A burpee gives you a wicked head-to-toe workout

The confabulation of having to exercise to lose weight is not an arcane piece of advice. For those of you who strength train and religiously work out, these exercises will prove to be beneficial―you’ll be revving up your metabolism at several intervals during the day, giving your body a reason to shed weight faster. Cool, right? Take a look at these exercises that we think are some of the best and easiest to do indoors or out.

Bench Push-Ups (One-Legged)
It doesn’t have to be a bench, but anything that can serve as a platform to raise you off the floor. If using one leg proves to be taxing, start off with both, before slowly learning how to depend on the strength of your arms. Your back should be rigidly straight.

Where to Perform These Exercises

We suggest traversing the outdoors to find a great spot to do these exercises, like the park, beach, backyard, or even a sports stadium. A space that is secluded, tranquil, and devoid of pollution in any form, should ideally be your go-to location. These exercises can also be done at your abode whilst you cook, clean, or do the laundry. Even when you’re sprawled in front of the idiot box, you can perform an exercise during the commercial break―it’ll give you a couple of minutes to do an exercise per intermission.

While at the office, you can definitely perform some of these exercises to give your body a mini workout post a heavy meal. We recommend keeping an exercise ball at the office to perform some nifty exercise moves when no one’s looking. Take advantage of benches, staircases, or any area that can be of assistance for an exercise move.

With these fat-busting exercise moves, you can be sure to notice the results in the near future. While these workouts are great, we would love it if you carried some light weights with you while exercising outdoors. It’ll add definition to your body as you shed the extra pounds, where increasing the weights you carry will be a huge bonus. Things you can take with you outdoors? Dumbbells, exercise ball, resistance band, ankle weights, jump rope, yoga mat, and even kettlebells. Alternate between the aforementioned exercises to give your body a head-to-toe workout.
