As you can see all the cardio that I did to contribute to my weight-loss was aerobic and reasonably low intensity, but for  long periods of time, so get that music in with a killer playlist!! The routine seemed to work for me when I did it 2/3 times a week, please feel free to ask me any questions, or let me know if you tried the routine and how your progress is going!

All the best,

Stay confident, stay happy,
