Most people give up on their New Year's Resolutions by March. Don't be one of them! If your goal was to lose weight then try this routine and get back to torching those calories and dropping the pounds.
A combination of cardiovascular exercise and resistance training has proven to produce some of the best results. That is why this workout will include both. You will alternate between the two forms of exercise to create the most work for your heart while providing the opportunity to catch your breath without stopping the exercise.
Of course, if you need to take a break then please do so. As always, please consult with your physician to see if this program is right for you. You participate in this workout at your own risk. Neither I or any of the social media networks I post to are responsible or liable for anything that happens during your workout. Listen to your body! Please be sure to warm up and cool down properly.

For this routine I used my EverlastingFit jump rope. I love it! It is pink, fast, and super light. If you are struggling with your jump rope then you need to check out a wire rope. They are so much easier than any other kind that I have used. The bearings make them spin smoothly. I have never had an issue with them kinking, catching, or stopping me mid-jump. If you don't have a jump-rope then I seriously suggest you try adding them to your routine.
If you want one like the one that I used for this workout then you can find more info about them HERE.
