Cardio workouts can be a bit challenging on a boat but this bodyweight workout that I did yesterday is one that will surely get your heart rate up. It’s a good thing that we have been anchored in a spot where we can jump in the water to cool off after a good workout because I was definitely sweaty when I was done!
