Упражнения за отслабване у дома | LuckyFit

Working out at the gym can be fun for those of us who enjoy noisy companies and feel motivated to work out with friends and among many people. They are an excellent combination of the ability to keep our body in a good physical shape and at the same time they are a part of our active social life. At the gym we meet people who have interests similar to ours, we exchange experience, knowledge, even establish new friendships and find a new social environment.

The problem areas for each woman are thighs, abdomen, arms and, of course, the buttocks.

Do these weight loss exercises at home for at least 2 months and we guarantee you a visible result! It is important to plan your workouts by doing them each time at the same time, every day or on certain days of the week to acquire training habits and turn working out into part of your daily routine.

Diversify your program of exercises for weight

It is also important to diversify our workout by changing exercises or repetition schemes. A limited set of equipment at home may reduce the choice of exercise but that does not mean that we have to do the same exercises every day.  Using our imagination, we can combine perfectly different weight loss training exercises that we can only perform with the weight of our body. Latest research proves the effectiveness of interval and conditioning exercises with one’s own weight, so let’s get to work!

It is important, however, to increase the effectiveness of weight loss exercises at home by making them more fun to avoid the monotony trap. Let’s include bands, dumb-bells, balls, elastic bands, jumping ropes, everything we can think of, in our weight loss program. To increase the effect of training at home and to achieve the desired loss of weight and especially visible tightening and shaping of our body, it is a good idea to diversify our workout plan by alternating muscle groups on a single day and once or twice a week to perform a functional workout to surprise our muscles in order for them not to get used to the same load and thus cause the exercises to lose their effectiveness.

If we are aiming for a quicker effect, we can choose functional weight loss exercises that include exercises for the whole-body complexes. So we will use more energy and we will include more muscle groups and most of all we will use up more calories. Combined with reduced calorie intake, regular workouts at home will result in burning of the accumulated fat and loss of extra weight.

Weight loss workouts at home are effective as long as we observe the following conditions

  • Warm up our body carefully before each workout and stretch after each group of exercises to protect our body from injuries;
  • Train regularly – at least 3 times a week;
  • Train effectively – when performing the exercises, focus on our physical activity rather than doing it by the way while watching our favorite movie;
  • Challenge ourselves – in order to achieve the desired effect and shape our body and muscles and to get rid of the extra weight, we have to load our body. Whether at the gym or at home, weight loss exercises should effectively load our muscles, speed up our pulse, and yet represent a certain difficulty for us;
  • Diversify the training exercises – no matter how effective an exercise is, if we perform only a limited number of repetitions, our muscles will soon become used to it and our workouts will not produce the desired result. Efficiency lies in diversity;
  • Train all muscle groups – besides being varied, weight loss exercises at home should involve all muscle groups. Let us not underestimate, nor give priority to certain parts of our body. The beautiful, well-maintained body is harmoniously developed, so let’s choose comprehensive weight loss exercises for the whole body!
