#5 – Burpees
Another classic exercise which is a no-gimmick, sure-fire winner in the no-nonsense home exercise armoury. It is a whole body conditioner and can develop strength, power and endurance, not to mention burn fat. Begin in the squat position but with your hands in front of you and then kick your feet back so that you end up in the press-up position. Immediately return to the start position before leaping up as high as you can with your arms extended above your head. If you want to add extra challenge, then after you have dropped down form the start point into the press-up position, actually perform a press-up before returning to the squat position. Be warned: this will seriously get your heart pumping hard if you do enough of them!
