Top Fat-Burning Cardio Exercises You Can Do Without Equipment

know-it-all regulars complicated machines pushy trainers mystery smells yep I'm talking about the gym why deal with all that when you can complete sweat inducing fat burning workouts without any equipment at all right from your own home .

jogging in place

seems simple enough but trust me doing this exercise for a couple minutes can get your heart rate up big-time jogging in place is a gentle way to get your blood pumping before the more heavy duty stuff.

 making it a great warm-up move it'll also keep that heart rate up in between more intense cardio exercises because why would you want to rest between exercises when you can squeeze in a little jogging ? 

hey that beach body ain't gonna magically appear on its own just saying of course you've got your standard jogging in place pretty self-explanatory you just lift each leg off the ground one by one swinger bent arms back and forth and literally jog without moving forward but there are other variations you can do to target different muscles 

for example if you really want to kick it up a notch and work those hammies and glutes you can turn this jogging into knee touches picking up your knee to about hip level with each lift it helps to hold your forearms out in front of you with the palms facing down that way you can try to touch your knee to your hand each time you bring it up another way to intensify this workout is by widening the distance between your legs if you have your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart it'll take even more energy to lift them up helping you get your heart rate up even more this is pretty good for your core and your glutes as well


 that's what they do after I drink a coke Oh wrong burpees okay then burpees the exercise but one of the best fat-burning moves out there to do a burpee find a spot where there's nothing around for you to bump into stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart or just slightly wider than that 

to start do a basic squat by going down into a sitting motion as if you're about to sit in a chair behind you as you hit the bottom of that squat put your hands forward flat onto the floor and push your legs back like you're gonna do a push-up 

next using your core strength tuck your knees back onto your body like they were doing that squat and stand back up if you're new to cardio burpees can really take a lot out of you

 so pace yourself and start slow so that you don't wear yourself out too fast for beginners just do ten in a row at your own pace as you build up your stamina and strength do two to three sets of ten to fifteen reps daily if you're comfortable doing the regular Burpee you can kick things up a notch by doing a little jump at the end with your hands of reaching towards the ceiling 

the key to this exercise is buoyancy when you're kicking your feet off the ground and getting back up putting all your energy into it with a little bounce is what will really get your heart rate going and that in turn will burn fat like there's no tomorrow and that's why we're all here right but burpees don't just boost your metabolism and turn your body into a calorie burning machine 

they also hit tons of muscle groups during that squatch you're working your hip and butt muscles kick back into that pushup there's your ab shoulder and arm workout if you jump up at the end you'll have shapely calves in no time yeah burpees are definitely worth the strenuous effort

the jab-cross

who says you need to go to the gym to practice your boxing moves you can do that right at home without any equipment or a fighting partner

 although imaginary partners aren't against the rules if you need to blow off some steam have crippling student loan debt works just a person 

anyway the jab cross is a fast-paced move you can do with your arms to really focus and get your heart rate up start by standing with your right foot slightly forward and your left foot straight under your body

 turn yourself slightly so that you're facing more toward the left keep your elbows bent and your hands and fist right under your chin really tense up those biceps take your right hand and propel it forward in a quick punch

 the key to this job is to quickly bring that arm back into the starting position after you punch this requires more energy and focus

 next comes the cross with your left fist punch forward while twisting your body slowly toward the right lifting your left heel off the ground to help propel you just like with that right jab bring your left arm in again right under your chin with a same amount of intensity and energy 

do the jab cross combination 20 times on each side for 2 to 3 reps and you'll be channeling your inner Rocky Balboa in no time this is a great way to get your heart rate up straighten the shoulders and upper arms and get that pent-up anger out

mountain climbers

 if you really want to work up a sweat mountain climbers will definitely do the trek not only does this exercise get your heart racing it also engages your core helping you to achieve those rock-hard abs of your dreams

 start on the floor with your arms holding you up in the push-up position and your legs stretch straight out behind you it should look like you're about to do push-ups or hold a plank keeping your back level and your arms sturdy

 start bringing your knees in under your chest one at a time this move should be done at a rapid pace and should look like you're climbing in place do as many mountain climbers as you can within 30 seconds 

if you are a beginner one set of these for 30 seconds should be enough but as you gain more stamina do three reps of thirty Seconds to really see the fat burning results
