Best 11 Cardio Exercises
1. Ab Crunches
Crunches are one of the most common exercises for your abdominal muscles. Similar to a sit-up, crunches involve lifting the upper body up off the floor or mat using your core. It’s important to not crunch so high that the exercise becomes a sit-up, because that will take emphasis off of your abdominals and onto your hip flexors.
The Mountain Climber is a bodyweight exercise that serve as a great full-body workout. This plyometric plank movement does it all: increases core strength, defines the shoulders, chest and upper back, works the quads and glutes -- all while raising the heart rate.
9. Bear Crawl
A Bear Crawl is a bodyweight mobility exercise that uses strength in the shoulders, quads and abdominal muscles. It appears very similar to a baby crawl but requires you to bear the weight on your hands and toes rather than your knees. A bear crawl is an excellent exercise in core control and focused breathing.
