This At-Home Cardio Workout Contains Zero Running

A great way to get in or stay in shape is with an at home cardio routine. With our busy lifestyles today, most people don’t have the time to go to a gym or the desire to run outside. Naturally more and more people are looking to train at home as an alternative.

 

You can get your heart rate up in the comfort of your own home. Skip the gym and the cardio machines for this short, fun, and challenging cardio workout. We think you’ll love it! And your arms and legs will feel worked, too. Equipment wise, you will need a step (for step-ups) and a jump rope. If there are no stairs in your home, use a small bench, march in place with some vigor, or up the intensity by running in place doing the high-knee run — this advanced variation works the abs, too. If you don’t have a jump rope, just imagine you do and hop over your imaginary rope.
