Why home cardio workouts? Because of the nature of the activity, they just work better for fat burning, as well as improving cardiac and muscular health.
If I had a dollar for every time a new client came to me for fat loss advice and told me all they were doing to lose fat was walking around their neighborhood while gabbing with their friend I would be a rich woman.
You might lose a little fat walking around the hood but you will quickly plateau if you don’t shake things up a bit.
Research confirms that adding high intensity interval training to your fat loss exercise regime will significantly increase your fat burning success.
So much so that women in a recent study who never changed their diet STILL lost more fat doing the intervals then women doing only long slow cardio such as walking and cleaning up their diets.
Here is a list of home cardio workouts you can do anytime right at home that will ignite your fat burning engine:
#1: Stair exercises
You can run the stairs using either the stairs at your house or perhaps a set in your neighborhood or local park. Just alternate jogging or running up the stairs with a short break when you get to the top. Make sure to be careful and walk on the way back down.
If you know me, you know this is one of my favorite home cardio workouts to do. It can be pretty tough and some days I take pride in that. The best thing about burpees is that not only are they a total body exercise but you can modify them to meet your current fitness level. Burpee progressions include: squat thrust -> burpee ->burpee with jump ->burpee with push up -> burpee with push up and jump->burpee with push up, jump, and chin up -> burpee with push up, jump, chin up, and knee lift.
