an added benefit, this is a calorie burning warm up that helps you get a jump start on your fat burning because of the multiple muscle groups used during the light bodyweight cardio moves.

Once you have warmed up why not give this core and cardio workout a try?
