WEEKLY WORKOUT: Workout #4 For Team 13

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

If you've been mixing things up with workouts #1, #2 and #3 you are going to love (and probably at times, hate) workout #4.

All of these moves will be familiar to you, which means you can really give 110%.  As Irene would say, "Yay"!

The big difference here is that you're only spending five minutes at a time on the eliptical (or the treadmill or doing whatever cardio you choose).  If you need ideas for cardio to do at home without any equipment, drop me a line at Erin.Kiernan@whotv.com and I'll give you some suggestions.  Try doing the 20-40 format ... go as hard and as fast as you possibly can for 20 seconds, then go at a normal pace for 40 seconds.  Do five cycles - then move on to a resistance round.

Cardio #1                 5 minutes on Elliptical - Use the 40 seconds/20 seconds protocol

Round #1  

Exercise #1               Step Back Lunge with Biceps Curl (10 repetitions each leg)

Exercise #3               The Shoulder Sequence (use 5 lbs.):
