06 Mar 12-Minute Morning Cardio (Safe For Knees)
Nothing feels better than starting your day off with a quick sweat session. Not only is it nice to be done with your workout before your day has truly begun, a morning workout can set you up for a healthy day.
When you begin your day with a healthy choice, you tend to continue to make healthy choices throughout the day. You workout and feel great so you have a nutritious breakfast. You had a good breakfast, so you eat a clean lunch... This goes on until you wake up the next morning and do it again!
This cardio workout is the perfect length and intensity to add into your morning routine. The workout will only take 12 minutes, and it will leave you feeling sweaty and strong. The best part? There is no jumping or running involved in this cardio routine. All of these exercises are low impact. So you don't have to worry about upsetting your neighbors or your knees early in the AM.
