Easy Weight Loss Exercises
Article by John Heier
Let’s get started right away, I’m not going to bore you with long explanations and complicated directions. These exercises are easy to do and will burn the most calories. Not only that they target the problem areas in your body which 90% of the time are your belly, butt, and thighs. The first thing you have to realize is that the weight you’re trying to lose won’t just disappear on its own, you need to put some work into it. In other words you need to get up off your butt and do these exercises at least every other day. Doing these exercises combined with a good healthy diet will give you the best results.
The first exercise is an easy one that everyone knows how to do and that’s because it’s just going for a walk. Remember our first goal is to get you up and moving and burning more calories. So if you’re just starting off your weight loss goal all I ask of you at first is just to get up off your butt and go for a walk for a half hour. Just going for a walk combined with a healthy diet can give you immediate results. Remember though you need to do this daily or at the very least every other day. Our goal is to build up your stamina so you can eventually go for a jog, and build up to running and really burning off those calories. For now though if you’re just starting stick with walking and do your best to get in at least a half hour walk every day. As you get more comfortable walking and you can do so with ease then you can start jogging. So once you’re comfortable walk for five minutes to warm up your body, stretch too you don’t want to pull anything, then jog for five minutes, then go back to walking for five minutes and so on till your done with your work out. As you get more and more fit increase your jogging time and start to include running. This is a very simple exercise that anyone can do every day with no equipment. The important part is to stick to it, don’t give up, and continue to get up off your butt and burn those calories away.
The next exercise is also very simple yet very effective. Walking, Jogging, and Running will build up muscles in your legs, but we do it more for cardio. That is to get your heart rate up and pumping to burn a lot of calories quickly. The next exercise is both cardio and weight lifting in a way. It will target two of the three problem areas in the body which are if you remember the thighs, butt, and belly. This will target the thighs and the butt, do this exercise enough and you’ll turn your flabby thighs and butt into firm, tone, and sexy thighs and butt. The exercise is a simple lunge. Now how this exercise is preformed is by starting with your two feet together, take a long stride with your left foot, then lower your right knee almost to the ground, raise your right knee back up, and step forward with your right foot. Do the same thing but this time step forward with your right foot and lower your left leg. Once you bring your left foot back together with your right foot you have done one rep, i recommend you do ten reps and two sets. It is important to keep your back straight the whole time you do this exercise and keep your hands on your waist. As you do this exercise more and more try adding dumb bells to add more weight and work your muscles more. I would recommend that you do this exercise along with the following one on one day and then do your walk or jog on the next, and keep alternating the exercises daily.
The final exercise I am going to show you is also easy and effective and I recommend you combine it with the lunge I just told you about, so basically do them both on the same day. This exercise will work out your upper and lower abs, in other words it will help flatten your belly. So to start off you need to lay down flat on your back but put your calves and feet on a chair or couch so that your thighs and calves form a 90 degree angle. Then place both hands behind your head and interlock your fingers to support your neck. Now you are in position to do a rep. Once you’re in position slowly raise your head up towards the sky lifting your upper back off the ground till you feel a burn in your stomach muscles. Once you get to where you can’t raise your head anymore hold it for a count of one one thousand and then slowly lower your head back to the ground. Be sure to support your head and neck as you do this exercise. The main strain should be on your stomach muscles not your neck. Once you’ve raised your head up and then back down to the ground you have done one rep. I recommend if you are just starting off do as many as you can to figure out where you are physically. Once you figure out how many you can do try to increase this number every time you do the exercise. After you get stronger you can add weight plates to increase the amount off burn in your muscles.
These are the three exercises I am going to start you off with. You should try to do these exercises daily if you can. One day go for a walk for 30 min, the next day do the lunge and stomach exercises. Doing all these exercises will build muscle and burn fat quickly. You have to also have a good healthy diet with a lot of protein too to be successful with your weight loss goals.

Do these exercises for 30 days along with a good healthy diet and you will be amazed at how much your body will have changed. You can do this I know you can because I am doing it too, and if I can lose weight so can you. Believe in yourself and believe you’ll reach your goals and nothing will stop you.
