Grab A Friend & Try This Fun At-Home Cardio Workout

By Christine McMichael July 1, 2016

Whether you’re dealing with bad weather or just don’t really feel like leaving the house, this At-Home Cardio Workout is here to save the day!

While I’m proud to say that I’ve been killing the Equipment-Free 30-Minute Total Body Workout and the Beach-Ready Total-Body Workout (I like to mix these throughout the week), rainy days and working late into the evenings has had me choosing Strawberry Chia Seed Popsicles over getting out and getting my heart rate up.

Tip: Make this workout a million times more fun by doing it with a friend! And as always, be sure to let me know what you think of the workout by tagging #JarOfLemons or sending me a snap (jaroflemons)!

1. Jumping Jacks

Jump from a standing position to a wide-leg position, raising arms overhead through the jump.

2. Mountain Climbers

Starting in plank, bring right leg into chest. Repeat on the other leg, alternating sides.

3. Side Lunge Jumps

Jump into a right leg lunge, deepening the lunge upon landing and ensuring the knee never goes over the toes. Repeat on left side, alternating.

4. Burpees

Starting in plank, jump legs towards the chest into a frog position. From there, use legs to jump straight up. Go back into frog, and jump legs back out to plank.

5. High Knees

Alternating sides, bring knees towards the chest while jogging in place.

6. Squat Jumps

Starting in a low squat, jump straight up (raising the arms), and return to starting position.

7. Toe Touches

Starting in a reverse tabletop position, reach one arm up and touch the opposite toe. Alternate sides.

8. Butt Kicks

While jogging in place, bring heel as close to the glute as possible.
