4 Soft Cardio Exercises for your Off Days

If you’re like me, then you need to do something every day. However, it’s not a good idea to Perform a hard Workout every single day. So, why not mix it up with a soft cardio workout in between a tough workout?

What is Soft Cardio?

Soft cardio, also known as low impact cardio is cardio that is easy on the joints. If you have knee or joint problems like myself, then you need to perform movements that are tough on the heart, but easy on the joints.

The following are 4 exercises you can do on your off days to help you burn more fat:

Crawl Pushups

Squat down and place your hands on the floor in front of your knees. Walk your hands forward, straightening out your body until you are in a pushup position. Perform a pushup. Walk your hands back.

Kettlebell or Dumbbell Swings

Grab a Kettlebell or Dumbbell with both hands and start with a wide stance. Begin the movement with the Kettlebell between your legs. Make sure to keep the back straight. Snap your hips forward, forcing the Kettlebell to swing forward in front of your body. Straighten out your body, then quickly reverse the movement to starting position.

Front Kick Plank

Stand with one foot in front of the other in a fighting stance. Bring the back leg forward and perform and front kick. Now step back, and drop into pushup position. Quickly get back up and repeat. Perform all reps on one side before performing the other side.

Medicine Ball Squat with Overhead Press

Grab a Medicine ball and hold it in front of your chest. Squat down and touch the ball to the floor. Stand up and press the ball over your head. Repeat.

The Workout

Now lets organize these movements into a fat burning workout. Perform the movements in a circuit. Start off with 5 rounds, then work your way up to 10 rounds:

  • 10 Crawl Pushups
  • 10 Kettlebel or Dumbbell Swings
  • 10 Front Kick Planks
  • 10 Medicine Ball Squat with Overhead Presses

Once you are able to perform 10 rounds, then you want to move on to tougher cardio workouts. I recommend these 31 amazing Interval Cardio workouts that are easy on your joints. Click here to learn more!
