Are you hungry for something that kicks your workout regime up a notch?

If so, may we suggest the delicious Cardio Sandwich?


 cardio sandwich


lifting weights1. Two sets of cardio (treadmill, elliptical, stair-climber, stationary bike, or your favorite heart-raiser)

2. One set of resistance (a few weights, kettlebells, weighted balls or even  push-ups)

3. A pinch of discipline



  1. Set a training goal that pushes your current workout. For example, if you currently run on the treadmill for 20 minutes, set your goal to 45 minutes.
  2. Take a deep breath and get ready to go hard.
  3. Do your favorite cardio as hard as you can for 10 minutes less than your current time (10 minutes if cardioyou currently run 20).
  4. Jump off the machine and walk quickly over to the weight room.
  5. Do your favorite resistance training, without taking breaks, for the same amount of time. (It’s important not to take breaks here. Instead, switch up the exercises so your legs rest while you work the arms or abs.)
  6. Then, head right back to the treadmill (or another cardio machine) to repeat step three. But this time, no need to push yourself.
  7. Repeat twice weekly and start enjoying the results!
