You can do complete Beachbody Cardio Programs or you can simply pick and choose some cardio workouts you want to do to get that heart rate racing.

What Is The Best Cardio Workout On Beachbody?

The Best Cardio Workout on Beachbody is Max Cardio Conditioning that is 50 minutes of pushing yourself to the brink. There is no repeat in this one making the workout go much quicker while scorching those calories. People tend to burn around 400-600+ Calories on this workout based on your weight and intensity you put in. 

The other two workouts on the Original Insanity that burn a well Insane amount of calories are Max Interval Circuit and Max Interval Plyo which both burn 500+ Calories in each workout if you are really pushing yourself during all the moves. If you aren't in decent shape that okay in our next section we go over the best beginner workouts to get to that next level quickly.

Best Beachbody Cardio Workout For Beginners

These workouts are designed to help you progress from Beginner to Intermediate so all you need to do is press play and get your nutrition down. Your main goal with nutrition should be to just cut back your Calories a bit each day around 250 then you are eating currently. Don't push it too much especially while training.

A lot of these workouts you will be burning 200-500+ calories. So you will already be in a deficit from what you were eating before. So even if you just maintain and don't increase your Calorie intake you will shed some weight. Download an app like “Lose It” to easily track your food and this will auto calculate your Macros. Macros are great when you want to get down to 10% or less Body Fat, but if you aren't there yet just focus on calories.

One of the Best Beginner Workout Programs we have found out there is surprisingly Insanity Max:30. Why is that surprising? Because it is also one of the best Intermediate To Advanced workouts in Beachbody as well.

This is possible because you only push yourself to failure then you take a break and go to failure again. On top of this they have some great modifiers.

Insanity Max: 30

Insanity Max 30 gets our vote and that is because it gets the job done with cardio and bodyweight trianing that raises you to a whole new level. You get into this program and stick to it for the duration you will come out a different person knowing you can push yourself harder then you had thought previously.

Below is the Calories my wife burned during the second weeks workouts. These results will be based on what fitness level you are at, but also keep in mind these are just the calories you are burning during the workout. Insanity Max:30 is High Intensity Interval training that will keep you burning calories all day long.

This brings massive results when you are pushing yourself to failure just to take a quick break and do it all over again. You can see that Shaun T is definitely the Cardio King when it comes to Beachbody Cardio Workouts with 4 of the top 6 being his programs. This is because his workout programs just plain and simply work and he does a great job of keeping you motivated.

Short and Sweat – T20 came in at 2nd with 21%. This workout program is no joke and all you are adding is a simple step just like the 80's lol.
