This video covers some simple cardio intensive exercises that you can do with no equipment and limited space! You might have heard of some of these before: Star jumps High knees Mountain climbers Burpees In the video I run through the correct movement standards as well as provide tips and regressions for anyone that struggles with these movements. There are a number of ways you could incorporate these in to your day. You might want to create a workout combining last week's strength exercises and these cardiovascular intensive exercise.
- Try doing 1 minute on each movement (totalling 5 minutes) then have 1 minute rest. Repeat for as many rounds as you have time for. OR...
- Put an alarm on your phone to get up from your work station every 10/15/30 minutes to do 10 repetitions of one or all of these movements! (If you did 10 star jumps every 30 minutes for a full 8 hour day, you'd have done 160 star jumps by the end of the day!) I've been doing my home workouts outside whilst the weather is nice which has been fantastic for my mood... and my tan! But you could equally do these movements indoors as demonstrated in the video (which will come in handy when our usual standard of British weather returns.) SO NO EXCUSES NOT TO EXERCISE, WHATEVER THE WEATHER!
