5 Weight Loss Home Exercises
Going to the gym to workout may be a bit too demanding of your schedule. There are kids at home, reports to be done and so many things to do. You regularly find yourself at home, with so little time for your weight loss programs. Why not exercise at home? But even if you consider exercising at home, you may not have enough knowledge of how to start. Here’s how:
Before we go straight to the exercises you can do at home, let us straighten some things first. Set your goals first. These may include your ideal weight, appearance or improving your endurance or strength. Always have a realistic goal. Don’t set goals that seem too far for you to achieve. Start with small goals, achieving them first will help you achieve your bigger goal. Set your exercise schedule where you think it will not be of much disturbance. Also, have a measurement tool. These will help you see your progress as you continue your plans.
Now that you’ve considered your goals, there are certain exercises you can try at home. Also, don’t worry because you don’t need any training equipment for weight loss exercises at home.
Squatting will help improve your leg muscles and buttocks. Position your knees at shoulder length and squat, putting your arms forward. Do this at least 10-20 times a day, considering your hectic schedule. You can also use different things you can use at home. Fill up a milk bottle with water, and now you have weights to hold while squatting.
Push-ups can improve your arm strength when done regularly. You can do it anywhere in the house with enough space for you to lie down. Start doing it 5-10 times and gradually increase it over time when you feel you can exceed them.
You may want to use bricks rather than bottles for this exercise. Cut the bricks in half until it is your desired weight. Make sure to do it in a room with enough space and nothing to be damaged when the weights fall-off or slip from your grip. Punch out fast but light to avoid damage to the joints. Punching lightly means don’t overextend your arms.
4. Stair Climbs
This may be the most convenient home workout. But of course, you have to have a star. It will improve heart beat rate as well as your legs and buttocks. You can also hold shopping bags filled with anything to use as weights. You can do 2 to 3 sets of this every morning when you wake up, to make your body up and alert.
5. Jumping Jack
The jumping jack will get your whole body working and sweating. Like the other workouts, you can do this anywhere at home – but be considerate to your neighbors if you are living in an apartment or 2-story bedrooms.
Doing these at home is an efficient way to weight loss. You not only have the convenience of being able to do it anywhere in the house but also different things are available at home that you can use to help improve your workout. Learn to improvise. Though exercise is important, never let it ruin your schedules where other important things are set. Set your schedules cleverly and abide by it to burn up all those unwanted fats and improve your life.
