When losing weight, most people want to know the quickest way to slim their waistline. Although a healthy diet plan will help slimmers lose pounds, combining this with fat-burning exercise will get quick results. A quick exercise routine and burn calories and help slimmers shape up, according to Krissy Cela, personal trainer and founder of Tone & Sculpt revealed. These are the top five exercises for fat loss.
When exercising for weight loss, Krissy explained the importance of pairing cardio moves with ones that will build muscle.
She told Express.co.uk: “Cardio is fantastic for weight loss don’t get me wrong – especially HIIT – however, strength training is essential to build beautiful lean muscles.”
She revealed the top exercises which can build muscle and burn fat quickly.
1. Mountain climbers
Krissy said: “From a plank position, bring your right knee to your chest, keeping your right knee elevated. Then, bring your right foot back to plank position with your toes touching the ground.
“Quickly reverse the move, this time bringing your left knee to your chest, keeping your left foot off the ground.”
2. Star Jump Floor Touches
“Begin in a relaxed stance with your feet shoulder width apart and hold your arms close to your body.,” Krissy explained.
“To initiate the move, squat down half way touching the floor and explode back up as high as possible. Fully extend your entire body, spreading your legs and arms away from the body.”
3. Dumbbell press into shoulder press
Krissy said: “Hold both hands close to your chest with your legs hip-width apart and core engaged. Descend by flexing the knees, refraining from moving the hips back as much as possible.
“This requires the knees to travel forward. Ensure the knees stay in line with the feet. When the upper legs contract, drive your hands upwards and raising them above your head.”
“Put your hands on the ground, feet on the floor and knees tucked in towards your chest and jump your feet back into a push-up position. Jump your feet back to the starting position, and then jump with your hands in the air.”
5. Ski jumps
“Start off with your left leg behind you and to the right so your thighs cross, bending both knees as if you were curtsying,” Krissy said.
“Make sure your knee is aligned with your front ankle. Jumping in the air and landing on your right side and repeat the process, as if you were skating from side to side.”
If hoping to pair this with a healthy diet plan, Krissy explained the importance of eating a varied and balanced diet.
She said: “Honestly there is no specific diet plan I would recommend, it is all down to you and your mindset.
“If you want to look and feel at your best, your body needs a healthy balance of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats.”
Some exercises can burn more calories than others with squash, running and playing rugby can burn nearly 1000 calories in just one hour.
