{Super Sweaty 12 Minute Cardio HIIT}

I am always on the look out for a super fast cardio workout that I will enjoy! I do cardio 3 days a week while doing the Bikini Body Mommy 90 Day Challenge. I get bored easily so I always like to switch things up! I usually start my cardio days with a short but high intensity cardio HIIT or Tabata. After that I will do a "fun" workout video like yoga, dance, pilates or an ab/booty workout. My Pinterest board is FULL of fun videos to choose from.

I was really excited to come up with my own cardio workout to add into the mix. These are my all time favorite cardio exercises!! Let's just say it is called "Super Sweaty" for a reason! :) I was a mess after this workout but I loved it the entire time!! AND the best part about it.....Only 12 minutes long!!!!!! Everyone can squeeze in 12 minutes of exercise into their day! Right???

Please give it a try and comment back what you thought of it! I am DYING to know!



So get to it!! Get moving!! Have fun!! Don't ever do exercise that you don't enjoy! Being healthy and working out should be enjoyable!! :)


Have a great day!!

  1. Hi Ashley!

    Could you explain how some of the above exercises are performed (butt kicks, mountain climbers, and power skips specifically)? Thank you!

    1. Sure! The easiest way that I figure out the technique for exercises that I am not familiar with is to Google it and watch a video. I am the type of person that likes to see it done so I do it correctly! Here is my best explanation:

      For Butt kicks: Jog in place and with each stride...bring your heel up and attempt to actually kick your butt each time.

      Mountain Climbers: Assume a push-up position with your arms straight and your body in a straight line from your head to your ankles. Without changing the posture of your lower back, raise your right knee toward your chest.
      Pause, return to the starting position and repeat with your left leg. That is one rep.

      Power Skips: Skip in place but with each skip, propel yourself as high as you can in the air.

      Hope that helps! Let me know how it goes!! :)
