Cardio-pump is a combination of a traditional aerobics class with resistance exercises. Following a warm-up session, some classes concentrate on alternating between an aerobic workout that raises the heart rate and resistance exercises that focus on muscle groups. Other styles of class separate the two sessions.
Cardio-pump classes often use hand weights to add further resistance and help in the toning sections. Cardio-pump is an excellent workout as it provides great cardiovascular training and a muscle sculpting session that is not confined to one area of the body. Cardio-pump classes can be great fun and very motivational.
Call your local gym or leisure centre to see if they offer cardio-pump classes.
