1. Skipping

No need to join a gym when you can even reach your health goals by simply jumping the rope from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a Jumping rope, free space, and little inspiration. Heavy and complicated equipment does not always guarantee a toned body. Jumping to stay in shape is not fresh, even the best athletes in the world are doing it because it's an incredible way to exercise.

Benefits of Skipping

Burn Calories

Rope jumping for a certain amount of time and at a certain rate on a regular basis can also help you lose calories. To stimulate the muscles and burn more calories, perform short sets of high-intensity intervals.

Toning Body Muscles

Another advantage of the jumping rope is that it can be used to tone the body. Jumping rope can also help you to develop your muscles over time to tone muscles in the upper body and the muscles of the legs and lower body. Leg pain may occur after the first day because of the muscles that have been inactive for a long period. Give them a few days to heal, and as you continue your routine, your muscles will get stronger and more conditioned.

Weight Loss

Skipping rope is a perfect weight-loss weapon, which is one of its key advantages. You will burn around 200 calories by jumping the rope for 20 minutes. Thus to lose one pound a week, you must regularly do skipping for 40 minutes and remove 400 calories from your diet. While it will seem daunting at first, this will be the most effective way to start the weight loss journey.

2. AB Wheel

We love working those low-tech but high effect AB wheels that have been around for a long time and that's for one simple reason - they work. Consisting of a small wheel and an axel which acts as a handle AB wheels are used for performing roll out ab exercise, that are very effective as well as being great for your abs. 

You only need an AB Roller Wheel to start with the body toning workout.

Benefits of Ab Wheel Workouts

Increase your strength

AB wheel exercises work your whole body, including your arms, elbows, upper back, lower back, legs, and thighs, in addition to your abdominal muscles. That's indeed a truly efficient whole-body exercise!

Increase your core stability

A core is a word that refers to all of the muscles in your midsection. You will build a solid core with an AB wheel workout. A solid core will help you maintain your spine in the proper position and avoid unnecessary back movement, reducing the risk of back injury and improving your posture.

Decrease your potential for back pain

Weak AB can cause non-specific back pain that is not caused by an intrinsic or extrinsic injury, but rather by muscles that are unable to keep the spinal column aligned and functioning properly. You should strengthen your abdominals with an AB wheel workout so that they can keep your spine working smoothly and keep you free of back pain.

Enhance your sporting performance

Sports like running, kicking, jumping, throwing and punching require a strong core and you can get that with ab wheel workouts. These workouts are so effective in developing strength and core stability that they will lead to improved sporting performance.

Unlike crunches and sit-ups, the AB wheel workout target various muscles and joints to enhance inter and intramuscular coordination. It also enhances your mobility and flexibility when performing or carrying out an ab rollout.

3. Cyr Wheel Workout

Another famous exercise is using the Cyr wheel workout. The wheel is simply a big metal ring that spins gyroscopically as the user spins it. It's also known as the 'mono wheel' or the 'Roue Cyr' in various parts of the world. To begin, pick a wheel that fits your size and stand in the center of it with your arms at 10 and 2 o'clock.

You must use momentum to make it spin, so begin with a body flick and then push downwards to gain momentum. The trick is to keep the wheel balanced while maintaining speed. The first few steps are extremely slow. Begin by balancing and spinning two or three times. 

Safety guards, such as knee and elbow guards, handguards, and a helmet are highly recommended during initial times when learning. 

To avoid feeling dizzy after the exercise it is recommended to maintain the focal point while exercising.
