Best Cardio Exercise to Lose Weight That You Can Do at Home
Let’s admit it right now: doing “cardio” can be very boring and time consuming. Well, I am going to give you a new cardio workout that you can do at home, or anywhere else as a matter of fact.
Now keep reading for a second and find out why this could help you achieve your weight loss goals much quicker than traditional cardio. First of all, if you haven’t jumped rope since you were a little kid, it’s harder than you might think. If you don’t believe me, try jumping rope for a minute straight and then let’s see how hard you’re breathing.
Go ahead, I’ll wait . . .
Second, you can literally do this anywhere: at home, on vacation, outside, at the gym, etc.
Third, you can perform this workout is much less time than a traditional cardio workout and get better results.
Give these jump rope workouts a try, and you’ll be on your way to losing weight fast.

If you get tired of doing the same old two foot jump, here are some variations to keep things more interesting.
– Double unders: swing the rope around two times for every one jump
– Single leg hops: just hop on one leg, and then switch
– Twists: as you do a standard jump, just rotate your hips from side to side
– Side to side hops: as you do standard jumps, just hop from side to side
– High knees: alternate bringing your knees up to your chest
– Butt kicks: alternate kicking your heels up to your butt
Give those workouts a try. They will take a fraction of the time a traditional cardio workout would, and the results will come much faster.
