But, the cold outside is the excuse we come up with in winters. Not anymore!

Walk stairs of your home…Walk up and down often till you don’t feel the burn. If your home doesn’t have stairs, then walk throughout your home in order to be active. More you will stay in motion, more calories will burn.  To tell you, it’s one of the best aerobic workouts as it put your legs muscles and upper body part in motion.

It is a great way to warm up your body for a good workout. Around fifty jumping jacks are enough if you own a good shape. Otherwise, start slow with twenty or less jumping jacks. If required, you may break your jumping jacks into sets.
