Weight management and self-image is an issue that we have all dealt with at some point in life or another. A lot of us make plans each year to lose weight, get fit and carpe diem only to see them abandoned a few months in.
Mostly, our lack of motivation let us down and that is why working with a personal fitness trainer is a good idea. However, it is also often the kind of exercises we choose to do. If you don’t get beyond the simple pumping iron bit, you can have your motivation fall flat pretty fast. So, for this year, we thought it might be a good idea to chek out some great ways to burn calorie and get back into your ideal shape. Here are our top picks for the best weight loss workouts for 2019:
We know what you’re thinking! “I am a peaceful person and don’t like violence”. We agree on that one but hear us out! Kickboxing is great cardio for everyone and requires little to no investment in tools at all. You just need to hit a gym or get a personal trainer with focus mitts on. Then you can pound away the calories while also working out some sweet combinations. Now that is a double whammy of fat loss and confidence boost right there.
Rowing is actually more fun than you might think it is at first glance. There are many collegiate and even state level competitions for rowing all over the US and rest of the world. That’s because it can be an exhausting exercise which burns of more fat than most weight machines in a standard gym. We’ve all seen those five-man rowboats with guys with glistening arms and shoulders. And yes it is quite beautiful. You can also enjoy some very scenic views while rowing in your local lake or river. And in case you don’t fancy getting toppled over, there is a rowing machine out there just waiting for you to get on.
if you are looking for a low investment workout for your weight, this is the right one. Stairmasters need just one thing to work and that is available literally everywhere – stairs! And for those of us who are really not sold of waiting to see results for weeks, those extra few steps each day count a lot. Just set your goals and top yourself in each session. You will be amazed just how much you can lose when you swap pounds lost for steps climbed.
We’ve been going gaga over battle ropes like the rest of the world for a while now. What is so amazing about this exercise is that it takes the entire body’s strength and it conditions everything. This is great for those who are looking to burn of the maximum number of calories in the shortest time. Be careful about battle ropes as it is very easy to go overboard and get cramps when you cool down. It is important to you where to stop and where to give those extra few whips to the ropes.
So, Which One Should Be Your Go-To Weight Loss Miracle Workout This Year?
Honestly, all four of these workouts have their own strengths to offer. We would recommend that you start with one which you think suits you best. Rowing for example is mostly upper body. So, when you are confident about that, you can move to any of the other three. Also, consider getting a personal trainer to keep you motivated. Weight loss gains get more distance between them over time and it is great to have someone who can motivate us to keep going. Stay motivated and get yourself into a shape you can be proud of this year!
