Rebecca Spera has tips to help you rock your core and get your cardio workout in. (KTRK)

With summer right around the corner, you probably want to work your core and get your cardio in -- so why not do it at the same time?! Orangetheory Fitness coach Robert Aguirre shared the following exercises that will burn calories, improve posture and tone midriff:

Plank jacks - Lower into a plank position on your elbows. Jump your feet out and in, doing a jumping jack on the floor. Beginners can walk their legs in and out.

Speed skater lunges - Lift one knee up with foot off the ground, squat down with the standing leg and jump laterally to the side. Repeat on the other side, going back and forth. The lower you get and the higher you jump, the harder it is! You can also walk it for a lower-intensity workout.

Atomic mountain climbers - Get into a plank position on your hands and bring one knee in and to the opposite side. Bring the other knee in to the opposite side and repeat.

Burpee - Squat down, put your hands on the ground in front of you in push up position and jump or walk your feet out into a plank position. Jump or walk your feet back in and stand or jump up.

Running man - Get down into a plank position with your hands on the ground and run your feet into your knees.
