One minute Cardio Exercises
There are many benefits that come along with short workouts such as a simple 10 minute session of cardio, one of the many benefits being blood sugar control, not to mention improved cardiovascular health as well. There are many different cardio exercises that can be done in just one minute, and if you combine several of them to make a 10 minute workout, then you are well on your way to becoming healthy. Here are several great equipment-free cardio training exercises that you can do in a very limited amount of time.
A few things that you can do include choosing one move to repeat as much as you can until you can’t go anymore, and try each exercise for a total of one minute with as little rest in between as possible. Another great thing to do is to switch between high and low intensity cardio workouts, or even doing one exercise for a certain amount of time at a high intensity, and then doing the same exercise at a low intensity. A good thing to do is to do a whole variety of exercises to train as many muscles as possible.
1 minute Exercises That You Can Do
- High Knee March – For this exercise, stand up straight with your abs flexed, your shoulders relaxed, and your hands on your hips, then simply march in place and raise your knees as high as you can. Always make sure to not bend your back while doing this, also make sure to keep your hands on your hips.
- The V-Step – Start this exercise just as you would the high knee march, standing straight with your abs flexed and your hands at your side. Just picture, or even draw a V on the floor, and walk in that pattern. Move your left leg forward to the front of the V, and your right leg forward to the other front side of the V, so that your legs are spread, then move back to the point of the V. Repeat this exercise several times while making sure to alternate the foot that you step with first. If it gets too easy for you, try taking bigger steps.
- The Reverse Disco Step – tart out in the same position as the first two exercises, the only difference being that your feet need to be spread wider than your hips. Reach your left arm across your chest and reach for the sky, then pull that hand down across the front of the body, and at the same time, touch the heel of your left foot with the toes on your right foot. To make it harder you can always take bigger steps and move at a quicker pace. Always remember to switch sides when doing this.
