7-Minute Cardio Circuit That Transforms Your Body

Many people believe that you have to spend 30 minutes to an hour on the elliptical or treadmill for a proper cardio workout. But if you're trying to burn fat, this approach might not help you reach your goal.

To really test your muscles, cardio strength and mental stamina, a quick, short cardio circuit will help you burn more fat in less time. The best part: you can do this seven-minute workout anywhere.

Combining bodyweight exercises with Crossrope is a convenient, quick way to burn calories, especially for those with busy work and family schedules. Jumping rope with a lighter and heavier rope will provide a high-caloric burn in a short period of time. Superset each exercise with bodyweight movement to build muscle and boost your cardiovascular strength.

Grab a heavy and light jump rope to complete this seven-minute cardio circuit indoors or outdoors. Repeat each round 2 to 4 times.
