Losing weight is not easy, especially when you do not have a plan. My job is to give you an exercise plan to follow to help you during your weight loss plan. Each one of these exercises will not only help you lose weight, but will tone you up and build muscle. It’s just important to keep repeating these exercises and switch them up every so often. You body gets use to things just like you do. So if you keep the same plan every single day, it will not do you any good. Switching up your food and exercises is very important in maintain a healthy weight. So pick a few good exercises each day and change it up every so often. Now let’s get to the good stuff. Which exercises are going to help you shed those stubborn pounds?

  1.    Cardio (walking, running, jogging, jump-rope)
  2.    Strength (building muscles by lifting weights)
  3.    Cross fit Training
  4.    Yoga
  5.    Swimming

Of course you are familiar with cardio being the number one way to lose weight. That is why you are encouraged to walk at least 30 minutes each day to get your heart up. You can also jog, run and even jump rope to get your heart rate up. Make sure you continue with your cardio each day and rest only one day for maximum results.

Strength training is up there with cardio. You lose weight and gain muscle a lot faster. You might be wondering why the scale is not going down very fast when you are lifting weights 5 days a week at the gym. The realization is lifting weights builds muscle and muscle weighs more than fat. Therefore you are still losing weight, but gaining muscle.

A lot of people are not familiar with crossfit, but crossfit is actually a bunch of high intensity exercises put together to make you sweat. They incorporate different sporting exercises like gymnastics or canoeing to give you that extra burn. If you have not tried cross fit, you should. Your body will not regret it in the long run.

Yoga indeed will help you lose weight. You will also feel better mentally and your mind will get more inline with your body. You will notice your breathing will improve and you will become more flexible with each move you perform. Yoga is something that takes time. Don’t give up after your first yoga class. Trust me, you will get better time after time.

Swimming of course uses every muscle in your body, so of course you will lose weight when you are swimming. Make sure you are actually swimming laps or treading water when you are in the pool or ocean. Just sitting in the water will not burn the fat that you want to see.
