FREE SAMPLE WORKOUT
This free sampler will give you a taste of my style.
A typical #ConditioningwKandace workout would include a flow like the one below, although it would be bookended with a lot more fun!
Be sure to start with a warm up and movement prep series that prepares your lower body properly, before you attempt this flow.
When you are ready, perform 3-5 rounds of the following exercises, tabata style. That's 20 seconds of work with 10 seconds of rest, and a full 1 min of rest between rounds.
Have fun and let me know what you think!
