Indoor Exercises to Lose Weight


Everybody wishes to have a perfect figure these days. As more and more people are conscious of their weight and overall health, weight loss is on everyone’s mind. There are several plans and programs that advocate a quick and easy weight loss with the help of natural as well as other methods. Fad and crash diets top the list of plans that promise weight loss in a couple of days and weeks. However, these are usually harmful and come with a share of side effects.

If you wish to go for healthy methods, you need to follow the traditional diet and exercise routines. It is believed that cycling, running, power walking, etc., can help in burning calories effectively. However, there are also certain indoor exercises that are equally effective.

Indoor Exercises to Burn Fat

Regular workout in the gym is one of the easiest and safest way to lose weight. Apart from that, swimming is quite effective. Of course, if you have the luxury of swimming pool indoors, you can consider swimming regularly.

Cycling is one such exercise where you can lose weight off your arms, thighs, and can also tone up your abs. But sometimes it may not be possible to cycle outdoors. In that case, you can invest in a good exercise bike. Exercise bikes can be used to cycle indoors and lose weight within a short period of time.

Step Aerobics
Steeping or step aerobics is another exercise to burn belly fat at home. You can even buy a CD of step aerobic and follow it. Other ways, a simple stepping up and down for 10-15 times every day can also be helpful.

Crunches help in toning up your abdominal muscles and losing weight. Among several types, you can go for the diagonal or oblique crunches as they are the most effective ones.

Jogging on Spot
It’s chilly winter, then it’s raining, and you cannot go out for your run or jog. In that case, you can run or jog on a spot, indoors, and continue it for 5-10 minutes. A treadmill can be used for that purpose. Doing jumping jacks for 5-10 minutes will also be helpful to get rid of the belly fat.

Climbing Stairs
Another easy exercise to do at home is climbing the stairs. Walking up and down the stairs for 4-5 times can help in getting rid of the belly fat. You can do it slow at first and increase the speed later on.

Lastly, dancing is another effective indoor exercise. You don’t need to be a pro in dance for that. Just put on some fast-paced music of your choice and start moving your body. You can even put on a CD and follow the steps as shown in the video. Just remember to continue to do it until you sweat (around 20-30 minutes).

Apart from these, pull ups and push ups are also effective and can be performed at home. Lastly, one should note that it is better to consult the doctor or a certified trainer before going for any rigorous exercise and diet programs. These easy exercises, along with a proper diet, will help in keeping you fit. Good luck!
