EXERCISE THAT WILL IMPROVE YOUR HEART HEALTH
1. Burpees: Begin by standing straight, move into a squat position with your hands touching the ground, kick your feet back to land on your toes while taking the push-up position. Hold for a second and return to the squatting position first to finally stand back up. Burpees, if done quickly, can boost your heart rate and heart health like nothing else will.
2. Sprinting: This one’s no rocket science, actually. Mark a short distance, say a 100 metres, and run as fast as you possibly can to-and-fro through the marked area. Take a break and get back to business. This can up your heart rate and promote blood circulation as well.
3. Hurdle jumps: As the name suggests, you can place hurdles like dumbbells, boxes, etc of different heights on the running track or the less-crowded area of your gym. The aim is to run through the distance while jumping over every hurdle to make your heart beat faster and also burn more calories in the process.
4. Jumping jacks: Start by standing straight with your palms facing your thighs. Jump up and widen your feet broader than your hip-width while bringing your arms above your head and palms nearly touching. Jump again while lowering your arms and bringing your legs together. Return to your starting position and repeat.
