Home Exercise Cardio Without Equipment: Does A Bodyweight Workout Work?

Posted Dec 14 2010 5:57pm

I often get asked this question:

How can I get a cardio workout in at home without a treadmill or other expensive equipment?

Easy. My answer might even surprise you if you’re a new reader on here.

Without a doubt, my favourite cardio exercises using only bodyweight exercises are:

* Up Downs

* Burpees

* Plyometric Jumps

* Body Blasts

* Step ups if you have a bench or step handy

* Box jumps if you have a step handy

* Finally a great one I really like doing is virtual skipping .

This sounds silly, but is great if you don’t have a skipping rope available (or the space to skip) or just find it really hard to keep the momentum going without breaking the jump by tripping on the rope.

All you do is bounce up and down while moving your hands like you are skipping. This is so you get the little muscles in your shoulders really working too.

Give it a go. You’ll be surprised by how challenging they all are.

I’d also love to hear your solutions down in the comments section below as well.
