The best exercises for weight loss include jumping or explosive movements along with speed and endurance. These 3 provide the most challenge for the user and in turn help inspire weight loss.
What you’re looking for in the best home exercises for weight loss is a move that is both technical and challenging.
A technical move has more than one part that can be modified and built upon. This will allow you to use the exercise for a longer period of time and get the same benefits. As you get better you can add more to the move and make it harder.
Challenging applies to the effort needed to execute the move. The harder it is the better the benefit. Think about walking or standing up. These are daily movements that we perform without any thought.
However, things like jumping and running require more thought and effort making them better for weight loss.
When you’re considering which is the best home exercise for weight loss you also need to account for your personal fitness level.
People who are less physically conditioned will get great results from less challenging movements where people with more endurance will have to work harder to achieve the same benefits.
No matter where you are physically this simple question will help you assess whether a movement is working or not. Is this hard?
That’s it… If the move makes you sweat and increases your heart rate chances are it’s working.
Another thing to ask is am I putting in more effort than normal? When you put in more effort than normal you will naturally challenge your body to work harder which usually ends up in weight loss.
All this being said another thing to remember is that no matter how much you sweat or how many burpees you do. You cannot out train a bad diet! If you eat too many calories no amount of exercise will do the trick.
There you go. Eat good healthy foods and utilize some HIIT workouts and hopefully shed some pounds.
