In true NML fashion, we’re starting day one strong with this cardio + core + leg trifecta workout. I’ve shared a lot of workouts with you, but I think this trifecta workout is my favorite yet. I gave this 30-minute workout a test run with a couple girlfriends last weekend and we all agreed, it was the perfect way to start our girls weekend in Stillwater, MN.

So grab a girlfriend or two and start the 5 Day Healthy Living Challenge with this cardio, core, and leg combo. The ultimate 30-minute workout, rotating cardio and lower body strength training intervals, followed by two challenging core exercises.

  1. Omg just done your workout, i got sweat much and felt so fresh 😀
    But as i don’t have the kettle bell so i use normal weight plate instead and it still works haha 🙂
    Thank you so much 🙂

    • Emily! Nice work lady! So glad you loved this workout as much as I do! And absolutely you can always sub the kettlebell for a dumbbell or plate. Nice work, thanks for sharing your results, and have a great week! xo-Lindsey

  2. Your instruction really inspires me to start the day with 2 min cardio. I bet that I’ll look more attractive after trying these workout.

  3. Recently my close friends love doing squats so much. I thought they are inspired by Kim Kashadian. (I’m not her fan, whatever). The good point is their hips and legs improved remarkably. Your suggestion here I think it can helps my friends too. Thanks.

    • Hi Michael! Thanks so much for sharing, I’m a huge fan of squats myself (not because of Kim either…but I have my own reasons). Squats are such a foundational exercise and I pretty much include them in all my workouts! Enjoy and thanks for sharing with your friends! -Lindsey

    • Thanks for checking out the workout Jack! It’s a sweaty one that’s for sure, you absolutely have to give it a try! -Lindsey

    • Nice work Bri! Best way to start the day strong. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have an amazing day! xo-Lindsey
