Extreme Cardio Workout

Grab those runners, pump up tunes and water bottle because this amazing cardio workout will have you sweating and feeling awesome! I have had knee problems for many years and recently it got so bad that I was diagnosed with Platellofemoral Pain Syndrome, so in simple terms a super painful knee injury that is otherwise known as Jumpers Knee, and causes ongoing inflammation and pain. Thankfully though, I currently have it under wraps, icing my knees after every workout and avoiding all plyometric, or jumping, exercises. Because of this pain and injury, I have designed all of my workouts since to be friendly to all of those knee-injured individuals, because when I say I know your pain…I actually seriously do! So if you have sensitive knees I am happy to say that you too can partake in this killer good cardio session and feel no pain and you will not have to make up your own variations to certain exercises! Lets get PUMPED UP BECAUSE HERE WE GOOOO! 🙂DSC03363 - Version 2.jpg
