Do You Have Weight Loss Tools at Home?
Some people think they need crazy extravagant weight loss tools to get fit but you have what you need already at home! Here are 5 weight loss tools to get you started!
Weight loss tools you already have…
Did you know that more than one-third of adults in our country are overweight?
To make this number easier to digest, imagine a home party with thirty people in a room. No matter how careless and happy these people might look, the truth is that around 10 of them are struggling with weight loss.
If you are reading this article, chances are that you do not want to be one of them, and you are ready to take actions to become the fittest version of yourself.
Keep reading to learn about five unexpected things you can use to slim yourself down.
1. Use cans of beans or other pounders
Not only are they comfortable to hold, but they tend to be a perfect weight for a workout. Cans of beans or any other pounders you might find at home are great for both aerobic and upper-body exercises. To be more specific, you should hold one can in each hand with palms facing your body. Then, you should lift both cans straight out until the moment they reach the same level as your shoulders.
Experts claim that 25 reps of this exercise are enough to feel a slight burning in your shoulders and upper back.
2. Get a book for your core’s sake
If regular crunches are not giving you enough tension and result, it is time to use the power of books. Find a heavy book and put it on your chest while doing traditional crunches. This simple action is going to make the world of difference to a well-known exercise.
Alternatively, you can lie on your back and hold a book in your hands, when keeping your arms above you. While rather effective on its own, this exercise can make wonders to your lower abs if completed with a heavy book.
3. Test hula hooping
Not only it sounds like some kind of magic, but it can also do magic to your body. Especially, if you are one of those who fight against some belly fat. Usually, it gets a couple of weeks of regular hula hooping to see the first results in a mirror. However, if you need scientific proof, then you will be glad to know that only 10 minutes of hula hooping can burn up to seventy calories.
A lesson to be learned: work out for more than 10 minutes per day to finally wear those skinniest jeans of yours.
4. Discover the perks of exercise balls
It can be rather problematic to keep a huge exercise ball in your apartment. The good news is that you do not need the biggest ball to get the most of your results. Virtually any fitness store has a variety of exercise balls to choose from, so a lack of space at home can no longer be an excuse for not working out. Choose the size you prefer and go for a set of exercises with this bright toy.
5. Jump over a paper towel roll
Although the most motivated sportsmen do not need a reason to jump higher, you might find it more interesting to put a paper towel roll on the floor and jump back and forth over it for at least 1 minute. While sounds easy, it can be a great alternative to a classic cardio workout.
One simple thing to remember: get your knees higher to get better results.
Armed with all healthy weight loss information written above, you are ready to turn your own home into a gym.
So, instead of searching for reasons to stay lazy, search for more interesting items to workout with.
Combined with a sustainable diet, a couple of months this way will definitely improve your health!
