The most popular machines in any gym are the elliptical, stationary bikes and treadmills. Why? I think it's because they tell you the amount of calories you burn. For your information – you do not need a machine to burn so many calories!
Get the best results with these 5 exercises when burning calories and beating multiple muscles at the same time. The best way to do it is without a machine at home. All calorie estimates are for a person weighing 155 pounds.
1. Plank resistance (with towel). Get into a plank position, with your hands right under your shoulders, with your abdominals and flat back. You also want to put a small towel under each foot. Pull your body from one side of the room to the other on a hardwood or linoleum floor and pull your body weight by moving your arms with your arms. A round trip through the room counts as a round. Repeat this three times. For details, see the picture.

2. Burpees. Burpees are the ideal full-body workout. Get into your plank position and jump with your knees in the direction of your chest. Now jump up, raise your arms up in the air above your head and point your toes out. When you land, return to the knee position on the chest and kick back with your legs. This is INTENSE – do as many as you can during the day.
