5 Types Of Workouts That Will Help You Lose Weight
“Virginia, I’ve put on 3 more pounds last week. What am I going to do now? I can’t afford to pay the gym fees from my pocket money this month. I’m already broke. Can you help me?”, said Maddy exasperated. “Of course darling. I have some great workouts up my sleeve that will help you lose weight. And you can do them at home. It’s frills-free”, Virginia said. “Then let’s get started immediately. Tell me more about it”, said Maddy.
Here are the top 5 workouts that Virginia told Maddy about.
1. Step Aerobics
“Do you know how step aerobics can help you burn many calories in one day?”, Virginia asked. “These exercises seem like kids stuff when you see them on the telly, but when you actually do them, you’ll get knocked out on the first day itself. They’re so intensive”, she added. “I know where I could learn them from. I have the latest DVD’s of step aerobic exercises”, said Maddy. “The beauty of these simple looking exercises is that they will target the fat on your legs, thighs, bum and abs, all at once”, said Virginia.
2. Jumping Rope & Trampoline Jumping
“Virginia, do you think skipping rope would help me lose weight?”, Maddy asked. “Oh sure, Maddy. You can start off with 10 skips and then gradually plug it to 100. You can also combine trampoline jumping with it so that there is no monotony. You can try a variety of landing patterns to give your foot some exercise when you jump rope”, suggested Virginia. “I think I like this idea. This is a great natural workout to lose weight”, said Maddy.
3. Cardio Exercises
“Virginia, can you suggest some cardio exercises to me? I’ve heard that they’re great for losing weight”, said Maddy. “Maddy, cardio exercises can be indoor as well as outdoor. They basically involve large body muscles such as arms and legs. You could opt for swimming, walking and bicycling as outdoor cardio workout routines or work the treadmill, elliptical trainers or the stationery bicycle if you have them at home”, advised Virginia.
