The 7 most effective exercises for losing weight
Walking is regarded as one of the best exercises because you can do it literally anywhere-indoors on a treadmill or outdoors in the street. And because it is simple enough for even a grandma to do and requires little or no extra equipment…apart from maybe walking shoes, and because it is no less effective than other more complex exercises, as a lazy 30 minute walk(or stroll down the neighborhood) can burn up to 200-300 calories. And because walking, being an effective cardio exercise burns fat selectively…almost exclusively.
And it’s fun too especially during the cooler times of the day as you enjoy the cool breeze and take in the scenery or stroll to jolly music as you march on your treadmill.
Walking is good for your muscles, your joints and your heart and hardly ever causes injuries.
Squats are great because they are very easy to do. Everyone understands what it means to squat. You don’t need any special tutoring to do it and do it right. You don’t need any special equipment to do it apart from your body, you don’t need to go to the gym, you don’t need a special instructor, you don’t need to pay extra money or buy fancy new equipment, heck! you can even do it in your boxers of PJ as soon as you get out of bed in your bedroom in the morning. You can do it at work if you choose. Squats are simple, effective, easy and cheap and can be done literally anywhere and the fact that it works multiple muscle groups and is great for toning your thighs, legs and butt and burns 400 calories every 30 minutes you do it are just bonuses
Lunges are great because like squats they work the muscles of your lower body so that you not only lose weight but also get the chance to tone certain parts of your body when you do them-particularly your thighs, legs and butt. They are also relatively simple to do and do not require extra equipment and can be done anywhere. Lunges are also important for improving balance. 30 minutes of lunging burns around 275 calories.
Pushups are very simple to do. You can jump out of bed and do them, besides they work several of your muscle groups at the same time-your chest, arms, shoulders and core-pushups are probably the simplest way to work on your core there is. You don’t need any special equipment to do them, they don’t cost you any money and you can do them virtually anywhere. Pushups are not great for burning calories though-50 pushups burn only 50 calories but that’s not why you do them-you do pushups to build muscle mass, prevent muscle loss as you lose weight, tone your muscle and increase strength and fitness. And for those purposes it works wonders.
5 High intensity interval training(HIIT)
Interval training probably burns more calories than any other form of fitness training ever invented. It is very effective because it keeps your body burning calories for days after you do it. In fact a 20 minute session of interval training burns fat for up to 36 hours-1 ½ days. But the great thing is that you can apply it to any workout…whether you are walking, running, dancing, cycling; it works with virtually every workout and makes every workout way more effective than it would otherwise be.
The basic idea is to vary the intensity of your workouts at preplanned intervals rather than exercising at a steady lazy pace.
For example you can split your cycling session into periods of quick bursts and slower pedaling say at 30-60 second intervals.
The after burn-the fact that you burn calories for longer after your session of Interval training has finished is what makes it so powerful.
Crunches are great for strengthening your abdominal muscles and can be done literally anywhere. You don’t need any extra equipment to do them and they do not cost you any extra money. They are a great for people who are already eating a healthy diet in order to try and shed abdominal fat. 30 minutes of crunches burns between 170-300 calories depending on how vigorously you do it.
7 Bent over row
Bent over rows are great because they work all the muscle groups of your upper back and your biceps as well. They are great for getting fit and toning your body.
Those are the world’s 7 most effective exercises-they are easy, simple, cheap, can be done literally anywhere and get you looking slim and fit very quickly. Do them often and you’d witness a minor miracle in your body.
