Functional Cardio and Abs workouts are a fantastic option for men who want to regain an active lifestyle while taking care of any existing aches or pains. These workouts are a key part of the program I’ll be sharing with you below:
During phase one, which spans weeks 1-4 of the program, you’ll be incorporating these workouts into your routine a few times per week. (In addition, to maintain a well-rounded training regimen, we’ll also include some Metabolic Strength Training workouts and Recovery Focused Workouts on other days too.)
Fit Over 50 – Functional Cardio and Abs Workout
Move from one exercise to the next with minimal rest between sets. Once you’ve completed the entire circuit, take a 1-2 minute break before starting over again. Aim for six rounds in total:
— Jog In Place for 30 seconds
— Scissor Kicks – 10 reps per side
— Skaters – 10 reps per side
— Cross Crunches – 10 reps per side
— Mountain Climbers – 10 reps per side
— Reverse Plank – 30 seconds
One of the things I absolutely love about cardio and abs workouts like this is their simplicity and accessibility. You don’t need any fancy equipment or exceptional running abilities or anything else to reap the benefits. They are low-impact on your body and can be done anytime, anywhere.
