What is the best overall workout under an hour that combines cardio and strengthening?
I like Dr. Axe's Burst Training video on YouTube...

It only takes 5 minutes and no equipment. It includes running in place, push ups, rest, squats, bicycles, rest, mountain climbers, and burpes.
I have a Hub on various exercise videos that I like ...

5 minutes is unrealistic for a quality cardiovascular workout. The industry is trying to sell quick fixes which will not offer the results that exercisers deserve. Coming from a sports science background I find it awful that such options are proposed
If you have the money, join a crossfit gym. It's a pretty intense group/class style workout that involves cardio and strength.
They are really expensive though. One of the one's i checked out in my town was $150/month. I didn't see the value, since I get a free gym membership through my work. But, the results speak for themselves. People get into amazing shape with crossfit.
Exactly what do you want to achieve cardio and strength wise? People can offer solutions but in honesty this question needs specific information.
Such a solution would be related to age, any underlying medical conditions, and what tge exerciser wishes to achieve?
Strength is also very specific And needs further explanation.
Oooh, good questions.Thanks Cycling Fitness.I am 52 and in fantastic shape. 5'5" and 120lbs No underlying medical conditions. I want to tone and get a cardio workout at the same time.I lift weights and do kickboxing but want to do it at same time.
Circuit weight training is a great option for an overall workout that combines strength and cardio exercise. You can even add in some high intensity interval training in-between weight circuits. Full body circuit training can be done three days per week, or half body circuit training can be done four days per week. An example for full body may be something like the following:
CIRCUIT 1 (3 rounds before moving to the next circuit)
(A1) Dumbbell squats, 8-12 reps
(A2) Dumbbell rows, 8-12 reps
(A3) Mountain climbers, 1 minute
REST 2 minutes
CIRCUIT 2 (3 rounds before moving to the next circuit)
(B1) Stiff-legged deadlifts with dumbbells, 8-12 reps
(B2) Dumbbell shoulder presses, 8-12 reps
(B3) Jumping jacks, 1 minute
REST 2 minutes
CIRCUIT 3 (3 rounds before moving to the next circuit)
(C1) Side lunges with dumbbell, 8-12 reps
(C2) Dumbbell chest presses, 8-12 reps
(C3) Burpees, 1 minute
This is just an example. Depending on your exercise level, you may have to adjust circuit rounds, exercises, or rest times.
