As with all new exercise routines, be sure to check with your doctor before beginning anything new.

1. Jog in place:

This is a simple fat burning cardio exercise that you can do anywhere. Stand in one place and start jogging. Try to bring your knees up as high as possible.  This exercise raises your heart rate just using your leg and abdominal muscle movements, without any equipment.

2. Mountain Climbers:

This is another exercise that will have you sweating in minutes. Again, this is an easy exercise which you can do anywhere, any time without any need for instruments. All you need is 3-5 minutes a day and some motivation to workout. Get down on the floor with your hands and knees in a push-up position. Bend your knees and bring one knee at a time from underneath your body towards your chest. Hop and switch leg position. Do it for one minute and rest for 10 seconds. Repeat 3 sets in 3 minutes.

3. Jumping Lunge:

Use your body weight to sweat without the need for any equipment. This should be easy enough for anyone and can be done anywhere if you have a few minutes to spare. Step forward with one foot, about 4 feet in front of you. Drop down in a lunge almost touching the ground. Jump back up and switch legs. Balance your body while doing this.

4. Jump up from push up position:

push upGo down in a squat and assume the position of a push-up. Jump up again from the push-up position and stand up with your hands held up high and again fall back down. Repeat this motion quickly several times in a minute. Rest for 10 seconds and then do a couple of more sets. This is an excellent exercise that works out a sweat very quickly, burning fat from your legs, arms, shoulders, stomach and buttocks. Do it anywhere, in 3 minutes.

5. Lateral Jump:

From a standing position, jump from side to side, moving all your weight on one leg to the other. Jump and switch legs by shifting your weight on the other leg and bending the other leg behind you. This is another simple exercise that gives you a good cardio workout and builds your leg muscles. Make sure you have good balance and control at all times.   

Note: If at any time you feel out of breath at any time during the minute-long bursts of exercises, stop and take a break. Do not perform these exercises if you feel pain in your knee joint or discomfort during any of these exercises. At the end of your routine, take a minute to do some stretches to cool yourself down.   If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us or put down your thoughts in the comment box below.
