The best way to burn calories quickly is by performing this total body workout. “The goal is to use as many different parts of the body as possible, because the more you move, the more you’ll boost the burn,” explains trainer Jonathan Ross, author of Abs Revealed. This workout will boost calorie burning while letting your muscles recover. The best part about this workout is the fact that you can perform it just about anywhere.
Breath in and out as you do the jumping jacks and find the rhythm to your breathing and it’ll make your workout easier.
Note: Rotator cuff injuries have been reported from consistently doing jumping jacks over time. To avoid injury you may also perform “half-jacks”, these are done the same way, except you only bring your arms parallel to your shoulders and back down.
Stand straight and part your feet to the width of your shoulders and put your hands stretched forward for extra balance. Bend your knees and lower yourself. The knees need to be at 90 degrees angle, while the thighs need to be parallel to the floor. Keep your back straight, without letting your knees extend over your toes. Get back to the starting position
Stand straight with the feet hip width apart, looking straight ahead and arms hanging down by your side. Jump from one foot to the other at the same time lifting your knees as high as possible, hip height is advisable. The arms should be following the motion..Touch the ground with the balls of your feet
Lunges are the perfect complement to squats, and they are so versatile that they can be done while walking to the living room! In a controlled motion, simply step forward while lowering your back knee towards the floor. Your front leg’s knee should point forward while your back leg straightens out towards the floor. Keep your back straight and slowly come up once you feel resistance. Repeat this sequence across the room until fatigued. This exercise will provide great weight loss results and super strong calves!
Start in a traditional push up starting position, your feet a couple of inches apart and your arms directly under your shoulders. Keep your abs tight and drop your body straight down bending just your arms. Go back to the starting position. Repeat.
Start with your back against a wall (or use an exercise ball if you have one) with your feet shoulder width and about two feet from the wall. Slowly slide your back down the wall until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Adjust your feet if you need to so that your knees are directly above your ankles (rather than over your toes). Keep your back flat against the wall. Hold the position.
Your arms must be positioned correctly and your elbows set directly under the shoulders for proper weight distribution. The spine remains straight(don’t round out the spine). Tighten the core to benefit from the exercise. Keep your legs slightly spread without adding pressure to the hip area. Adjust the distance between your feet as you need it. Breath slowly and deliberates so that your core is fully engaged and your body is relaxed.
