Do you love to exercise at home, but don’t know how to do cardio? While cardio helps us sweat more and burn calories from our body, we must admit that we are used to it being done with equipment or outdoors.
But although there are many exercises that you can perform in open space, there are also those that you can do without any problem at home, so choose some of them and include them in your daily routine, you will see that you will not regret it!
1- Bicycle crunches
They are simple to do. All you need is a mat or a towel that you lay on the floor and lie down. Raise one of your legs at a 90-degree angle to about the middle of your abdomen and bring the opposite elbow to the knee of the raised leg, then do the same with the other limbs. Perform 4 sets of 25 repetitions, resting 20 seconds between each set.
2- Mountain climbers
Stand with your face to the floor, arms outstretched, legs extended and abdomen tense, similar to a plank. Now lift one leg to chest level and then the other as if you were climbing a flight of stairs, only in a different position, level with the floor. Do 4 sets of 30 repetitions, resting 20 seconds in between each.
3- Rising plate
Get ready to not only break a sweat, but also to strengthen almost your entire body. Stand with your legs open at about shoulder height and lower your body without bending your knees so that your hands touch the floor. Gradually stretch until you are in the Plank position, supported by your forearms and elbows, and then return to standing. Remember not to bend your knees. Perform 4 sets of 15 repetitions, resting for 20 seconds in between.
4- Lateral kicks
Stand with your legs together. Step up sideways with one of your legs; you will feel the effort in your thighs, buttocks and lower abdomen. Perform 4 sets of 15 repetitions per leg (30 total), resting 20 seconds in between each set.
5- Quick squats
Standing shoulder-width apart, perform squats by going down and up quickly. Although this is a quick exercise, you must pay close attention to your posture to avoid injury, and most importantly, perform the exercise correctly. Perform 4 sets of 18 repetitions, resting 15 seconds between each set.
6- Plank up and down
This exercise is ideal for strengthening your belly and arms. Get into the typical position for performing planks and bend your arm to perform the prop, now with the forearm and do the same with the other arm, then return to the original position with both arms straight. Perform 4 sets of 15 repetitions, resting 15 seconds between each set.
7- Wall squat
While it may seem simple, but the truth it is exhausting, but it strengthens your legs, buttocks and abs. Sit in a squat position and lean against the wall so that you stay in this position for 60 seconds. Do this exercise four times, resting 15 seconds in between each time.
8- Knee Lift Jump
It is simple but effective to sweat and get rid of stress. What you will do is to start jumping in one place, lifting one of your knees, raising it more or less to your waist. Do 4 sets of 30 repetitions, resting 15 seconds between each set.
