Fat Blasting Cardio for Women Who Don’t Jump

By on January 1, 2012

By Jill Rodriguez –

I will never forget my first day years ago, working with a trainer (she was teaching me the ropes) at a Baby Buggy Boot camp class. I won’t forget because the first exercise she wanted the moms to do was jumping jacks. Having had a baby, knee surgery, and big breasts, I don’t do jumping jacks.

Fortunately, I had a quick modification for the moms who looked panicked.

There are many reasons why I came up with cardio variations for Women Who Don’t Jump. Some of those reasons are:

  • Knee, Hip, Ankle, Foot injury/discomfort/instability
  • Pelvic floor weakness
  • Being Overweight
  • Large Breasts
  • Post-partum
  • Vertigo
  • Fear
  • Indifference

Jumping for many women, for various reasons can be just plain uncomfortable. Fortunately, my personal experience and working with women of all sizes, ages, and life experiences led to various modifications and thus, this quick Fat Blasting Cardio Routine. You may follow along with the video.
