Jumping Jacks are a basic calisthenics workout. Calisthenics is a gymnastic exercise for fitness and flexibility.     

If you’re looking for a quick, effective exercise that will help you burn fat and get your heart rate up, jumping jacks are a perfect choice. They’re also easy to do anywhere, in your living room, on the beach, or even in the office break room!    

They work like a compound workout, targeting and activating the most primary muscles. This gives you an intense cardiovascular workout in just a few minutes.

They are mostly done during warm-ups or tucked in as a part of circuit training.

How to do

•      To perform Jumping Jacks, start in a standing position with your legs together and arms by your side. 

•      From here, jump your legs out wide and raise your arms above your head, then jump back into the starting position. 

2.  High Knees

High Knees 1
Burn Fat Fast: Full-Body Fat-Blasting Under 20-Minute Tabata Workout - Episode 10 21

The high knees exercise has long been a staple in warm-up routines, and for good reason. Doing high knees in place will get your heart pumping and your legs warm and prepped for whatever your workout has in store. It works your glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves.    

High Knees exercise is one of the best exercises for burning fat. It is great for increasing stamina, reducing stress, and improving your overall health.

This exercise helps you to burn more fat and calories by increasing your heart rate. It also strengthens your leg muscles, which are important for all types of activities including sports and everyday life.

How to do

•      Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart and your arms at your sides.

•      Lift your right knee as high as you can (but at least to hip level) while simultaneously bending your left elbow and raising your left arm in a running motion.

•      Now quickly switch arms and legs, running in place.

3.  Jump Squats

Jump Squats
Burn Fat Fast: Full-Body Fat-Blasting Under 20-Minute Tabata Workout - Episode 10 22

Jump squats are one of the best exercises you can do to burn fat and sculpt your body. It’s a high-intensity workout that will kick your butt, but you’ll be happy you did it when you see the results!

Jump squats are an exercise that involves squatting down and then jumping up from a standing position. This exercise is great for building muscle in your legs, improving cardiovascular health, and burning fat.

How to do it:

•      Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and start by doing a regular squat.

•      Remember to engage your core, keep your chest high, and try to get your butt at least parallel to the floor. 

•      Next, use the muscles in your legs to jump up explosively into the air, using your arms to drive you up. 

•      When you land, lower your body straight back down into the starting squat position, ready for your next rep. 

•      Land in a controlled way, as quietly as possible.

4.  Mountain Climbers

Mountain Climbers 2
Burn Fat Fast: Full-Body Fat-Blasting Under 20-Minute Tabata Workout - Episode 10 23

Mountain climbers are great for building cardio endurance, core strength, and agility. You work several different muscle groups with mountain climbers. As you perform the move, your shoulders, arms, and chest work to stabilize your upper body while your core stabilizes the rest of your body. As the prime mover, your quads get an incredible workout, too. 

How to do it:

•      Start in a high plank position (similar to a press-up position), making sure your shoulders are over your hands, your hips are down, and your weight is on just your toes. 

•      With your core engaged, bring your right knee forward towards your chest, lifting the toe off the ground. 

•      Return to your plank, then switch legs to bring the left knee forward.

•      Keep switching legs and begin to pick up the pace until it feels a little like running in a plank position.

The Downward Dog Push-Ups exercise is a great way to burn fat and tone your arms, legs, and core. It’s also a good balance exercise that can help you maintain good posture and prevent injury.

Looking for a total body exercise that stretches and strengthens? Try the down dog push-up. This exercise tones your upper and lower body while loosening up your hips and hamstrings.

How to do it

•      Begin in push-up or plank position, engage the abdominals and low back, and lengthen the neck to create a long line from the top of the head to the base of the pelvis.

•      Push your pelvis up and back, hinging at the hip joints while dropping and widening the shoulders.

•      Pay attention to your spine and only bend the hips as far as the hamstrings allow without pulling on the pelvis and spine. You can slightly bend your knees to access a deeper fold in the hips.

•      While holding the stable position of the hips and legs, bend the arms and shoulders to lower your head toward a spot between the hands and then push back into the stretch of the hips and hamstrings.

6.  Superman Lateral Pull

•      To begin the exercise, you need to place your hands on a chair, on a bench at least shoulder-width apart. Now you have to slide off your butt off the bench and extend your legs out.

•      Now you have to straighten your arms while keeping your elbows a bit bent to keep tension on your triceps and not on your elbow joints.

•      Now start bending your elbows to bring your body towards the floor and bend it until they’re at 90

degrees with the bench. Make sure you keep your back close to the bench.

•      Now when you reach the bottom, start pressing down into the bench while straightening your elbows to get back into your original position.

The main goal of doing crunches is to engage your abdominal muscles, helping you achieve a stronger and more stabilized core. As compared to other crunch variations, the butterfly crunch is the only one that will give you a total body workout.

This is because it will not just engage your abdominal muscles—it targets your leg muscle as well. In addition to that, the spreading out of the knees will make it difficult for you to keep your spine flat so it can also help engage your rectus abdominal muscles too.

How to do it

•      Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor placed as close to your buttocks as possible.

•      Let your legs fall open, just like the look of butterfly wings.

•      Bring your feet close to each other. The soles should be in contact with each other.

•      Place hands behind your head. It should be in line with your ears and elbows. Never clasp your hands as this will increase your risk of having an injury.

•      Engage your abdominal muscles and slowly and gently lift your shoulders from the floor by a few inches. But try to keep your back as flat as possible.

•      Slowly go back to your starting position.
