Well, if you haven’t been doing cardio yet you are making a big mistake. Cardio workout is really important and will help you stay fit and healthy.
In case you did not know what cardio workouts are good for you then you are in the right place. To help you out, below in this article I have covered 5 cardio workouts that will work on your entire body.
You don’t really have to worry a lot since you won’t be climbing any real mountains obviously. Here what you will have to do is touch the ground with your hands and keep your legs and back in a slant pose. Now move your right foot near your chest and keep the left leg straight.
Now what you have to do is switch the legs as quickly as possible while making sure your core remains engaged. Keep doing this for at 15-20 reps before moving on.
Plank to Push-up
For this cardio workout as the name suggests you will have to start in a plank pose with your forearms on the floor. Now all you will have to do is elevate into a push up pose.
Remember that you will do it one hand at a time. Once you do that move back into a plank position. Do this at least 10-15 times for each arm and remember to switch arms as you do it.
If you love jumping exercises then you will definitely love the doing the tuck jump. What you have to do here is firstly stand up straight while keeping your knees a little bent and once you are in that pose you have to jump.
While jump bring your knees near to your cheat and put your arms straight out in the front and while coming doing put your arms back down. Do this at least 10-15 times and try and jump as high as you can.
One workout that is very effective but most people tend not to like is the standard burpee exercise. Here what you have to do is begin in a low squat pose with your hands touching the ground.
Now you have to kick your legs back and move into a push up pose and then return to the previous position quickly and then jump as high as you can before returning to the squat position once again. Do this for at 10 times.
Push Up Burpee
This cardio workout is very similar to the one I mentioned above except that it is a slightly more advanced exercise. You will have to start like you did for the previous one.
The only difference is that once you are in a push up position you will have to do a push up every time before you go back to the squat position and jump. You should do the push up burpee at least 8-10 times before you move on.
