You can choose to go to a gym and pay a monthly fee to use their equipment every time you want to exercise, but what if you don’t have the time or the money to burn on gyms? The obvious answer is to find ways to workout at home.
The good news is, with the right diet, workouts don’t need to be overly strenuous to help you lose weight. In fact, you’re much better off making them fun. In the “Playtime” module of the Salvation Diet, Chris Walker explains…
“In this module we’re going to cover the importance of exercise or as I like to call it, playtime. To be clear, 90 percent of the way you look is based upon the food you put in your body. It’s important to move your body as well, which in turn clears your mind. Lack of playtime is responsible for twice as many deaths as obesity says a recent study. Since my clients come in all shapes and sizes I’ve created a three-tier exercise system to suit any fitness level.”

And working out at home does have its advantages…
You won’t have to worry about carving out the time to make it to the gym, fighting for your turn on the equipment, or paying high membership fees. So if you’re looking to get in shape, here are some good exercises to do at home to lose weight fast that require little to no equipment.
Single Leg Balance Stick
This balance exercise helps you improve strength in your core and legs. Here’s how it’s done:
Start by balancing on your right leg while you hold your left foot behind you. Begin leaning forward, lifting your left heel to the ceiling without bending your body. Make sure you bend your standing leg slightly so your knee doesn’t lock. To better maintain your balance, pick a spot in front of you to focus on.
Start in a push-up position, making sure your hands are directly under your shoulders and lower yourself into a typical plank position: balance on your forearms (keep your elbows under your shoulders). Return, one arm at a time, to your starting push-up position.
Maintain a straight body for the whole exercise and repeat the motions about 20 times, alternating the lead arm. This exercise can be a bit daunting at first, so take your time. To lower the difficulty level for this exercise, lower your knees to the floor so you’re in a modified push-up position.
This exercise is great for losing weight and works out your whole body. Start by standing straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Next, bend down into a squat as far as you can. Instead of rising up normally, exit the squat in a jump.
Repeat the exercise several times. This is a great cardio workout that keeps your heart rate up. For this particular exercise, the deeper the squat, the better the result.
Another good exercise to do at home to lose weight fast is skipping rope. It’s especially effective on the thighs and stomach. Plus, it’s a ton of fun.
Using a jump rope, skip rope for 30 seconds, making sure you jump with both legs at once instead of one leg at a time. Remember to keep your back and knees straight during this workout to get the best results.
For this exercise, start by getting into a standard push-up position and be sure to hold your body straight. Bend your elbows and lower your chest to the floor before returning to your starting position.
If you’re just starting out and find push-ups difficult, lower your knees to the floor. For a more intense workout, elevate your feet on a step to put your body on a slight decline.
So there you have it: five good exercises to do at home to lose weight fast. For more workout ideas and to keep things interesting, consider home gym equipment or fun exercise videos.
