The gym is where people usually go for their exercises and workouts. It is a good thing especially when you consider the associated benefits of having a trainer, the effect of training alongside others can really be motivating. However, there are many people who desire to shed fat but cannot afford the gym. It is also good if one has the training equipment at home. That is expensive also.

There are a couple of weight loss exercises one can do even at home without spending any extra money and still get the desired results. For you to effectively exercise your body, you need to know the specific part(s) of the body that a particular exercise is targeting. You also need to alternate the exercises so as not to get frustrated or tires by doing the same exercises every day.

Take a good look at the following 5 exercises and create your time table by alternating them.

1. Upper body pushes (push-up and dip alterations)

2. Upper body pull (regular and inverted rows and chin ups)

3. Lower body (squat variations, step ups)

4. Abdominal exercise (reverse crunches, inch worms, or planks)

5. Total body exercise/miscellaneous (burpees or jumping jacks) You need to do these exercises normally. Don’t try to do them very fast. If you cannot do the 5 in a stretch, take 1 to 2 minutes break and continue the next one. When you get used to them, gradually increase the number of sets and repetitions. You do not need to overdo it though as will be counterproductive. If it becomes too stressful, the tendency is that you give up entirely. Don’t let this happen, instead maintain the number of sets you are comfortable with. Don’t do more than 5 sets at a time even if you can. The most important thing is that you exercise regularly.

Another good way to exercise your body is stair-climbing. If you happen to live in a house with a stair-case, you can climb up and down the stairs many times. Don’t hold the rail and move faster when climbing and slower when descending. Dancing! Yes, even though it sounds funny to some people is a great way to exercise and burn fat. It will be best for you if you enjoy dancing. Just make out 30 to 60 minutes each day and dance your heart out. It is fun and does the job.
