Cardio/ Core

Not gonna lie, I am not a huge fan of cardio… I hate running, just hate it!  But I do it because, well I like to eat.  So this isn’t my favorite workout to do, but I make it happen. This was something I did when my boy was home sick.  I wanted to be outside to use my punching bag, but had limited weights in my garage… so I used a can of stain as my weight for the Russian Twists!  Use what you have…
