10-Minute Tuneups: Kick-butt cardio workout video

Get ready to kick it up! This cardio workout includes a little bit of everything: it works the upper body, engages the core muscles, and gets your legs moving. To get the most aerobic benefit from this workout, do as many of each of these exercises as you can, as fast as you can.

How it works:

Warm up: The first one-minute exercise segment will provide a brief warm-up to get your major muscles moving.
Gauge the intensity: Use a stopwatch, the timer on your phone, or a clock with a second hand to keep track of the time for each exercise. Your working muscles should feel ready to change to the next exercise by the end of each segment.
Cool down and stretch: You will do a less intense move, such as walking around the room, then stretch the major muscle groups you’ve just worked.
