Cardio Workouts That Can Be Done in Your Living Room
Published By John Davenport on 2011-10-08 73 Views

When you think about cardio you imagine a someone doing breaststrokes in a pool or cycling up a mountain road or simply running on a treadmill at the gym. However, cardio doesn't have to take you away from your home. You can easily do great cardio workouts in your living room. Let's see what are the options that you have.

The first thing you can do is use a workout program of some sort. You can find hundreds of workout DVDs that you can use in the comfort of you home to do cardio. There are aerobic dance videos, walking classes, and others. You have a lot of diversity and range of options to choose from. Try to find a program which is right for your current fitness level but is still a plan that you can grow with.

The second thing that you can do is to purchase a cardio machine. As long as you have the space in your livingroom and you can comfortably place a treadmill, bike, or elliptical trainer in there, you can do pretty good workouts with such a machine. However, you need to be ready to spend hundreds or even in excess of $1,000 to buy a quality machine in good condition. So this may not be right for you at the moment.

What you can also choose to do is to perform bodyweight cardio exercises which can either be done at home or in a nearby park. You can get a pretty solid workout with the right exercises.

You may choose to use cheap equipment such as a jumping rope or an aerobic step. In the past I used to do feet switching on stairs for 30-45 minutes and I can tell you that I got great results with it.

However, you may also choose to combine a few of the following exercises: jumping jacks, running in place (with high knees), side to side jumps, squat jumps, lunge jumps, using a punching bag which you can hang in your living room, etc.

What I like to do is to take 5-6 jumping exercises and do them one after the other for a power circuit. Once this circuit is over (and it can be pretty tough), I rest for a minute and then repeat the circuit once more. You may choose to change the order of the exercises in each circuit. This is how you can do great cardio workouts in your livingroom.
