Fat Burning Workouts At Home

By Yuri Elkaim, BPHE, CK, RHN

The best thing about fitness is most of the time it can be carried out anywhere if there is enough room and the desired equipment, you don’t always need expensive gym memberships to fancy gyms and health clubs. There is an old saying ‘Home is where the heart is’ and it’s true in many circumstances.
A lot of people would rather work out in their own homes instead of dripping in sweat in front of people they don’t really know. When working out at home also saves you on fees and gasoline expenses. During a recession this can really help.  The two fat burning workouts for you to use at home are really simple and easy to execute.

  1. The first one is squatting with your bodyweight combined with the mighty push ups. This is a great exercise because you can do one after the other in your home. At first you can stand up with your feet shoulder width apart, while bending your knees slightly to perform a sitting on the air posture. If you want to add more intensity while you squat up and down you can add dumbbells, if you don’t have any dumbbells just use something with a reasonable weight e.g. baked bean cans.

  2. Perform roughly 32 repetitions before you carry on to the push up phase of the exercise. If the women want to they can kneel down on the floor while they do the press ups. Perform 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions. You can then rest after both exercises, and then do another set of squats and push ups. To burn more fat, perform more sets and then you can increase the sets when you start becoming a lot fitter. While completing this exercise remember to focus on your breathing as this is a key factor to get the best results in short periods. When you master this combination at home, you will also notice your strength will increase as well.

  3. The second home fat burner is jumping jacks. It’s one of the easiest methods to in burning fat quickly and efficiently.  When you jump it moves your body, which leads to the fat been broken down in all areas. If you carry out this exercise for two minutes with a rope you can feel the burn, imagine what it’s like after 30-40 minutes then. If you are a beginner then just perform the exercise for roughly 20 minutes, again increasing the time as you feel fitter

Many people use this technique because it really makes you sweat a lot quicker and easier. If you don’t have a rope at home, just use something like the staircase, anything with an elevated platform really.

If you perform these exercises on a frequent basis you will really see the results and feel the difference. Now you know you don’t always have to go the gym to break that sweat.
