*Each quarter has three rounds of supersets inside - make sure you do a 1 to 1, work to rest ratio inside each round. In other words, do the 15 cals of cardio followed immediately by the exercise as hard as you can - then rest for as long as it took for you to do that round before you start the next round. Once you've done 3 rounds inside a quarter you're ready to move to the next quarter.

Follow along with Emily in the week's mobility video.
This is a power workout, so the intent is to blast each round at max effort and then take that same amount of time to rest/recover before blowing into the next round.
Like Day 2 - if you don't have all the cardio machines that's fine - use what you have - the key is to complete the number of calories - the type of machine is not critical.
