Ways to Exercises for Weight Loss


It is a common theme: what are the best exercises to lose weight? Because if you put in the work, you might as well get your money’s worth!

Whenever I talk to beginners or people who want to lose weight, they say: “I just start with Cardio, and once I lose weight, I start doing strength training.”

I understand that the thought of doing everything at once can be overwhelming, but strength training is not only a big part of weight loss and well—being-it’s the key. The best part is that it’s easier than you think and it often only requires your body weight.

Don’t get me wrong; I’m a big Fan of Cardio! I like how I feel about it and I like the satisfaction of seeing how many calories I burned, how many steps I took and in which Zone I trained.

But when it comes to long-term weight loss and definition: Strength training is great!

Below I will review four strength training exercises to lose weight. All four exercises are bodyweight exercises and do not require any equipment.

Best strength training exercises for weight loss

Muscles are metabolically more active than body fat. In other words, muscles burn more calories per day than body fat at resting heart rate. The more muscles you have, the more calories your body burns every day.

In addition, muscles are more compact (denser) than body fat and give your body a sculpted and toned appearance.

It’s never too after to start bodybuilding, and the following weight loss exercises are a good place to start!

First of all: use your body weight! These exercises will help you build muscle, lose weight and feel better than ever. Here they are:


Push-ups are one of the best bodyweight exercises ever invented. They do not require any equipment, build strength in the right places, have many variations to keep things fresh and are easy to modify and track progress.

You can burn calories while working out several muscle groups while shaping your body.

How many push-ups a day to lose weight?

The honest answer to the number of push-ups per day is really – it depends. Muscle building is about challenging yourself enough for your body to develop its strength.

As we know, building strength is all about straining your muscles. When this happens, your body responds by building more muscles. So there is no magic number for the number of push-ups needed per day to lose weight. Rather, it is the total time during which you challenge yourself to do push-ups for more than a week, for example, or to build strength to build muscle.

Focus on tracking your progress, such as how many push-ups you can do back to back or how many repetitions of push-ups you can do in 3 sets.

For most of us, doing push-ups several times a week leads to muscle gains, but push-ups alone are probably not enough for someone looking to lose a lot of weight.

Yes, if you did them continuously, you would burn a ton of calories, but your body would get tired very quickly before the benefit of burning calories occurs.

The Push-up is an incredibly effective movement and should be part of your weekly bodybuilding routine. However, push-ups alone do not offer the many benefits that come with difficult fitness routines, such as increasing your metabolism and slimming down.

Be sure to combine your push-ups with a consistent Cardio schedule and you will lose weight in no time.
