Cardio Kickoff : A Fitstar App, Program Review


Sunday My wife and I tried out the Program Cardio Kickoff by Fitstar.  I found that the warm up exercises were a little boring after the 1st 60 seconds. I personally would like them to use more exercises rather than prolong the amount of time, but that is my opinion. Let me know if you think they  are too long below. I would love to know if it is just me.

I did like the variety of push ups that the program provided.

      90/120 sec

LOL, I originally didn’t notice that I had increase my BACK and CHEST to a 6 and CARDIO to a 8 until I copied the workout for this blog. I guess that is good. There is nothing to reference it to.  Overall I did enjoy this workout and found it challenging. My one negative about this workout is that the warm up is for 6 minutes which is great, but there is no cool down at all. To finish on salmon jumps and mountain climbers are pretty high intensity exercises.  Abs or  back extensions would have been better here to allow for the heart to slow down and get closer to your normal rate.
Again please let me know if you think that the duration for some of the exercises are too long or if you think that they are fine at 2 minutes.
Check if you feel the exercises are too long or just right.


That’s all for today.

I’m Outta Here, PEACE!!!!!
