In this article we are going to talk about 6 exercises that will help you shape and tone your body.
Running is the best way to shape your body and lose weight, but if you don’t like running, these exercises will provide even better results.
- Mountain climbers
Mountain climbers provide amazing results and are very effective because they engage the whole body. They also strengthen the leg muscles, arms and core, and improve the circulation. You need to do a few sets of 50.
- Jump rope
This is an amazing cardio exercise because this way you can burn calories while increasing your stamina. You can use a jumping rope to alter your routine like tuck jumping or accelerating or slowing down the pace.
- High knee sprints
This exercise is effective when it comes to burning calories and accelerates the rate of your heart more than running or jogging. You can maintain the same pace every time, but we recommend that you increase the speed in order to achieve better results. You can combine this exercise with jogging, but slow the pace by making a break and then resume with your jogging.
Burpees are an exercise that enhance your stamina and activate your whole body by targeting your central body part. It is very similar to up downs, the only difference being an added jump. After you complete your first couple of sets, accelerate your motions and then do them as fast as you possibly can. In order to achieve better results, you need to do around 100 burpees a day. This way, you will be able to see the results in one week!
- Long jumps
You are going to need an open and wide space in order to do this exercise properly. Your feet need to be standing firmly on the ground, and then you need to gather all the force that you possibly can and jump forward. This exercise needs to be repeated in sets of 10 to 20 jumps for a minimum of 3 times. With this exercise will improve your balance and coordination, and they will greatly help you to tone and strengthen your body.
- Tuck jumps
Another effective way to burn calories and improve stamina is by doing tuck jumps. You need to extend your arms in front of your body and when you jump, you need to pull up your knees in an attempt to touch your hands with the knees. Do this exercise in sets.
