Exercises that Work

exercise for losing weight
However, exercising right is very important in order to lose weight quickly. Signing on to exercise at the gym or getting a personal trainer can be expensive and then there's the added hassle of finding the time to get you there on a daily basis.

One of the best exercises is the old fashioned push up performed off the floor of your bedroom. Lie flat on the floor and get yourself into position, legs stretched straight out, hands flat on the floor beneath your shoulders and the upper half of your body raised. Keep your body rigid and lower your chest till it touches the floor. Push up off the ground until your arms are fully extended. This exercise will give your chest, shoulders, abdominal, lower back and triceps a good workout.

Squats are one of the most effective leg exercises. Stand straight and brace your hands behind your head, put your elbows back and stick out your chest. Lower your body as far as possible to a squatting position while bending your knees. Slowly raise yourself back to the standing position and start again.

Step ups also another exercise to do. Set up a stool of reasonable height or even a two step ladder stool and step up and down briskly, driving your knees for maximum effect. Put your right foot on the step and as you step off push your heel down on the other foot to bring it up.

This exercise is designed to toughen the central nervous system aiding calorie burn. Stand with your back against the wall and your feet approximately 6 inches away from it. Now raise your hands above your head while keeping the shoulders, elbows and wrists against the wall. Slowly slide your arms down the wall and bring the elbows into your sides.
