How are you doing? Somehow it’s becoming difficult for me to write posts nowadays. There are so many tasks to be done at home due to Coronavirus scare that by afternoon one is almost dead. Though I feel at times that this Covid-19 came to us as a blessing. All of us realized the value of staying in the practice of working at home with our own hands. In most of the families, we saw men also sharing the burden of household chores with the women. Just hope now they realize how much a housewife or homemaker struggles to keep the household running smoothly.
Most of the people who were regular gym-goers got affected due to the Covid-19 lockdown for months altogether. We focussed on home workouts while posting on our blog so that we could assist you in staying fit. You can check our tips on home workout during lockdown here…..
The gyms are still not open fully so we thought of suggesting a few alternatives for fitness freaks. I realized that there are a lot of options to exercise and lose weight if you don’t like going to the gym.
So, in the series – Top Exercises To Lose Weight, I will keep sharing various activities that can help you lose weight without getting bored.
Top Exercises To Lose Weight At Home
Calories Burnt: 800 calories/hr
Step Aerobics is a lower body workout. This means the target areas are legs and hips. Generally, all good gyms do have step aerobics classes at a pre-decided time. Otherwise, you can join an aerobics center. Step aerobics are great to tone the lower body. I find it difficult to do it for 1 hour at a stretch. It’s better to start with half an hour and gradually increasing it by 5 minutes until you hit an hour. I can bet 15 days are sufficient for you to notice the change.
Calories burned per hour: 500 calories/hour
This is Fun + Workout. Zumba is too exhaustive, requires great energy levels.
Calories Burnt: 400 – 1000 calories/hr
The calories burnt during bicycling depends on your speed. You can go up to 1000 calories an hour. Bicycling outdoors is a good workout with fresh air. In case you do not wish your neighbors to see you working out :P, you can invest in a good bicycle exercise machine. Then, you can workout even while watching your favorite daily soap. By the way, what is your favorite daily soap :P? Okay, enough blabbering!
Calories Burnt: 360 cals/hr
We are born to walk. We walk all the time except when we are sleeping or glued to our laptops. This is the easiest exercise. A brisk walk is a wonderful cardio for legs, tummy, and hips. If you sprint or walk on an inclined surface, you will burn all the more calories.
Calories Burnt: 800 calories / hr
Swimming is my favorite exercise to lose weight during summers. I just love water :). Its a full-body workout and you need not worry whether your arms are getting toned or not, whether your tummy is getting shrunk or not!
Cleaning the house
Calories burned per hour: 200 cal/hour
This is the most boring exercise and I absolutely hate it :P. I read somewhere that if you clean your house with Vaccum or do Jhaadu Pocha :P, you can burn up to 200 calories an hour.
