The Best Fat-Burning Workouts
Working out on the hCG diet isn’t a requirement, but you are free to do so if you wish. As a result of rigorous exercise, the body produces endorphins, which gives you that “high” feeling after a good workout. This feeling is also associated with the feeling of contentment after consuming chocolate. The boost in serotonin levels will improve mood and alleviate stress levels temporarily. If your goal is overall health and fitness, here are some quick fat-burning workouts that you can do anywhere:
1. Jump rope
Jumping rope is not the easiest exercise to execute, but is quite possibly the best full body exercise around. As you jump, contract your core and keep it tight. Use your arms to swing the rope around quickly but in a controlled manner. The control you exert will ensure that your muscles are contract and engaged, not just swinging around uselessly. Lastly, the legs. The legs will keep you balanced, and landing softly on your knees also takes a fair bit of strength. If not, you can land badly and fall forward or backward.
If you don’t have a jump rope, a squat can be just as good for you. This is great for people who aren’t too keen on jumping, but would still like to get in a full body workout. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your torso upright. Squat down as if you were to sit on a chair, with your knees not going past your toes. Go down as low as you can comfortably go, before rising back to starting position. To increase difficulty, hold your arms out in front of you.
The plank is another excellent full body exercise that burns fat and builds muscle at the same time. You may think that the plank is a core exercise, but is actually an exercise that recruits almost all the muscles in the body at once. Lie down prone on the ground with your elbows braced in front of you. Keeping your spine in a neutral position, use your core to keep your back braced and use your arms and legs to stabilize. To increase difficulty, raise one of your legs in the air and balance.
