4 Equipment-Free Indoor Cardio Workouts For Small Spaces

If you don't have a gym membership, fitting in cardio can be difficult when hot, humid weather means you can't exercise outside. Enter high-intensity interval workouts, which help you burn calories in less time and space. Here are four ways to torch calories in a small space, no equipment necessary!

  1. Squats and push-ups: These simple moves are also some of the most effective strength-training exercises you should master. Doing both in a Tabata-style workout — that is, 20 seconds of high-intensity intervals followed by 10 seconds of rest, continuously for four minutes — offers a time-saving workout that tones and burns fat all at once. This eight-minute Tabata mashup workout video of squats and push-ups will work arms and legs in any small space.
  2. Tabata workout poster: Keep this on your fridge and you'll never have an excuse to skip a workout. The workout includes six Tabata intervals of exercises that focus on every type of exercise for a total-body workout. From jumping jacks to planks to bicycle crunches, get the entire Tabata printable indoor workout here.
  3. Gym-style interval workout: Bored by your normal living room workout routine? This interval workout routine features eight different moves that will work your entire body and leave you satisfyingly sweaty.
  4. Do-anywhere workout: Here's a simple body-weight workout that's broken up into two short circuits of exercises like squats, lunges, and push-ups. Do these intervals at high intensity for a cardio boost, and repeat five times for an effective workout in about 20 minutes.
