Alternating split lunges (2 x 15 reps)
Alternating split lunges are a challenging exercise that require a lot more strength and agility as compared to regular lunges. When it comes to bodyweight exercises split lunges are your best bet to work on the quadriceps and the glute muscles of the lower body. Start by keeping your feet at shoulder width distance and right leg extended ahead of you in a split lunge position. Keeping your back straight and shoulders pulled back, jump by extending your left leg and bringing down your lower body with full control. Do all this while maintaining a 90 degree angle at both the knees. In this manner repeat the action for a set of 2 with 15 reps for each leg.
Burpees ( 10 reps)
The burpee is one of the best exercises to burn fat. Studies have shown that an high intensity exercise like the burpee burns upto 50% more fat than conventional strength training exercises. They are also known to spike up your metabolism, resulting in more calorie burn. Begin in a squat position with hands extended on the floor in front of you. Next, you kick your feet back to a pushup position and immediately return your feet back to the squat position. Leap as high as you can from the squat with your arms stretched towards the ceiling. Maintain the fluidity of the burpee and perform a set of 10 repetitions.
Diamond Pushup ( 2 x 10 reps)
The diamond pushup targets the triceps, chest, part of the deltoids, as well as the abs. By modifying the classic pushup this move shifts the pressure of the lift onto the triceps, while also engaging and activating core muscles in the abs, and strengthening the upper chest and shoulders.Begin in your regular pushup position. Flatten your palms to form a diamond shape with the thumbs and forefingers.Lower yourself into a pushup position.Ensure that your back remains straight throughout. When you feel the chest touching your hands, hold the pose for a few seconds. Then slowly push yourself back up by extending your elbows. Attempt for 8-10 slow repetitions on your first few tries, or till you get the form right.
Standing Long Jump ( 15 reps)
Although this exercise is used by athletes to boost leg power, the standing long jump can also engage your entire body to burn calories. This drill is best done in sand or other soft landing surface. Start by standing in a partial squat stance with feet shoulder width apart. Now prepare yourself to take a leap by utilizing your big arm swing and a upward movement of the legs, and jump forward as far as you can. Try and regain your balance by attempting to land on your feet at a farther distance. Remember to wear cushioned trainers as this can put some strain on your knees. Do a set of 15 repetitions.
