Top 5 Fat-Burning Home Cardio Exercises

In today’s blog I want to share my Top 5 Fat-Burning Home Cardio Exercises with you!

As an at-home personal trainer in Dubai, I often have to take my clients through an effective workout with an absolute minimum of equipment available. Coming from a background of being a gym-dependent bikini fitness athlete who couldn’t imagine having a good workout without access to a full gym, this job has taught me so much about how little you really need to get a good workout in, and how in many cases, opting for a home-workout might be ideal for you if you have a busy schedule and otherwise wouldn’t be able to go at all.

Home workouts are truly undervalued and I want to show the world that you can get in GREAT shape, just from working out at home!

That’s why I want to take you through my Top 5 Fat-Burning Home Cardio Exercises!
These five exercises will get your heart rate up in the red zone – in the comfort of your own home!

You don’t need any equipment, but maybe you would like to have an exercise mat. So if you have one, just bring it. If you don’t have one, don’t worry about it for now. You really only need a floor, your body, and some comfortable clothes.

Top 5 Fat-Burning Home Cardio Exercises:

Exercise 1: Jumping Jack

The first exercise is the Jumping Jack. The Jumping Jack is a full-body exercise that could be done anytime and anywhere with absolutely no equipment. The standard version involves jump, but this can be scaled to suit every fitness level. To make it easier, skip the jump, and extend your feet out to the sides as you lift your arms. To make it harder, you can try the squat jacks, where you squat down, touch the floor, and then jump your feet and hands out. Or you can try star jumps. Again, you squat, and then you jump your feet and hands out without touching the floor. Choose the variation that suits your fitness level best.

To see examples of all the variations, watch the YouTube video.

Exercise 2: High Knees

The second exercise is the High Knees. They work your hip flexors and your abs while also surely firing up your heart rate. Make sure to step as fast as you can and bring your knees as high up to your chest as possible on every step. If you need an easier version, you can do them slower, without running, but still, make sure to lift your knees as high up as possible.

To see examples of both the variations, watch the YouTube video.

Exercise 3: Jump Squat

The third exercise I have for you is the Jump Squat. They work your legs and glutes, and the jump squat is probably one of the hardest and most effective exercises you can do at home to get your cardio in. Squat down, then jump up as high as you can, and land back on the floor on soft knees, squatting down again, and repeating. If you need an easier version, just do regular squats, skip the jump.

To see examples of both the variations, watch the YouTube video.

Exercise 4: Mountain Climbers

The fourth exercise is Mountain Climbers. They work your upper body and lower body and core simultaneously, and mountain climbers are just a great exercise to increase your cardiovascular endurance at home. It’s an intense but low-impact exercise that could be scaled to suit every fitness level. As an at-home personal trainer, this is probably my favorite home cardio exercise because it suits almost everyone. If you need an easier version, just place your hands on the wall and slow down the pace.

Exercise 5: Burpee

The fifth exercise is, of course, Burpees! You can’t say “cardio exercises to do at home” without mentioning burpees. This intense full-body exercise truly tests your cardio, muscle strength, and your ability to push through the pain. Just do something as simple as 100 burpees for time, or 10 burpees EMOTM (Every Minute, On The Minute) for five to 10 minutes, and you’ve had an amazing full body cardio workout. Burpees are amazing because they work your chest, legs, hip flexors, core, and cardio, all at the same time. If you need an easier version, step your feet back instead of jumping, and skip the push-up. This way, you still get the cardio benefits but skip the techincally more difficult, exposive movements.

To see examples of both the variations, watch the YouTube video.
