Anaerobic Cardio Workout
by Sárka-Jonae Miller
(The Best Years in Life)
Anaerobic exercise is a proven method for
building muscle, increasing power, and torching calories. Anaerobic means
“without air,” making it the opposite of aerobic (with air) exercise. This type
of short duration, high-intensity training gets your heart rate up by using
explosive movements that engage your muscles, increasing overall strength. The
trick is to work as hard as you can during the short periods of activity.
Next, perform Jump Squat Twists for 30 seconds. Begin with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart and lower into a deep squat. Explode upward into a jump and twist your body 90 degrees to the right while in the air. Land and immediately lower yourself into a deep squat again. Repeat the move, alternating sides until time runs out.

HIIT Arms Combo
Rest and move to the next exercise, tricep dips. Use a chair, bench, low wall, or something similar. Begin by sitting on the surface, hands beside your hips. Slip your rear off the bench and using your arms to support your body, lower your rear towards the floor. Push yourself back up to starting position and repeat.
Rest and then begin to crab walk. With your hands and arms on the ground behind you, push your core upwards into a bridge position. Begin to walk back and forth, maintaining the bridge position until time is up.
If performing sprints indoors, use a basketball sprint technique. Begin by running to one side the full distance that you have available. Touch the floor and immediately sprint back to the other side of the room and touch the floor again. Repeat for 45 to 60 seconds and then rest for 15, continuing for three to five sets.
Complete each set of exercises as directed, taking a 30-to-45-second rest before moving on to the next. If you need a longer rest period, take it and consider doing only one exercise per workout. Some forms of anaerobic exercise, especially powerlifting, can be dangerous for beginners, so speak with doctor first.
