Want to slim down, burn the most calories and sculpt your body but can’t decide which workout type would help you best?
Look no further. We have selected the best exercise routines that will provide excellent results, and the good news is that you won’t have to live in the gym for that to happen.
Without further ado, let’s see the best and simplest ways to set those calories on fire!
When you say muscles, you say squat. It’s one of the best ways to burn fat and get rid of cellulite. Squats work your lower body:
– Hip muscles
How to do a squat
– Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart
– Back straight, go down as if you were going to sit on an imaginary chair
– Make sure you stop when your elbows meet your knees
– Keep chest up, back straight, and heals down
– Now come up nice and tall.
Work your way up to 3 sets of 10–15 reps
Like squats, lunges strengthen your lower body, require no equipment, and are super easy to learn
-Start as if you’re going to do a squat, hand on your side
-Then, take a step forward
-Bend your knees at approximately 90 degrees
-Try not to touch the ground with your back knee
-Now you can stand back to a neutral position and switch legs or keep working on the same leg.
A piece of advice: Don’t forget to breathe in when you lunge and only breathe out when you ‘re back in a neutral position
As for Sets and Reps, lunges are the same as squats. Just increase the number of reps with every set.
You might be wondering. What would happen to my body if I did planks every day? Here is just the tip of the iceberg.
– Your body alignment will improve
– You’ll have a straighter back
– It will help with your flexibility, metabolism, and even your mood
We believe we have caught your attention somewhere in the benefits of planks. You are now intrigued and would like to know how this easy exercise is done.
-Start the exercise by getting on your knees or your stomach if you prefer
-Then, lift your whole body facing the ground
-Keep your back straight and in line with your skull, buttocks, and legs
-Support yourself on your toes, elbows, and arms and squeeze your glutes and tummy
-Stay like this for about 30 seconds while facing the floor
As for planks, start with short sets then work your way up to longer ones to give your body muscles the chance to cope with such exercises, but never forget that practice makes perfect, and eventually, you will notice that it is getting easier day after day.
Here we are yet with another classic exercise that is considered the holy grail of all exercises if you want to increase your upper-body strength
It’s kind of like the plank, but with a little more movement:
-Get down on all fours
-Place your hands wider than your shoulders
-Raise your body by extending your arms
-Straighten your legs and lower your body towards the ground
-Stop when chest almost touches the ground and arms form a 90-degree angle
-Go back up, and repeat the exercise
As usual and by assuming that are a beginner, start with 2 to 3 sets of 10 reps max. later when you master the technique, you can modify the pattern.
Now for the cherry on top! We have tackled your lower and upper body, yet we haven’t treated your “engine” with a good exercise that will improve your heart and lungs.
As usual, no equipment is required to do such an exercise, and here is how to do it:
– Stand up with your arms by your side and legs together
– Just jump and spread your legs as wide as your shoulders
– While doing that, place your arms above your head
– Return to neutral position then repeat
You can notice that we have gone through multiple exercises that improve specific areas in your body and mostly covered them all without any equipment whatsoever. All that is required from your side is both patience and determination, so you can finally achieve the body you’ve always wanted.
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water, eat healthily and get enough sleep and while working out, remember that your only limit is you.
