HIIT Cardio Workout (Low Impact or High Impact)

We’re going WAY beyond “ball crunches” with these seven challenging core moves to fire up core, pelvic floor, back and butt!

Clear the lego and goldfish crackers off the carpet and let’s do this!

All you need is a yoga mat’s worth of space for this HIIT cardio workout and you’ll feel a head-to-toe burn with a serious 🎯 FOCUS on the core! 🎯

Pssst… HIIT = High Intensity Interval Training. And it’s pretty much the only way we do cardio these days, except for walks, hikes and bike rides!

High Intensity? At Mama Reset?

Yeah, baby.

While many of our Mama Reset workouts are 💯 low-impact for ALL bodies, we also throw higher intensity options into the mix to keep our advanced mama members on their toes!

This is the perfect example: a 10-minute HIIT cardio workout we created for our #MamaReset Membership with high- and low-impact options!

👩‍👧‍👦We both did this workout with our kiddos and they LOVED it! These big, loose movements are perfect for littles!

5 moves. 10 minutes. All you need is a yoga mat.

And some water. Grab some water. Because you are going to SWEAT!

▶️ Choose the high- or low-impact version of this workout that’s right for YOUR body!
