Cool down and stretch


This routine is a great addition to a cardio workout. In order to burn the most calories, do 20 minutes of cardio before doing this program, and 20 additional minutes after. This way, you won't be overly tired when you do the strength training/toning component of your program. Do this routine 2-3 times a week (ideally with a day of rest in between-alternating with upper body strength training is a great way to give the legs and glutes a “rest”, for example).

All of the exercises in this home workout routine involve large muscle groups. The good news is that this means that you can burn a significant amount of calories when you add this program to your regular exercise plan. This also means that you need to be diligent about a cool down and a stretching regime to keep strains and tightness of muscles at bay.
