Hello Guys, I am Amy and through my weight loss journey I have researched for years to find out what are the best methods for weight loss. Whether they be food tips or workout styles, I have narrowed down the most effective moves to boost metabolism and banish fat, for good. If you’re interested have a look at my 5 day fitness programme!
Why wait for weight loss?
When you can kick-start it today
The exercises I have listed below use large muscle groupsin the body; this enables you to burn fat quickly by raising the heart rate/metabolic rate and engaging multiple muscle groups at one time.
You’ll notice that most of the moves are cardio strength, which means the fat is being burned quickly (with cardio) and your metabolic rate stays high with the strength.
Things you will need:
- Motivation (obviously)
- Water bottle
- Yoga mat (if you prefer)
You’ll notice that most, if not, all of my workout routines have a variation of squats in them; this is because they use such a big muscle in the body.
How to: Stand with your feet pointing slightly outwards. Take a weight from 5kg-10kg and squat down with your bottom pushing out, core tight and your knees behind your feet, tense your glutes and raise back up.
This will work your quads, hams, core, back and calves.
These are amazing exercises that use cardio and strength, I try to include these in most of my workouts, since they use a lot of core and arm focus, and they’re great for slimming down.
How to: In plank position, toes pointing down, hands under shoulders and elbows facing in, bring your feet up and in to your chest whilst standing up, all in a quick ‘hop’ motion. Bring yourself back down in plank position for one repetition.
This will work your shoulders, biceps triceps and core.
These are one step up from a kick-out! They’re cardio-strength, so more fat is being quicker and for longer; the kicks are kick-outs with a hop to the next leg.
How to: As your first leg is kicking-out push-off the ground with your other leg in a swooping motion, as the first leg hits the ground, kick-out with the other, repeat for one repetition. Keep your fists up and elbows in.
This will work your quads, hams, core, back and calves and great for cardio!
Running four miles and above
This is the basic one; everyone should have this in their planner as it’s an overall winner for everything! Great for all muscle groups in the body and since its pure cardio you can burn a tonne of fat.
How to: Get trainers, run!
This will work your quads, hams, core and your whole body, its great for cardio!
This is just a jump! Easy, right? It’s a squat with high jump attached so you can get some great glutes and cardio wrapped in that tight bundle.
How to: Stand with your feet pointing slightly outwards. Take a weight from 5kg-10kg and squat down with your bottom pushing out, core tight and your knees behind your feet, tense your glutes and jump straight up 3-5inches off the floor. Come back down into squat position.
This again will work your quads, hams and your whole body, its great for cardio!
All of these exercises are targeted at helping you lose weight, they’re quick fat-burning exercises, you should see results from the first week!
