It’s very important for our heart to do some kind of cardio a few times a week. The general guidelines are 30 minutes of moderately intense cardio 5 times a week. I know that can be hard to fit in even when we are working at home. So, I try to do a 15 minute cardio workout 3 times weekly at least and then fit in more as my schedule allows. Personally, I feel like it’s best to do it in the morning to help me wake up and get myself motivated for the day. So, I decided to share 5 of my favorite at home cardio workouts that are quick, easy, and fun. There is something for everyone from quick 10 minute workouts, to fun dance sessions. Best of all, these are all on YouTube and are free. You can do these anywhere whether you have a computer, phone, or tablet.
Also a quick update on my workout wear! I have been wearing Fabletics non-stop since I have been stuck at home and they are just so comfy. Not only are they great for my at home workouts, but also just as lounge wear. This set I’m wearing is my new April set, which can be purchased together, or separately. When you sign up to be a VIP member, you also get to take advantage of the deals they have like the 2 for $24 leggings and bottoms, which my bike shorts are a part of.
Pamela has my favorite workouts, since they are short and you feel a good burn. They also are not complicated, so anyone can do them. As she says, you can always find 10 minutes in the morning, between study sessions, or before bed.
This has been one of my favorite home cardio workouts lately. It’s a quick 15 minute workout and I love to dance, so it’s a fun one to do on my lunch break.
This isn’t a dance workout, but with all the jumping, it kind of seems like it. It’s another great short home workout that you can easily fit into your daily routine.
This workout is a bit more intense even though it’s only 15 minutes long. It will workout your whole body and may be the only workout you will need for the whole day. If you fee like you need 30 minutes of cardio then you could do it twice in a day.
Once a week, I like to do a longer cardio workout as my only workout for that day. Most other days when I do a short cardio workout, I will also do a short abs, or butt workout as well. This HIIT workout will give you the cardio you need and workout your whole body.
If none of these work for you, then you could always go old school and head out for a jog in the neighborhood. Let me know which of these are your favorite if you try them. If you are looking for some more workouts to do at home, check out my post on 10 apps for at home workouts.
