Can't go to the gym? Opt for this cardio workout at home instead!

No matter how devoted you are to gym time, there will be days when you just won't feel like getting out of bed and heading to the gym for your workout. But that doesn't mean you should just skip your workout session for that day. There are so many exercises you can opt for right at your place. So, if you're planning on not heading to the gym, here are some cardio workout exercises you can opt for from the comfort of your house. Plus, they only take ten minutes to do.


02/5Squat thrust

Squat thrust

For this, you'll have to stand straight with your feet hip-width apart. Keeping your core engaged, move into a squat position. Then, place your palms on the floor and jump into the high plank position by pushing your feet behind. Make sure your back and legs are straight. Then hop back into the squat position and stand back up. Do 2 X 10.


03/5Forearm plank reach out

Forearm plank reach out

Begin by getting into the forearm plank position. Keeping the rest of your body straight, take your right arm and stretch it forward. Keep still for a few seconds and then repeat this with your left arm. Do it for a good 30 seconds at least.


04/5Plank hip dip

Plank hip dip

This one is a bit easier as compared to the other ones on the list but it engages your core just as much. Get into the forearm plank position and then slowly tilt your body to the left and then to the right. Keep alternating from one side to the other with your hips slightly arched. Do 2 X 20.


05/5Lateral lunge to single hop

Lateral lunge to single hop

Stand straight with your legs hip-width apart. Slowly take a big step with your right foot and bend your right knee while keeping your left leg straight thus ending in a lateral lunge. Start standing again and bring your right foot at its original position. Do a hop using your left leg while keeping your right foot above the ground and when you land immediately go back into the lateral lunge position. Repeat this on the other side. Do 2 X 10.
