Cardio workout with Weights and Ab Finisher

About the Workout

This is Naomi Joys' Trampoline Cardio Workout With Light Weights/ Lower Abs Finisher. This workout will be 25 mins of low impact cardio (complete with warm up), with 5 mins of lower abs exercises, followed by a relaxing stretch. We will be toning the upper body and increasing the cardio challenge by adding light hand weights. She is using 3lbs (1.4 Kg) in this video. She wouldn't recommend going much heavier than that, as you want to focus on keeping your shoulders back and down. Form is everything! She is jumping on a 48-inch Red Rebounder.
