Aerobic exercise, or “oxygenation,” improves cardiovascular fitness. Cardiovascular activity should be done for at least 30 minutes five to seven days a week. Don’t forget to warm up, cool down and stretch after your aerobic exercise.

Aerobic exercise does not require a lot of equipment. Alternatively, people can exercise their body weight while doing cardio exercises at home. People can choose exercises based on their fitness level at the moment. They may also go for more challenging exercises as their fitness levels rise.

Trying to stay active in the winter, especially, can seem daunting. Keep reading as we share ways you can practice this indoors. These exercises are effective and easy to perform aerobic exercises that can be done indoors.

Here are aerobic exercises you can do indoors:

1. Jump

In order to perform an aerial jump rope, the jump rope must metaphorically “swing” through the air. The exercise is a good alternative to stationary jogging and works well as a warm-up. To perform, stand with your feet together while jumping up and down and moving your arms.

2. Jogging in place

A quick and effective exercise to raise your heart rate is jogging in place. This is a good warm-up exercise for beginners. Gently jump from one foot to the other to achieve this. Swing your arms side to side at the same time.

3. Jumping jacks

A starting cardiovascular exercise that can be done practically anywhere is jumping jacks. By jumping higher or faster, one can raise the intensity of the exercise. In addition, they can reduce stress by doing jumping jacks that are slower or shorter.

4. Mountain climbers

The mountain climber is a challenging all-body exercise. If you haven’t moved before, start slowly and speed up your pace over time. Start in a plank position with your torso straight and your hands under your shoulders. Brace your core and stretch your back. Raise your right knee close to your chest. Alternate quickly by lifting your left knee and swinging your right knee out.

5. Jump rope

Aerial bungee jumping at the beginning of your workout becomes even more challenging when you go for real bungee jumping at home. You can switch between jumping with both feet and jumping from one foot to the other. Although this exercise requires very cheap equipment.

6. Torso rotation

The torso rotation works the abdominal muscles and puts the core to the test. To do this, stand with your elbows at your sides and a heavy object at chest height. Rotate to one side and then the other, starting at the torso. In addition, one can roll from side to side while holding the arms at shoulder height.

7. Stairs

Repeatedly going up and down stairs can be included in the exercise. The pressure on the core and leg muscles can be increased by going up two steps at a time and accelerating the running pace. You can do this on or around the stairs in your home. You can also buy a step.

Add these aerobic exercises to your daily routine this winter to keep your overall health in check.
