Ready to get an intense cardio workout in just a few minutes? Try this cardio jumping workout on for size!
If you’ve ever done a few sets of jumping jacks, you know how quickly this form of exercise can elevate your heart rate and heat up the body. In fact, jumping is one of the most cardiovascular-intensive exercises, which is why it’s a great addition to home cardio workouts. Since it is also a bodyweight exercise, you can do it anywhere, anytime, with no special equipment required! (If you really wanted to, you could add some hand or ankle weights, but most people shouldn’t need to.)
Because jumping is such an intense form of exercise, you can get a full workout in just a few minutes, as shown in the video below.
Please be aware that this is an intense workout, so be sure to consult with your doctor first if you have any health conditions or are at a low fitness level. Beginners or those looking for a lower-impact form of exercise can follow the low-impact modifications shown in the video.
