Ok this is jennaguirre.com and we are here with our home cardio exercises. So right now were in my living room. Were about to go outside to my backyard. So, we, I have my jump rope, my two discs, I’m going to teach you guys about these when we get outside. And my dumb bell just for sheer jumping purposes. I’m going to go outside. Ok so, basically you could do this in a garage if the weathers not nice, or you could do this outside if the weathers nice. Now here’s a little side note, a little tip.
Outside, there’s less chemicals inside the physical building. Even though its not in like a building that’s out, in the gym or in a house. There’s less chemicals in the air and it enhances your workout to do stuff outside. So your metabolism is faster, your calorie burn is better your oxygen consumption is better so I highly recommend, every chance you get, try and do everything outside. If the weathers nice, go do your cardio outside. Go for your jogging outside. Um, ok so basically you’re just going to pick a series of exercises, you’re going to watch these exercises. At home, cardio exercises that you can do, anywhere. Obviously in your house, that’s the whole point of this. So I am a huge tremendous fan of my tangled up jump rope.
And, so as I’m chatting I will get it all set. Now, you got these things right here. These are furniture movers that you could buy for like, four bucks. Home depot, big lots, any place. Or, you could use tile like I have in that room that we just came from. Or if you’re going to do it inside and you’ve got wood floors you could do it with socks or paper towels. You cant do it outside on the cement with a paper towel but you can use these. So basically what you’re going to do is, I’m a huge huge fan of interval style cardio. So what you’re going to do is, you’re going to go through intervals.
You’re gonna one and two minute intervals pushing yourself as hard as you possibly can. Of course, I’m about to flash you, my heart rate monitor, got my heart rate monitor on. Make sure my quality cardio is quality. And I am going to go ahead and turn it on. Boom boom boom. Turn it off, turn it back on. And now I’m going to warm myself up on my jump rope. Ok, so, you’re going to go for one and two minute intervals. Literally, do this jump rope every single day if you can.
Awesome cardio, calves, quads, hamstrings, shoulders, incredible shoulders. Everything that you possibly can. Just as good, just as many muscles are activated when you’re doing the jump rope as when you’re doing the treadmill so, or jogging for that matter, so warm yourself up practice everyday, get some criss crossing in. Get some double jumps in. Keep those arms close to the body. see? So here’s a little jump rope lesson. ok. So you’ll go for as fast as you possibly can, for one minute. Ok, you’re going to go right into lateral hopping right over my dumbbell or over anything that’s fairly high. And you’re going to go for one minute. You guys aren’t going to watch the whole entire thing, getting your heart rate up. Good.
My heart rate is above 140 right now. 154 whoo! 156. whoa one minutes done. Now I’m going to go ahead and go face down on my discs, and I’m going to do the mountain climbers. Now if you want to make this a little bit harder, you can go ahead get rid of one, and just do it with one leg on the ground. One minute one way and do one minute the other. Now, you wanna make sure that your hands, are right underneath your shoulders.
You wanna grab your other disc back and do it again. Go back into, grab something fairly heavy, hands are here and give yourself some jump, jumping jacks. Not Jane Fonda jumping jacks. Come on, were past that. We gotta take it to another level. Do a little split jump with it. Whoo heart rates at 164. Good. keep going go back into this. Come on lets see how high I can get it. 175 awesome. whoo, ok so we literally went from jump rope, high knees, mountain climbers, jumping jacks, back to the jump rope. So four, five, six, however many exercises. Think of anything that’s going to get you up there. Go around that, keeping your heart rate, a transition, look I’m still at 162.
Transition from one exercise to the other. No less, no more than five seconds. Literally, jump rope, boom, drop the jump rope, start hopping. So hope you guys like these things. 148. Still high. Let me know what you guys think. Do it, go nuts burn calories. five and six hundred calories. Keep the heart rate elevated. Get that heart stronger, that’s what its all about. Strong healthy heart, building stamina, burning calories. Oh what does that equal? oh, that equals results. Mmmhmm, it does. Alright, let me know what you guys thing. I hope you it. More to come.
