Top 10 Exercises To Lose Body Fat

When it comes to losing body fat, the key is to burn more calories than you are consuming — and there are two ways you can do that. One way is to reduce the number of calories that you are eating and the other is to burn off calories through exercise. While maintaining a proper diet can help you shave off the excess calories in your diet, your body will change significantly faster with a proper exercise routine incorporated as well. Hit the gym several times a week with a fitness regimen that combines both cardio exercise and strength training to burn unwanted body fat.


Best Exercises To Lose Body Fat:

1. Push Ups:


How to do it:

  • Lying down on the floor with your palms down and wider than shoulder width, slowly straighten your arms while keeping your back and legs straight.
  • Exhale as you straighten your arms and inhale as you lower yourself back to the floor.
  • Do 2 or 3 sets of 15 to 20 pushups

2. Burpees:


How to do it:

  • Start in a standing position and then lower down so your knees are bent and your hands are on the floor.
  • Kick your legs straight out behind you so you are in a standard push-up position and then jump them back in to your chest and then stand up.
  • For a cardiovascular bonus, you can add a jump on the way back up to standing.

3. Side Plank:


How to do it:

  • Similar to a plank, but instead of being on both forearms and facing down, you are on one forearm and facing the side.
  • Lift your hips off the floor and hold the contraction in your obliques and abs.
  • Switch sides once you are done. Again, you can modify this by keeping the knee of the bottom leg on the floor.
