Planking at home? Or doing weights in the gym? Which one is better? Working out at a gym gives you access to many exercise equipment, while working out at home gives you the privilege of convenience. It all boils down to personal preference. Some of us may feel that working out at the gym is uncomfortable because we are uncomfortable with people around us while working out. Some may find it a hassle to travel down to the gym.

For those who prefer to workout at home for convenience and flexibility, here are 5 simple fat burning home workouts.

1. Jump Lunges

Jump lunges help to target the thigh muscle, hamstring and glutes. You will also be engaging muscles that stabilise your core and hips. This exercise is also performed when you want to achieve a bigger and rounder butt.

Say hello to that booty.

  • How to do it: 

Step forward with your leg into a basic lunge. Your left knee should be in line with your left foot and your right leg extended back with just the toes of your right foot touching the floor.

Jump into the air and as you do, switch leg positions so that you land with your right foot forward and the left leg extended back. The deeper your land, the more you work the muscles.

2. Jackknife Crunches

The Jackknife Crunches are also known as the V-ups. It is a different variation of crunches except that you work your body to achieve the ‘V’ shape. It is also an exercise to work your entire core to get rid of your fats around your stomach.

V-ups target the abdominal muscles, tone down the obliques, strengthen your back muscles and challenge the entire core. Moreover, it works on your quadriceps and hamstrings at the same time.

  • How to do it: 

Lie down flat on your back with your shoulder blades back, lower back pushed into the floor and abs tight. Make sure your legs are straight. Keep your arms extended straight overhead.

Now lift your legs and arms at the same time. Keep your legs straight and lift as high as you can. Try to touch your toes with your fingers.

3. Burpees

  • How to do it: 

From a standing position, drop into a squat with your hands on the ground just in front of your feet. Then kick your feet back behind you, keeping your arms extended so you are in a raised plank position. At this point, drop a push-up into the mix, then get back up.
