Skipped your morning run yet again because it’s raining outside? Don’t let the monsoon be an excuse to miss your fitness goals. We’ll help you stay on track with these indoor workouts that burn major calories. Do these sets for 30 minutes every day and you won’t miss the outdoors.
1. 50 Jumping jacks
Jumping Jacks are a great way to warm up your body before your workout. Stand with your feet together and hands on the side. Now jump and spread your arms and legs. Bring them back on the second jump. Do sets of 50 to get oxygen flowing in your body.
2. 100 Steppings
Use your steps for toning your legs and butt. Jog up and down one step for 15 minutes. Don’t go running on the entire staircase as it may strain your knees.
3. 100 Spot jogging
Another warm-up routine that will prepare your muscles for stretching. Spot jogging is a good cardio exercise and also strengthens the heart and lungs.
4. 50 Lunges
Now you are ready for stretching. Start with 50 lunges to tone your upper thighs. Stand with your feet together and take a big step forward with your right foot. Now bend your right knee and bring your body forward while keeping the left foot steady. Repeat 25 times on each side.
5. 25-30 Calf raises
Stand with your feet together and lift your body supported by just your toes. This is a great exercise to get shapely calves.
6. 50 Leg lifts
Lie down on a mat with arms to your side and legs together. Now raise your legs while keeping your entire body steady. Hold that position for 5 seconds and bring the legs down. This exercise is great for burning thigh fat.
7. 25 Yoga push-ups
Yoga push-ups are considered better for the joints and give you more muscle engagement. The key difference between a normal push up and this is that your arms are closer to your body here. Start in a plank position placing your hands directly under your chest. Now lift your upper body till your elbows reach your rib cage. Bring down your body slowly and repeat 25 times. This will strengthen your upper arms.
