5 Guaranteed Weight Loss Exercise From Home

Jumping jacks

How to do:

  • Begin stretching muscles of legs and arms. (i.e. hamstrings, quadriceps, glutes, calves, shoulders, back, triceps, biceps.) Stretching is very important in this exercise to avoid injury.
  • Assume an erect position, with feet together and arms at your side.
  • Slightly bend your knees, and propel yourself a few inches into the air.
  • While in air, bring your legs out to the side about shoulder width or slightly wider.
  • As you are moving your legs outward, you should raise your arms up over your head; arms should be slightly bent throughout the entire in-air movement.
  • Your feet should land shoulder width or wider as your hands meet above your head with arms slightly bent.
  • Quickly jump back to Step 2 and repeat Steps 3-6. Recommended 10-100 repetitions, depending on your physical health.
  • If jumping jacks are your last workout of the day, cool down stretching is essential.

Step up

How to do:

  • Place one foot on a step and push down through your heel to lift your other leg up.
  • Return to the starting position and finish all reps with one leg before switching legs and repeating the exercise.

Push up

How to do:

  • Assume the classic pushup position: legs straight, hands beneath your shoulders. 
  • Now brace your core. 
  • Keeping your body rigid, lower yourself until your chest touches the floor.
  •  Then push back up until your arms are extended.

Squats

How to do:

  • Stand with your head facing forward and your chest held up and out.
  • Place your feet shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. Extend your hands straight out in front of you to help keep your balance.
  • Sit back and down like you're sitting into an imaginary chair. Keep your head facing forward as your upper body bends forward a bit. Rather than allowing your back to round, let your lower back arch slightly as you descend.
  • Lower down so your thighs are as parallel to the floor as possible, with your knees over your ankles. Press your weight back into your heels.
  • Keep your body tight, and push through your heels to bring yourself back to the starting position.

Crunches

How to do:

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor, hip-width apart.
  • Place your hands behind your head so your thumbs are behind your ears.
  • Don’t lace your fingers together.
  • Hold your elbows out to the sides but rounded slightly in.
  • Tilt your chin slightly, leaving a few inches of space between your chin and your chest.
  • Gently pull your abdominals inward.
  • Curl up and forward so that your head, neck, and shoulder blades lift off the floor.
  • Hold for a moment at the top of the movement and then lower slowly back down.
