Fall Into Cardio Outdoors

Here are two new fun options to help you 'fall into cardio outdoors.' Fall is a great time to get outside--the weather generally cooperates and as the days get shorter the mood boost from exercise is appreciated. 

HIIT The Track 20 minutes

This workout is a High-Intensity-Interval-Training (HIIT) and is best for those with a fitness base.

Find a local track and use a watch or smartphone app to time your intervals using a 1:3 ratio of work-to-rest. Use a heart-rate monitor to gauge your intensity and hit that fat-burning button dead on.

Min        Activity/ % intensity

0-2         Brisk walk 60% (warm-up)

2-3         Jog 70%

3-3:30    Sprint 80%

3:30-5    Jog 50%

5-5:30    Spring 85%

5:30-7    Jog 50%

7-7:30    Sprint 90%

7:30-9    Jog 50%
