You can perform these moves anytime and anywhere. Below are the 6 moves which will help you burn fat and stay fit just like you do it in gym.
1. Mountain Climbers:
Mountain climbers try to simulate how your body would feel trying to climb up a mountain. In this position your hands should touch the ground with feet toes pointing to the ground as well. Your hands should be slightly ahead of your shoulders. Distribute your body weight evenly between hands and the toes of your feet. Bring your left foot from the ground to place it under chest. In this position your knee and hips are bent, and your thigh is towards your chest. Now lift your right knee above the ground making the right leg straight. Engaging the core, quickly switch legs, and keep this rhythm going for 15-20 reps.
2. Diver’s Pushups:
Starting with diver’s pushups you position should be like a down-dog yoga position, with your gaze on the floor and weight distributed between your arms. Now your hip should move towards the floor with chest rising up. Keep moving until your gaze gets towards the ceiling and your back gets straight.
3. Squat Jumps:
Start your squat jumps by having your heels planted firmly on the ground while bending your hips and knees, and making your thighs parallel to the floor. Keep your knees at an angle to your feet and hands straight in the direction of your thighs. Keep your gaze straight and then jump up immediately at the bottom of the squat and extend your arms overhead. Repeat this exercise for 15-20 reps.
4. Skater’s Lunges:
Stand straight, with your legs wider than your shoulder width and toes pointed forward. Duck down into an athletic position and slide to the left side in a lunge motion, keeping your hands on the left knee. Repeat the same thing for the right knee. Try doing this for like a minute or so.
5. Flutter Kicks:
Lie down with holding your head with hand support and keeping your head up. Extend your legs, then lift your heals off the floor about six inches. Keep kicking up and down changing legs and keep doing it for a minute.
6. Sprinter Sit-ups:
Lie down on your back with the legs extended, arms by your side, and elbows bent at 90-degrees. Now, sit up and bring the right knee towards the left elbow. Continue to alternate sides to really feel the heat. Perform this at your maximum speed for about fifteen to twenty reps.
