10 Cardio Workouts Better Than The Treadmill

Totally tired of the treadmill? We don’t blame you! The treadmill can be a great way to get in your guaranteed calorie burn, but after a while both your brain and your body get bored. If cardio isn’t your thing, you could try MIC B12 injections which is used for fat burning purposes, but before turning to injections, we’ll show you the benefits of cardio workouts, all for free!

Spice up your indoor cardio sessions for better, faster results with these 5 free cardio workouts available on YouTube — you’ll work more muscles, burn more calories and beat boredom while you keep workin’ on your fitness:

#1: 1-Mile Power Walk

Squeeze in a quick mile with this indoor power walking workout that helps prevent joint strain by mixing up your moves while working out in a small space.

#2: 13-Minute Plyo HIIT

Short on time but really need to get the most bang for your workout buck? This quick, but effective circuit features plyometrics (or power) training moves to help improve your bone density, power, strength and agility, and not to mention, give you a greater calorie burn.

#2: 20-Minute Total Body Burn Fat Fast

Save your cash and skip the gym equipment – this workout can help you burn more calories than the treadmill and work tons more muscles in the process too.

#3: 20-Minute Calorie Crushing Cardio

Amp up your cardio routine with this fat blasting, metabolism boosting workout that is easy to do at home in a small space with no equipment.

#4: 25-Minute Cardio Boot Camp Boogie

This quick, efficient (and kinda fun!) cardio workout can be done with or without impact in a small space at home. And not to worry, this boot camp workout does NOT contain burpees, squat thrusts, or any floor work!

#5: 30-Minute HIIT Cardio + Core

Blast off fat AND work your abs with this two-in-one core calorie burning special! This high intensity interval cardio workout incorporates core toning in between moves to maximize your workout time and speed up results (lower impact options are shown).

#6: 30-Minute Cardio Ball Blast

Get ready to have a ball with this fun, 30-minute cardio session that mixes things up with the use of a small ball during the workout to amp up the moves and help you burn more calories in less time.

#7: 30-Minute Cardio Kickboxing Abs

Give belly fat a one-two punch with this cardio kickboxing abs workout! Blast off more calories by working more muscles at once with these core-centric kickboxing inspired moves!

#8: 30-Minute Low Impact “Quiet” Cardio

Cardio doesn’t have to mean loud, joint jarring moves! This non stop low impact card session keeps your heart rate up (and your downstairs neighbors happy) and is gentle enough to be done barefoot – but you’ll still work up a good sweat!

#9: 45-Minute Cardio Ball Ballet

Need a cardio workout that you’ll actually look forward to doing? Try this unique routine that is designed to help you burn fat without the impact (or shoes!).

#10: 60-Minute HIIT Mash Up

OK so this one offers more than just cardio – but if you want to blast off fat in a major way, try this non-stop, high intensity interval training strength circuit that’s designed to boost your metabolism around the clock so you’ll burn more calories even while you sleep!
