With our fast-paced life, it can be extremely difficult for us to incorporate effective exercises and training regimes into our everyday routine. Because of a busy work schedule, our workout regime is the first to suffer. Fortunately, there are some exercises that are simple, easy to perform and burn the most amount of your calories. And just like other workout regimes, these 5 exercises also prove to be just as effective once incorporated in your day-to-day life.
- Skipping Rope
Grab a jump rope and start skipping. Jumping a skipping rope helps move lymph in your body and strengthens your bones thereby building valuable bone density. Jumping fast and adding variations like double jumps make for a good interval training. If you skip for a fixed period, say for 20 to 30 seconds with 8-10 rounds followed by a quick break to catch your breath, you will end up with a great cardio workout.
A Burpee workout is one of the best ways to burn fat while improving your strength and resistance. Burpees also help improve your breathing. This killer combination of freehand exercises can burn up to 50% more calories per minute. Along with burning more calories, it also helps improve your metabolism if done faster – about 10 sets a minute.
- Tabata Jump Squats
We all know squats are great! Performing squats for 4 minutes burns almost 30% of your calories. One of the great things about squats is that it keeps burning calories even after your session ends.
- Kettle Bell Swings
Kettle Bell Swings is an excellent workout to build strength in your core and lower body.While performing the swing, make sure that your hand is not swinging the kettlebell, but rather the movement is being performed by your lower body. The power should come from your hips, glutes, and hamstrings.
- Battling Rope
