The Best Fat-Burning Exercises for at Home and the Gym

Jumping Jacks

Assume a standing posture and keep your arms by your sides. Lean your knees slightly and spread your legs slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Extend your arms above your head simultaneously.


Place the soles of your feet shoulder-width apart. Jump your feet back to land in a plank position after lowering your body into a squat and placing your hands on the ground in front of your feet in one smooth motion.

Squat Jumps

Step down into a squat with your feet shoulder-width apart. Your upper body and back should remain raised, while your hips and butt should descend to the floor like you're sitting in a chair. Maintain a rigid core as you leap with force.

Skater Jumps

Place the soles of your shoes hip-width apart. Plant your right foot and, almost like you're doing a curtsy lunge, cross your left leg behind you and out to your right side. Your right leg should be the one bearing your weight.

Plank Jacks

Start in a plank position, with your body extended straight behind you and your wrists parallel to your shoulders. With your feet firmly planted on the ground. Quickly jump your legs back together after extending them wide.

High Knees

While standing, bring your left knee up to meet your chest. In a quick motion, switch your legs so that your right knee is now drawn into your chest. Maintain a continuous gait while alternating your knees.
