Here’s what you can do to burn maximum calories
Even though exercising goes much beyond the
beyond the weighing scale and has other physical and physiological benefits, like benefiting heart health, mental health, strengthening bones, maintaining blood glucose levels and lifting your mood. Despite all these benefits, it is understandable why some of us might lay extra emphasis on shedding the extra kilos. In people who have weight induced hormonal imbalance or are in the obese category, losing weight becomes the first and foremost goal to achieve a healthier body. In people with conditions like thyroid, P COS and other hormonal issues, weight loss becomes a feat to achieve because of the endocrine disturbances.
People suffering from these conditions might exercise in the same amounts as a normal person but end up getting no results at all in contrast to normal people who would see results. We bring to you five exercises that will target the scale and help you lose weight.
This exercise involves jumping laterally while moving the arms in coordination with jumps. The jumping and great co-ordination of your arms and legs will escalate your heart rate and the use of a full body will definitely lead to burning more calories.
Mountain climbers can be categorized as a complex movement as it involves the entire body. Start in the plank position, lift one leg and push it forward to your chest, then put that leg back into plank position and repeat this on the other side. If you start slowly and gradually increase your speed, it would almost feel like you are running. A high intensity workout, this works both sets of limbs and tones the abs.
You start with one leg in the forward position and the other slightly backward, in the classic lunge position. Jump up and move the first leg back and the other leg forward, landing back in a lunge on the other side. This plyometric movement increases muscle power by combining speed with force and going with full force in your movements will get your heart going.
A very intense full body movement, burpees tire you out very quickly. Start with standing with your arms by your sides and quickly lower yourself in a squat. Put your hands on the floor in front of you and jump with your feet back into the plank position. Jump your feet forward towards your hands and stand with your hands in the air. This movement works all your muscles including your quads, triceps, obliques, calves, abs and deltoids. Burpees can also be done with variations so that the movement becomes more intense.
A jumping version of the squat, this exercise adds to the effectiveness of squats and helps burn calories along with sculpting and reshaping your body. Start with your legs hips apart, squat down and jump as high as you can then land back on your feet. Your arms will help in propelling you, helping you push back as you jump up.
