Are you ready to show off your slim body this spring? I will show you how to get in shape while having fun.
Getting in shape does not have to be stressful. There are fun and easy ways that will easily help you get in shape without stress. Most of these methods won’t cost you a lot of money. Workout routines like swimming, jogging, or riding your bike could be absolutely free and fun ways to lose weight and get in shape.
No matter how old or young we may be, we all need to get in shape after the long cold winter. We will need to put on something comfortable, and engage in fun outdoor activities to get our blood circulation going. We also need to look good and have fun while we are at it.
Losing weight is not rocket science. To lose weight effectively and to keep it off, you need a healthy diet plan that gives you all the nutrients that you need, a healthy lifestyle and an effective workout routine that gradually improves your fitness level.
As simple as it may be, many of us struggle to keep those extra pounds off our body, especially in places like our waist, thighs, buttocks and stomach.
Here in this blog you will find 7 simple exercises that will target your lower body and get you in shape quickly. These exercises are recommended by health and fitness trainers and experts from all over the world, so they are very effective and should work for most of us. But, as always, consult a physician before starting a new routine, especially if you have other health concerns.
Top 7 exercises to lose weight
These exercises are designed to boost your blood circulation, give you a cardio workout, and tone your muscles while you burn calories. These exercises work well with most people and should be done regularly for best results
Something as simple as “brisk walking” could be a great exercise, which anyone can easily do. Typically most anyone can fit walking into their everyday daily life. Walk to your nearby store or walk at work for few minutes, when you take a coffee break to get a great workout at work. If you walk regularly, you could easily tone your legs, rear and thighs, and also tone your stomach muscles. Walking uphill or sprinting will increase the amount of calories you burn and tone you faster. It is also a great cardio exercise.
Now is the time to get your bike out and ride around your block a few times every day. Riding your bike is great for toning your legs and glutes. Ride for at least 30 minutes every day to burn your extra calories. To see best results within a very short time, you need to ride regularly and ride fast. Riding uphill will also burn more calories faster. Riding your bike outdoors is always a fun and easy way to get a great workout.
3. Step aerobics
Climbing steps gives you a great low impact aerobic exercise and also targets your legs and hip areas and tightens them up, an area that many of us find difficult to work with. Step aerobics can be easily done using a simple step at home, in your garden or at work. Do the step aerobics by climbing stairs for 30 minutes twice a day or use an aerobic step, and step up and down on it for 30 minutes. Take stairs whenever you can instead of elevators, and you’ll get the extra benefit.
Swimming gives you an awesome full body workout while it soothes you. I have never seen people sad and gloomy around a swimming pool. Although swimming is usually a summer activity, you could find indoor swimming pools if it’s too cold to go to an outdoor swimming pool. Swimming up and down the pool is a great way to burn calories while you tone your whole body.
Gardening is a fun and simple way to get an outdoor workout. Get outside and get your garden ready. Rake your leaves, pull out some weeds and prepare your soil for planting a garden. You can plan a beautiful indoors garden, or work on your own backyard kitchen garden for fresh herbs and vegetables.
Dancing is another one of those exercises that targets your whole body. Dancing helps you relax, reduce stress, lose weight and help you stay healthy, all while you are having fun. Dancing also gives you an excellent opportunity to get social and stimulate your mind. You may want to enroll in dance lessons or watch dance instructions on YouTube or DVD, and try to learn some new moves yourself. While you can practice dancing at least an hour every day, go out and dance at least one night every week with your partner.
Play any kind of sport that you possibly can, such as running around with your kids with a soccer ball, or playing a game or two of tennis to work up a sweat. Playing any kind of sport helps you to burn calories and lose weight in a fun and exciting way. Stay active and keep your fitness level high.
If you are trying to get in shape and are having a tough time, these tips could certainly help you to lose weight in a fun and easy way. Stay focused on your goal, avoid junk food and live a healthy life. With a regular workout routine, you are sure to get in shape within a very short time.
