The cardio exercises on this page are great for building your heart and lung capacity, as well as, your physical stamina.
You’ll find the following Exercises on this page:
Knee to Elbow Lifts
Lateral Hurdle Jumps
Begin in an upright stance with feet shoulder width apart or slightly narrower.
Start off doing a squat.
As you begin to stand up, in one motion, swing your arms forward and do a small, quick jump backwards.
Then do another small, quick jump forward and begin another squat.
Repeat the motion without pausing..
Begin in a push up position, keeping your arms straight.
With your palms flat on the floor, begin to run in place. Attempt to keep your core as still as possible.
Begin in an upright standing position with your arms at your side. Your feet should be slightly smaller that shoulder width apart.
In one continuous motion jump with your feet spreading apart and your arms moving outwardly from your hips directly over your head to the point where your hands make contact.
Jump back to your original position and do it continuously.
Knee to Elbow Lift
Begin with your feet shoulder width apart and your elbows at shoulder height. Bend your elbows in a 90 degree position with your forearms pointing upwards.
Take your right knee and bring it towards your right elbow (if you can touch in great, but don’t strain yourself).
Repeat with the left knee.
*When doing this correctly, it should be one continuous motion with a small skip included between each knee lift. Try not to pause.
There are a number of ways to approach this. These can be fun, fat burning, cardio exercises. When doing any of the following combinations, be careful not to strain your elbows or shoulders.
The following exercises assume the person is right handed. If you are left handed, simply reverse the hands described below.
Start with your left foot slightly ahead of your right foot. Begin alternating punches in the air starting with your left (the jab) and then right (the cross).
A full repetition is a jab then cross. Do anywhere from 25 to 100 reps or more.
Start with a similar stance in the jab/cross (your feet can be slightly wider apart) simply start with your left hand and throw a hook punch followed by a hook punch with your right hand.
A full repetition is a left then right hook. Do anywhere from 25 to 100 reps or more.
Left/Right Upper Cuts
Start with your left foot slightly ahead of your right with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders. Have a good bend in your knees.
Throw a left upper cut by slightly dipping your left shoulder and turning your torso slightly clockwise as you are throwing the left upper cut.
Do the same with the right upper cut where you slightly dip your right shoulder and turn your torso counterclockwise as you are throwing the upper cut.
A full repetition is a left then right upper cut. Do anywhere from 25 to 100 reps or more.
*Once you are comfortable with these basic combinations, have fun with them. Create your own combinations with the different punches.
*Also, doing these against a punching bag will burn more calories and add to your muscular endurance.
This is a fantastic cardio exercise. A few things to remember when performing this:
The higher you jump the more energy you consume
If possible, avoid doing it on cement. It wears on your knees. Try and find a softer or springier surface.
Weighted jump ropes can add to your upper body muscular endurance
Step Ups on a Chair/Bed
Begin by finding a chair and stabilizing it against something so it can support your weight and if a chair is too unstable try your bed.
Start with your left foot and step up on your chair/bed. Bring your right knee towards chest as high as you can without straining yourself (note: your right foot should not touch your chair/bed).
Bring your right foot back down to the floor followed by the left foot.
Repeat the motion alternating the left and right feet.
Begin with feet shoulder width apart and hands at your side.
Start doing a squat – remember to keep your back straight and bend with your knees.
Then from the squatting position explode upwards into a jump. Swing your hands above your head as you do this (careful not to hit the ceiling with your hands and/or head). If the ceiling is to low, don’t swing your hands.
Begin with your feet shoulder width apart.
Start doing a squat and as you are doing the squat place your hands on the floor until you are in a tuck position.
From the tuck position thrust your feet backwards until you are in the push up position.
Then jump back to the tuck position.
From the tuck position stand straight up and then repeat the exercise.
*When doing this cardio exercise correctly, you should go from standing upright, to a tuck, to a push up position, back to a tuck, then back to standing upright. Try not to pause.
Begin standing upright with your feet shoulder width apart.
Simply jump in the air with your knees moving towards your chest.
*When this is done correctly, you should be in a tuck-like position, while in the air.
Lateral Hurdle Jumps
Grab an object you can jump over easily (a cushion or pillow works great).
Place the object on the ground and stand next to it.
Jump laterally (side-to-side) over the item, landing on both feet and then jumping back over.
Although it may seem strange to talk about how to gain weight as we approach the holidays (where people typically gain weight without trying very hard), the simple fact is that, for athletes and bodybuilders, the winter (when it’s cold outside and you’re covered up) has always been one of the primary times that trainees [...]

To me, there’s nothing more useful or yummy than an awesome protein bar. This one doesn’t just taste great – it’s also loaded with healthy ingredients, including almond meal, whey protein powder, cinnamon, egg whites and fat-free cottage cheese. I love bars because they’re not only a great stay-at-home snack but also the perfect grab-and-go [...]
