30 Mountain Climbers
This probably is the most effective workout as it works on the entire body as you need to use your whole body to do them correctly. Some benefits that come with mountain climbers are increased circulation, stronger arms, core and leg muscles. All you need to do is a couple set of 50 and you can do them while watching TV if you like.
Your entire body is at work when you perform this move. Your core, arms and back all work together to stabilize your movement as you push up and down
20 Tuck Jump
It is quite logical to think that jumping in place cannot be as good as running, but the fact is that tuck jumps can boost your stamina and help you get rid of a huge number of calories in a short period of time. The best part is that you don’t have to go out to exercise and you don’t need a spacious room to perform them. While you are performing tuck jumps, put your arms in front of your body and extend them. In addition, pull the knees up while jumping.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try, try, try again.
Similar to up-downs with a jump added into the motion, this is a full body exercise targets your central part and also increases your stamina. After the first couple of sets, you should be able to the increase the speed of your motions. For optimal results, try to do them as fast as you can. Ideally, you should be doing 100 of these per day. The results will be inevitable in only a week.
30 Jumping Jacks
Add light hand weights to this simple aerobic exercise if you’re looking for a challenge, and make sure to keep your back straight!
60-Second Plank Hold
“Core strength” is more than just a fitness buzz term, remember that you probably don’t do enough sit-ups. Core strength actually refers to the strength of deep muscle groups in your abdomen, back, and glutes — the three muscle groups that are essential to supporting your spine and helping you maintain your balance.
Complete these six moves to completion, and then repeat two more times for a total of three rounds.
