Who has time after getting free from the workplace, the last thing we want to do is shut ourselves in between four walls again, especially now that the days are longer, and we are reluctant to leave social life behind. But we don’t want to give up staying in shape and that’s why we’re getting our batteries together so we can train at home. It is clear that a full cardio session, one of those in which you give everything, is a good start and it is not just us who say it, the fitness gurus also have the same opinion. They share fitness sessions on their Instagram that work on different parts of the body.
According to fitness Guru Krissy Cela, each exercise should be done for one minute with no rest between them. Once the series is over, we can catch our breath for two minutes and then repeat the entire series one more time. As you will see, it is a short but highly effective routine that will make you sweat and activate your heart to burn as many calories as possible.
So here are four cardio exercises that can be done in your living room in 20 minutes
1. Mini jump squat. We know the benefits of squats, but in this variation, we are maximizing effort. By incorporating the small jump accompanied by the movement of the arms, we get the whole body involved, and the muscles of the shoulders and abdominals also come into play. The key is to put your whole body to work half the time.
2 . Reverse squat lunge. The perfect combination to work the thighs, calves, and buttocks, also involving the lower abdominal area (necessary to maintain balance in the stride). It will give a spectacular result if you mark each position thoroughly
3. Mountain climbers with flexion: Perhaps the most complete exercise of the entire series. With it, the cardiovascular effort is undeniable, but you will also be putting your shoulders, arms, chest, abdomen, and legs into motion. And when combined with a push-up, the effect is enhanced in all these areas.
4. Jump with high knees. You work core, do cardio, increase leg strength and harden your glutes. It seems incredible that a single exercise can give us so much, but if you do it consistently you will see results in record time.
