Michele’s Cardio Pyramid Challenge Workout

This is my second workout. I did one yesterday for Millionaire Hoy’s new Youtube Channel – Sweat Stream Tv.  He asked if I would like to be a guest host. So today I needed to do my regular video. Since I had done a lot of leg moves with cardio yesterday, I decided I would do a combination move and then move into more of a cardio strength workout for the upper body.  There are some legs in there, but the focus is on upper body.  I wanted to use as little equipment as possible, so most of the exercises can be done with a set of moderately heavy dumbbells. I am using my Ugi Ball, the E-Z Curl Bar with an extra 15 lbs on it, 15 lb dumbbells and 10 lb dumbbells. The workout breakdown is below.
