If you need to get a good cardio workout inside your home - you have to try plyometrics.
Plyometrics (also called jump training) uses gravity and your body weight to maximize muscle exertion. Here are my 3 go to plyometric exercises:
🏋🏽♂️ Shifting Squats (3 Reps of 20)
Go into a wide squat, and then shift your weight over to one side into a side lunge. Next bring your unstable knee up to a 45 degree angle jump up on your standing leg.
🏃🏾♀️ Half Burpees (3 Reps of 20)
While you’re totally welcome to do full burpees - I prefer half burpees because they are done without pushups. Pushups are great, but my form tends to struggle when I do them during burpeees.
To do a half burpee, get into a plank position. Next jump your feet to your hands into a squat, and then from the squat, jump into the air with your hands reaching upward.
🕴🏾Jump Tucks (3 Reps of 10)
These are brutal! Start in a squat, and then jump up so that your hands can catch your ankles behind you.
I hope these are some helpful workouts to get in some good cardio while we’re stuck at home! #homeworkout #workout
