Whatever cardio option you choose, whether it cycling, swimming, running etc. apply HIIT, High Intensity Interval Training strategy to the workout. HIIT simply means dividing the session into intervals of high and low work rate.
A typical pattern would be, 1 minute high intensity followed by 2 minutes of low intensity training. The constant flux keeps the body from entering a comfort zone and therefore burns more calories.
Squat With Swiss Ball

Pin the Swiss ball, an inflated plastic ball, between the curvature of your back and the wall. Keep knees bent, feet flat and shoulder-width apart. To perform the exercise, squat down, allowing the ball to roll up to 10 inches up your back. Feel the tension in your buttocks at the bottom of the squat as you hold it.
