If you thought a solid hour at the skate park was a workout, check out this innovative video from Fit Bitch.

The "total body strength, cardio, and core crusher" is a high-intensity, indoor or outdoor routine (think wide-grip push-ups, single-arm roll outs, lunges, and burpees) where a standard skateboard is the only equipment you need. We totally get it, too--the combination of the rough deck and rolling option is the perfect way to kick up the intensity on standard workout moves.

So next time you go out for a ride, hop off and fit this workout in. And, if you're a first timer, a helmet might not a bad idea either--that is, if a sweat is the only thing you want to break.
