Exercise without gym or equipment?

Im looking to do some cardio. Not confident enough to go to a gym and workout in public and im a college student at home for the summer so i cant really buy any equipment due to space and money. Any suggestions for an exercise plan?

Re: Exercise without gym or equipment?

I like videos. Jillian Michael's "Ripped in 30" is a nice half hour program that incorporates resistance training, cardio and abdominal work and is nicely balanced. Beachbody's "Insanity" program is a very intense cardio workout. You can get just one disc called "Insanity Fast and Furious" that is a quick 20 minute workout if you're on a budget. I like Tabata and HIIT and both systems work really well.

Try doing some yoga. You don't need some equipment but you need a very comfortable place to do it and you can do this at home.

Re: Exercise without gym or equipment?

It is better if you enroll yourself in a gym. Choose a smaller gym so there is not too many people around.

Re: Exercise without gym or equipment?

I quit going to the gym some time ago, and now I started exercising at home with Jillian Michael's "Ripped in 30" video. Important is to set a schedule for it, the same way one should commit to going to the gym, and not skip the exercise.

Skipping Rope is the best.

I would actually recommend resistance training by using only a towel to pull on and also skipping rope. There are quite a few videos you can ******** off youtube pertaining to resistance training

Re: Exercise without gym or equipment?

you can try doing planks and finding ways to employ daily chores as cardio exercises and also 45 minutes a day of brisk walking and there is a video called "insane home fat loss".
