Simple 15-minute routine to burn calories at home

There is no doubt that exercise is important to be fit and feel good. However, sometimes it can be really difficult to make time to go to the gym or to do an activity outside the home.

Therefore, a good option to lose some calories is to exercise at home. It is true that it can be less effective than a gym routine. But think about it: if you do 15 minutes of exercise every day, you will have done more than an hour and a half of exercise a week, almost without realizing it.

It's much better than doing nothing, do not you think?

To cheer up, put your favorite playlist and start today. This routine is specially designed to work the whole body and is very effective in a short time. After barely a week, the results will be evident.

1. Iron with knee lift

The iron is one of the simplest exercises to perform at home, because you do not need anything more than your own body. But it is also one of the most powerful. It has incalculable benefits!

What this 15-minute routine proposes is a variation, which includes movement. To do this, support the elbows on the floor and put on the ironing position. Hold for a few seconds, and then flex the left knee towards the left elbow.

Return to the starting position and alternate both legs. Repeat 12 times.

2. Jumps up and to the side

Jumping is another great exercise to burn calories: with very few repetitions great results are obtained.

In this case, you will help with your arms. Flex your knees slightly, as if you were doing a squat. In that position, take momentum and jump up and to the side. Use the arms to accompany the movement, so that the impulse of your body increases.

Finish in the starting position and jump again. Repeat 12 times.


In this case, you should stand with your legs spread, more or less at a distance from your shoulders.

Flex your legs slightly and stretch your arms forward, so that they are above the knees, at chest level.

From that position, jump and raise your knees as high as you can to your chest. Return to the original position and repeat 12 times.
