10 Simple Ways To Lose Weight At Home

By Power Of Positivity

A trip to the gym seems like a good idea, doesn’t it? Sure. But there are plenty of reasons why heading to the gym isn’t always ideal: lousy weather, costs, distance, etc.

A hike to the gym, while ideal for some, is not the only means of getting a workout. A 10- to 15-minute at-home sweat session is all you need.

Now, when it comes to at-home gyms, there are three trains of thought:

– An at-home gym (or workout) can replace a trip to the local sweat farm.

– An at-home workout is far inferior to the one you can get at the gym.

– An at-home gym/workout is great as a supplementary means of getting your sweat on.

That said, one indeed can get a great workout from home. In fact, here is an exercise routine consisting of 10 movements that will get you sweating fast.

Here’s the gist: perform each move for 30 seconds, and rest for 30 seconds. (Please use your common sense here. If you need less rest, move at a faster pace. If you need more, move slower.)

Here are the 10 ways to do it ( without going to the gym ):

lose weight exercise

1. Sprint In Place

Use this quick movement as an expedient way to get your blood flowing.

(1) Stand in an upright, neutral position.
(2) In a fast motion, bring your knees to your waist while swinging your arms.

(Note: Do not stop during this movement unless absolutely necessary. It is crucial to elevate your heart rate at the beginning phase.)

2. Jumping Jacks

(1) Stand with feet together, knees slightly bent, and arms to sides.
(2) Jump while raising arms and separating legs to sides.
(3) Land on the forefoot with legs apart and arms overhead.
(4) Jump again while lowering arms and returning legs to mid-position.

3. Rear Lunge

(1) Step back with one leg while bending opposite leg.
(2) Plant forefoot far back on the floor.
(3) Lower body by flexing knee and hip of supporting leg until knee of rear leg is almost in contact with the floor.
(4) Return to standing position by extending the hip and knee of the forward supporting leg.
(5) Return rear leg next to supporting leg.
(6) Switch and repeat.

(Note: Keep torso as upright as possible; doing so will maximize the flexibility of your hip flexors.)

4. Body Squat

(1) Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. With your hands interlocked, hold them at the back of your head. (You may also keep arms outstretched in front of you if this helps maintain balance.)
(2) Begin the movement by flexing your knees and hips, sitting back with your hips.
(3) Lower your torso as much as possible.
(4) Reverse the motion until you return to the starting position.

(Note: Please keep your head and chest up throughout the movement.)
