Today she got a Health Magazine (Oct 2010 issue), so I did what any good daughter would do – I swiped it!
There was an interesting article inside which listed the 7 best home cardio exercises. These are exercises that burn the most calories in a given amount of time.
For the record, I have no proof that these numbers are accurate or that these 7 exercises are the best calories blasters you can do at home.
However, they are all good and easy at home exercises so I am listing them here so you can work them into your workout routine any way you wish.
Best 7 Home Cardio Exercises
7. Walking vigorously
-burns 170 calories in 30 minutes
-burns 221 calories in 30 minutes
-burns 272 calories in 30 minutes
4. Hula hooping
-burns 300 calories in 30 minutes
3. Jumping rope
-burns 340 calories in 30 minutes
-burns 374 calories in 30 minutes
1. Inline skating
-burns 425 calories in 30 minutes
So there you have it. Remember, Health Magazine doesn’t actually reference where they got this data so take it with a grain of salt.
But I do guarantee that all of these home cardio exercises will be effective for burning away unwanted fat and calories.
Just make sure to add these activities to a good home workouts strength routine and eat less to burn the most fat.
