Weight Loss Exercises At Home – Stomach Crunches

In this exercise you can do at home, you will lie down flat on your back. Then raise only the top half of your body by about 6 to 8 inches. Keep looking up at the ceiling and keep your back straight. You can try a pyramid as one of the most effective ways to exercise.

Do 30 repetitions then have a 2-minute break? After the first 30 repetitions and your 2-minute break, do another 20 repetitions. Again, when you’ve finished your second bout of exercises, take another 2-minute break.

Can you guess how many repetitions we’re going to do next?

That’s right, we’re going to do ten repetitions and then take another 2-minute break. Easy.

Then, if you’re feeling up to it, repeat the ten repetitions. That will give us a total of 70 repetitions. Don’t forget your 2-minute break in between each set of repetitions.

If you’re already reasonably healthy, then you should do this for about 40 repetitions.

Take a look at the following video which shows how to do your stomach crunches.

The Pros and Cons of Stomach Crunches:

Pros:

  • Like running in place takes little space.
  • You don’t need any equipment, but perhaps you might want a mat if you have a hard floor.

Cons:

  • If you have a bad back, you might not want to try these.
  • A hard floor may be too uncomfortable (try the mat, or a firm bed instead.)
  • Can be difficult at first, but you’ll be ok.

Burpees Exercises

I love the sound of this one. The burpee is an exercise you can do standing in one place. You do it by spreading your feet just wider than your shoulders. Then by placing your hands in front of you, but closer together than your feet.

Then you have to bend using your legs, not your back, to accomplish the correct technique.

After you get your hands in the right place, you should kick your feet out backward. Like you’re going to do a press-up. In one smooth movement, bring your feet back to their original position. (just more extensive than your shoulders are) and then stand up straight again.

Repeat the burpees as many times as you feel you can manage. Increase how many you’re doing just a little bit day by day.

Watch the video below that’ll show you how to do burpees properly.

Pros

  • You don’t need any equipment.
  • Are friendly and straightforward to do.

Cons:

  • You might have a problem if you have mobility problems.
  • If you have a bad back, you might irritate it.
  • You will not get the best results if you do them wrong.

Sit to Stand Exercises

With sit to stand exercises, you have to be in one place with your feet firm, as there will be no need to move them at any point. Squeeze your butt cheeks together and keep your knees close to each other.

Bend your knees and try to keep your head and back straight. I must say, that if you are very overweight. Then are excellent weight loss exercises at home to try and do.

Look right in front of you. Gently and slowly lower yourself into the sitting position until you make contact with the seat. Then it’s time to get back up into your original stance.

Watch the next video which will show how to do stand to sit exercises the right way.

You will like this as much as any of the others. As this exercise is ideal for your legs, your glutes and back, your abs and your shoulders. (Glutes are butt muscles). The critical thing with kettlebell swings is to remember you’re not trying to “lift” the kettlebell. You’re just “swinging” the kettlebell.

The Pros and Cons of Kettlebell Swings:

Pros:

  1. Since I am not a big fan of bulky machines I will look into this. I was wondering … With most things I do for my legs, I have problems with my knee. During a football game back in 1994, I injured my knee which never healed properly. If I try running, biking or other exercises on machines I have pain and try to stay away from them. Some of the exercises look like not perfect with knee problems, which once are not stressing my knee?

    1. Hello, and thank you for your comment and question. The kettlebell swing and stomach crunch put no real strain on the knee area. Unfortunately, the others do. Although, do not despair. As if you want to get in shape, then, I would suggest that you do the kettlebell swing anyway. Here is the direct link to my post on it and another video too.
