The Best Exercises for Weight Loss

BEST EXERCISES FOR WEIGHT LOSS

With so much conflicting information floating around these days regarding weight loss and fitness it can be difficult to determine which type of exercise is most beneficial in achieving weight loss results.

Many people are now ditching hours on the cross trainer for much more effective workouts in the weights area. And rightly so, implementing weight training into your routine can help you shift any unwanted body fat and transform your body into a calorie burning machine, even whilst you're Netflix and chilling. Weight training is not only great for burning calories in the gym, but your body will also be burning calories up to 48 hours after you've finished your workout!

If these huge benefits don’t have you running to the squat rack then you may be interested to hear that weight training can help you to sculpt different areas of your body to achieve the shape you've always desired. In addition to having a significant impact of boosting your metabolism and body toning, weight training can also increase your strength and help you to feel more empowered!

The best way to incorporate weight training into your routine would be by performing large compound exercises that require more than one muscle group. By doing so your heart rate will remain elevated, and your body will receive the correct signals to hold onto your lean muscle tissue and burn an excessive amount of calories.

Some of the top calorie burning exercises include:

 

  • Weighted Squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Lunges
  • Overhead presses
  • Bent Over rows
  • Chest Presses
  • Kettlebell exercises
  •  

     

    Body weight HIIT circuit consisting of the following exercises for maximum calorie burn is also highly effective and won't take up too much time!

     

  • Burpees
  • Pull ups
  • Press ups
  • Jumping jacks
  • Mountain climbers
  • Tuck jumps
  •  


    Spend 30 seconds on each exercise with 15 seconds rest between stations. Repeat circuit 3-6 times, with 1 min rest between sets.

     

     

    The more muscle your body has the higher your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) which means you will naturally be torching more calories.
