Cardio Pyramid

The Cardio Pyramid, created by Colorado State University, is a fun, upbeat workout that you can do at home. Instructional videos are available that break down each move in the pyramid, including warm-up and strength-building exercises, into simple steps so that you can learn the proper form necessary to complete each move.

To do the Cardio Pyramid, do the exercises in this order:

  • March in place, 2 counts of 8
  • Step touch, 2 counts of 8
  • Hamstring curls, 2 counts of 8
  • V-step, 2 counts of 8
  • High knees, 2 counts of 8
  • March in place, 3 counts of 8

Then repeat the exercises in the opposite order. To access the instructional videos to learn how to do each exercise, go to this eating smart being active website.
