Just take a look below at the TOP TEN exercises that will tighten and tone your body like no ‘cardio’ exercise can to build shapely muscle and get your ‘sexy back’.
These exercises are in no particular order. You should notice that they are what’s called ‘compound movements’ so they work multiple muscles at once. This helps you burn the most fat in the least amount of time when you incorporate them into your workout plan.
Are you ready? Here we go….
Top 8 Exercises to Lose Weight
1. The Squat
In reality, you do this movement every day when you hit the loo or sit in a chair, whether you think you’re capable of squatting or not. It’s a basic functional movement that shapes your entire leg and butt. When your lower body is shapely, your body screams of athleticism and fitness.
You’d be surprised at how challenging even bodyweight squats can be, and for an added challenge, you can add some weight with a barbell or dumb bells. Take a look at how it’s done here:
2. The Lunge
It’s all about the butt! The lunge will tighten and tone the butt and hamstrings, (which are located on the back of your legs). You can see how to do the lunge properly here:
If you experience any knee pain, you can easily swap out a lunge for the glute bridge to target the butt and hamstrings:
3. The Push-Up
The lowly push-up isn’t glamorous, but it gets the job done! You’ll strengthen your triceps, tone your upper chest and did you know that sexy arms start with beautifully sculpted shoulders? All hail the push-up! It can be done anywhere and modified to any fitness level and also will strengthen your core…talk about quadruple duty!
4. The Plank
Forget sit-ups, crunches, and side bends, the plank is where it’s at to strengthen the entire core, including the shy and ‘oh so important’ transverse abdominous. This is the muscle that will help prevent or reduce back pain once it’s engaged. A worthy goal is to be able to do a plank for one minute straight.
5. The Spider Crawl
This might not look like a waist whittler, but ‘Holy Obliques Batman!’ this will light your core up while also increasing hip mobility. Exercises that do double duty are the bomb
6. The Get Up
Everyone wants ‘six pack abs’ but most folks don’t realize that you can achieve a flat and toned tummy while blasting other muscles. Get rid of flying bat wing triceps with this triceps move that will also engage your core like never before!
7. The Burpee
This one move is the reason you can put your treadmill up for sale. It hits ALL your major muscle groups and also gets your heart pumping. You’ll burn MORE belly fat by incorporating this simple move than doing hours of slow cardio on any cardio machine. Oh, and the beauty of the beautiful burpee is that it can be modified to ANY fitness level.
8. Jumping Rope
Take a trip down memory lane to grade school and bust out a jump rope. Skipping can be done pretty much anywhere and is a wonderful alternative to running. You’ll be toning your arms and legs while you burn a ton of calories. If you’re frustrated with your lack of skills, you can still benefit from the movement by doing a ‘phantom’ skip where you toss your rope to the side and just pretend to jump rope by going through the motions.
