Routines to lose weight at home

In some cases, the confinement caused by the coronavirus has brought with it many changes in people’s customs. The fact of spending all the time at home has caused them to eat more than normal and has reduced activity considerably, so many people have been gaining a few extra pounds.
To prevent this from continuing and to achieve a healthier lifestyle, in the following article we will show you some exercise routines to lose weight, and best of all, you can do it from the comfort of your home.

1. Heating

Before you begin, it is important to take some time to warm up to prepare your body to perform the exercises and avoid injury. A good starting point is to warm up the joints: shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, ankles, and knees. This is accomplished by making slow movements. And, at the end of the routine, it is important to relax the muscles and the whole body, to avoid discomfort and release tension.

2. Squats

We begin the routine with a pair of squats standing in front of a chair, legs apart, feet slightly outward. The exercise consists of simulating sitting lowering the body without the knees exceeding the tip of the feet and pulling the hips back.
Place your back straight and your chest wide open. When climbing, keep your heels flat on the floor. Repeat the exercise 15-20 times. Once the technique is achieved, you can do it without the chair.

3. Lunges

For the next exercise, you should stand with your feet well supported, feeling the weight of your body. Right back and arms loose at the sides of the body. Start by taking a long step forward, bending your knee with your torso straight, forming a 90-degree angle, just as in the squat, keep your knee from going over the ball of your foot.
Return to the starting position by pushing hard on the floor with your foot. Do the same with the other leg. Perform the exercise alternating one leg and the other. If you want to intensify the work, you can add weight on your hands with a pair of dumbbells.

4. Burpees

Burpees are the most dreaded exercise of all, and yet they are great for helping us lose weight.
To perform the exercise you must start in a squat position (or squats), place your hands on the ground and keep your head upright. Then move your legs back with your feet together and do a push-up. You must keep your back straight and touch the ground with your chest.
Then gather your legs to return to the starting position. The movement must be fluid, so it is important to work on coordination. Finally, from the starting position, lift your whole body in a vertical jump, raising your hands. You can slap above the head and return to the squat position to repeat the exercise. The number of sets and the rest time between sets of burpees will depend on your level: beginner, intermediate, advanced.

5. ABS

To close your exercise routine, a series of sit-ups is perfect. Lie on a mat on your back, with your back flat on the floor and your legs bent.
Place your feet firmly on the floor and your hands, with the fingers crossing, resting on the nape of the neck. Take off your back to shoulder height, concentrating your strength on your abdomen, without straining your neck and supporting your head with your hands. Perform 2 or 3 sets of 15 to 20 repetitions, pausing between series and series for as many seconds as repetitions have been performed.

Remember that losing weight should be a safe and healthy process, be patient and carry out a progressive development in your exercise routine and follow the process of a balanced diet.
