At-Home Cardio Workouts: 12 Minute Cardio Day 2 Descriptions

Switch Lunge & Squat Jumps

Perform 2 lunges, then switch legs. After that, you will do 2 more squat jumps. This will work your legs mostly. But, you also want to engage your core. Draw your power from your abs, as well as, your arms to help you.

Walking Plank & Crab Toe Touch

This is similar to the Walkover Push-ups you did yesterday. But, you stay in the plank, instead of going down into a push-up. After you’re done with the plank, roll over each time. Here, you touch your toes like a crab. This will activate your lower abs and hamstrings. This variation doesn’t work your arms as much, instead putting the stress on your core.

Jump Rope: Left Leg Hops & Right Leg Hops

Time to use a jump rope! Perform some jump on one leg if you are capable. If not, stick to 2 legs and gain balance and strength over time. If you don’t own a jump rope, you can do high knees instead during this time.

Knee, Oblique, V Dips Using a Dip Station

Perform 2 knee dips, where you bring your knees into your chest. Then, do 2 oblique dips, where you swing your legs out to the side when you come down. Finally, do 1 V Dip where you swing each leg out to the opposite side.

You don’t want your back, or gravity, to be doing most of the work. Control each move, so that your core is doing the work. In fact, the  slower you go, the harder it is. Aim to be in control of these dips, to really burn fat and work your abs.

Get A Dip Station or Use Elevated Objects

Resistance training makes your at-home cardio workouts much more effective. Use a Dip Station or use weight that allows you to maintain proper form, but also challenges you on each exercise. Get a dip station to implement proper resistance training that helps shape your body.

If you don’t have a dip station, make sure to use suitable elevated object around your house. If you can’t find anything, have Amazon ship a Dip Station to your door. It’s worth it!
