3 Best Weight Loss Exercises
When it comes to weight loss, you should look at focusing on your entire body. A lot of times, people want to lose weight around the stomach or hands and legs, but that is not possible if you only focus on doing crunches or hand/leg exercises respectively. The core, as well as other important parts of your body, also require the “exertion”.
We have selected these top three exercises to lose weight from the entire body. Start with these and subsequently focus on the specific parts like losing belly fat or getting rid of those love handles.
These are the best weight loss exercises:
Lower half – abdomen, glutes, legs
How to Perform:
Lie down on your back with your legs and arms straight. Take a deep breath and lift both your legs without bending the knees and bring them closer to your torso. Lift them as long as you feel your stomach tightening and then hold for 2 seconds. Release and bring them down while breathing out and rest for two seconds.
Perform 10 times in sets of 3.
This is inarguably one of the best weight loss exercises you can do to sculpt your abs while also losing weight in your lower half. Are you focusing on shedding those pounds from your thighs and glutes? Then doing 3 sets of leg lifts can do wonders to your body in a matter of a few weeks. But, as you know, consistency is key, and you need to continue doing it for optimum results.
Abdomen, glutes, shoulders, chest, lower-back
How to Perform
Lie down on your stomach with your hands and legs straight. Keep your hands stretched on top of your head so that they are parallel to each other. While taking a deep breath, lift your thighs and chest/shoulders to balance the entire weight of your body on your tummy. Hold the position for 3 to 5 seconds and then release. While performing this, you will look like a superman, hence the name.
Perform 10 times in sets of 2.
The Superman is a power-packed weight loss exercise that affects all the major parts of your body. It has a tremendous flexing effect on your thighs and lower-back, helping you shed those extra pounds. It is also a fantastic way to lose belly fat fast, because of all the pressure you put in your abdomen muscles. However, make sure you complement it with a well-balanced diet to achieve speedy success. The E-Factor diet program will help you set the perfect diet for your needs depending upon your body type and lifestyle.
How to Perform
Stand upright with your legs slightly bent. Take a deep breath and assume the squat position by bending your knees and lowering your bottom. Hold for 1 second. While coming up, lift your legs and jump up as high as you can to finish one repetition. Rest for 2 seconds and then repeat.
Perform for 30 seconds in sets of 2.
Jump squat takes your entire body into consideration and is perfect for people who want to lose weight in general. It puts pressure on your glutes and bottom, knees and calves, and while jumping, on your entire body. It’s a great exercise to do in the morning to stay refreshed throughout the day. Around the world, jump squat is recommended for professionals who only have 30 minutes out of their busy schedule to work out from anywhere – office, hotel, anywhere.
Whether you are male or female, these weight loss exercises can be done in the comfort of your house without any equipment or expense. Make sure you perform it during the same time every day to reap the maximum benefits of effective fat loss exercises.
