Belly fat, for example, can make you workout for months without shedding them off, which is an unwanted situation as we want to see some results. Although we have stubborn body fat, we can include some daily routines to get rid of them.
Incorporate cardio in your daily routine
Lifting does help to burn calories and fats, but cardio is the master of this game. Cardio elevates your heart rate to the clouds, which means burning a lot of calories. Weight loss is determined by consuming less calories than you spend, so actually cardio is a game changer here. Running, swimming, jogging, and cycling should be in your list.
Alternate lunges and push-ups combo
These combo moves burn a lot of calories because you move multi-joints. Doing 12 pairs of this combo will tone your upper and lower body and help you lose excess weight.
HIIT is the abbreviation of High Intensity Interval Training, and it depends on the method of “active resting” to shed off fats even while resting after the workout. The basic principle is giving your max effort for a short period of time and then actively rest just to take your breath, then repeat again as a cycle. The resting period could be twice the period of maximum effort, which puts your body in the zone of burning fats while resting. HIIT raises your metabolism and helps you keep on burning calories even after the workout.
Have 45 minutes of walking daily
Having this walk as an extra on your usual physical will help you burn those extra fats because your body starts getting in the fat burning zone where taking off the extra calories become easier. Having your walk before your workday and on an empty stomach are very effective in the sense of raising your metabolism too early in the day time.
Incorporate high compound movements
Do not use usual working out splits like Chest day, Back day, and Legs day, but rather, try to work your total body together in a single workout where you include more than one muscle group in a single exercise. Moving more joints means burning more calories, which makes you lose weight in return.
Find your joyful activities and do them
Find a sport that you are really interested in and start practicing it regularly. If you get bored on the treadmill and even running in any landscape for no purpose, then you might think of soccer for example as an alternative. Outdoor activities are always more interesting, like kayaking for example. These activities are considered cardio workouts but with a purpose, which will make you keep doing them and not running away of boredom.
Take the stairs
Whether going to your office, home, shopping mall, or even your friend’s home, take the stairs and stop using the elevator. Why skip a chance to lose some extra fats? A simple stair climb can actually help a lot as it burns more calories than normal walking. Hopping on the stairs can be a strong version of climbing the stairs too as it can be considered your cardio routine.
Tone your lower body and burn some extra calories as this exercise is one of the prominent multi-joint exercises that works your core and lower body extensively. Just learn how to execute the motion properly by making your spin straight, face uplift, shoulder blades shrugged, and do not extend your knees in front of your toes. Want to spice it up? Try some jumping squats for extra effort in the jumping move.
Develop your push-ups
Do not just claim that you can’t do push-ups and nag about your heavy weight. Build some strength and you will be able to do them regularly. Push ups tone your chest, shoulders, and arms while working your core and legs for stability, so basically it burns a lot of calories. Start with putting your hands on an elevated surface, which eliminates some of the added weight from the upper body and works the same muscles as well. Also you can try knee-pushups, which are much easier than normal push-ups. After that, you can try the normal ones.
Do cardio circuits
Raise your metabolism with this powerful technique where you end one exercise and do the other back to back so that you do not get bored and burn more fats. You can also do them with HIIT method and make the benefit out of everything. You can do cardio exercises with body weight movements like mountain climbers, burpees, jumping squats, kettlebell swings, skaters, alternating lungs and so on. Having this mixture will make your body put the calories on flames!
