Exercising is a good habit that helps control weight, prevents disease and improves our overall quality of life. You don’t have to spend long hours at the gym to reap the health benefits of exercise. Experts agree that exercising just 30 minutes a day is enough to keep fit and still offer health benefits for the body. Learn how you can burn 600 calories a day at home in the following article.
If you don’t have the desire or money to go to the gym, don’t worry, with this exercise routine you can burn up to 600 calories a day and tone your body without leaving the house and/or spending money. To enjoy all the benefits of this exercise routine, you should exercise in 40-minute sessions, three times a week, preferably in the morning. Are you ready to start?
Start burning calories
Before your workout, put on some music for energy and inspiration as you exercise. Then, warm up the muscles with a few gentle movements of the joints, neck, shoulders, waist, knees, ankles and hips.
Cardiovascular exercise is vital for staying in shape, good health, and easy weight loss. Start with an energetic jog or brisk walk around your home for 5 minutes. Then try going up and down the stairs or break out into a good dance session. You can also opt for cycling, running or swimming. When you’ve finished, you’ll have burnt up to 200 calories.
Pushups can also burn a significant amount of calories. Lie face down with your hands and feet flat on the floor, gently raise your body off the ground and then return to the starting position. This exercise can be done with the legs fully extended or with the knees bent. For best results, we recommend doing at least 80 pushups.
Squats are considered the most effective fat burning exercise, making them an important part of our routine. To begin, stand up with your hands behind your head. Lower your body as if to sit until it makes a 45° angle with the floor. Try to keep your back straight and do 60 to 80 repetitions.
To end our workout, we’re going to do 12 lunges, which will work the legs and buttocks, strengthening and toning them. Lunges can be done with or without weights.
To start, stand with the feet shoulder width apart. If you want to use weights, hold them in your hands with the palms facing the thighs. Then, take a large step forward with your right leg, while the left leg stays in position. Flex both knees so that the right thigh is parallel to the floor. Return to the starting position and repeat with the left leg. Continue until you’ve completed all 12 lunges.
- After you’re finished, remember to stretch your arms, legs, and waist to prevent muscle aches.
- If you want to stay in shape, remember it’s important to eat a diet low in fat, sugar and sodium.
- Eat more fruits and veggies. Not only will they help you lose weight, but they’ll also give you the energy you need for your workout.
- If you don’t want to do a full 40-minute session, break it up into four 10-minute sessions.
- Remember to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day for best results.
