If you eat healthily with a balance diet plus these workouts, you’re sure to have the ability to drop two dress sizes in about 6 – 9 weeks. When you do these workouts constantly, you’ll be rewarded with a super looking sensational body!

Push ups

Good for: shoulders, triceps and core, chest

Place both of your hands on the ground. The distance should be shoulder width apart.
Make sure that your arms are straight but your elbows are unlocked.
Bring your feet together.
Your legs should be straight, with your toes and the balls of your feet touching the floor.
Now, your body should be neutral and in a straight line.
Take 1- 2 seconds to lower your body to the ground with your neck in neutral position.
Your chest should nearly touch the ground and your upper arms should be parallel to the ground.
Pause for few seconds.
Push yourself back up to the initial position, and remain this position for about 1- 2 seconds.

Note: Do 2 sets of 10 – 12 repetitions. If you’re a beginner, try to do this by resting your knees on the floor. It’s always good to challenge yourself by taking varying distance between your left and right hands.

Alternating Forward Punch

Good for: upper body, muscles and core

Stand with your feet. Make sure that the distance is shoulder width apart.
Use your right arm to punch forcefully straight in front.
Start punching with other arm while you begin to pull it back towards your body.

Lower your body until your left knee is nearly touching the ground but avoid touching the ground.
Pause for few seconds. Bring your left knee forward and stand up straight.
Use your left leg to step forward.

Return your feet to the squat position, before returning to a stand position.

Note: do 3 sets of 10 – 15 repetitions. Jump as high as you could while kicking back your legs from the squat position.

Bonus Added Exercise

This workout was an idea of Swedish coach Gosta Holmer who developed it in 1930s. This is truly a fat loss workout routine as it helps to burn off your fat by utilizing your fat stores, glucose/ sugar level.

Stride at 70% of your maximum speed. This can be done by opening up your pace, considering you take longer steps for about 20m.
Without stopping, sprint for another 20m where you go all out at 100% maximum speed.
Now, lower your speed and switch to striding mode for about 20m.
Cool down by jogging for about 40m before walking 20m.
Rest for 1 minute and repeat again.

Note: Do 3 sets of this exercise. While jogging and striding, ensure that you land your heel and push off using your toes. Land on the ball of your feet upon impact with the ground and lean your body slightly forward while sprinting.

Final Remark

Warning: For chronic patients and people who’re 60 and above, you should seek your doctor’s approval before doing these workout routine.

Good luck and stay in health!
