I have acchiles tendonitis, and thus stay away from long periods of impact on my ankles, specifically my right ankle and foot. So, I have been paying attention to a lot of athletes like Craig Ballyntine and monkey bar specialists like Hit Richards and Hannibal 4 King. Thy have emphasized bodyweigt cardio (jumping jacks, bodyweight-only squats, mountain climbers, and lunges, among other things. Has anyone else toyed with this conceot and seen results? This past Saturday, I did jump rope using tube socks and tennis balls to keep my height low, squats, lateral leg lifts over chair (P90X), simplified burpees (jump back, step forward, reach-not jump-up), and one minute fast high knees for my level 10. Comments and suggestions greatly appreciated!
Sounds interesting, if you can monitor your heart rate and hitting your zones for your 10's then I don't see why it wouldn't work. Good luck!

You can do 4 exercises then rest. making sure you get your heart rate in your target zone, recover and repeat. I also suggest. Speak to your doctor regards meds that will help with the tendonitis. Work on strengthening your ankle and stretches for it as well. Band work is also a great form of exercise.
Plyo from P90X is a great cardio work out. The first time I did it, I couldnt go up or down the stairs normally for over a week! I didnt realize how hard I was working because we were so busy giggling at Tony Hortons cheesy commentary. Ill bet you would see great results using this!
