How To Do Some Exercise At Home

Home exercise routine...?

I want to lose some thigh fat and belly fat.

What exercises can i do to lose that? I started doing jumping jacks, but i can only pretty much do that for 30 seconds until i get really tired. What other things can i include in my routine? I have stairs in my house, so i was thinking maybe like 30 seconds of jumping jacks and then run up and down the stairs like 5 times (<---that's the best i can do right now ):) ?

And everyday add like 10 seconds to the jumping jacks and 2 times to stairs???

Does that sound good? And then after, i can do some belly and thigh exercises.

Does that sound like a good routine? I mean, will that make me lose weight? I dont know i just need some routine to follow because everyday im like "im gonna go exercise now" and once im done doing the jumping jacks, i waste time wondering what type of a workout i should do now.

What are some exercises i can do at HOME for this?? (pictures!!!)?

What are some exercises that I can do at home to replace walking?

Hey, great question! I've got two types of workouts I typically recommend in this case.1) Bodyweight Strength TrainingThis workout is focused on building overall bodyweight strength. It can be also used to stimulate muscle gain if you're eating enough. It has 3 tiers (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) and I'll paste them below:Beginner Bodyweight RoutineBox Squat 1×10Glute Bridge 1×10Knee Push-up 1×10One-Arm Dumbbell Row 1×10Front Plank 1×30 secondsIntermediate Bodyweight RoutineFull Squat 1×10Single Leg Glute Bridge 1×10Push-up 1×10Inverted Row 1×10Front Plank 1×60 secondsAdvanced Bodyweight RoutineGoblet Squat 1×10Hip Thrust 1×10Feet-Elevated Push-up 1×10Strict Inverted Row 1×10Rotating Three-Point Plank 1×10Each routine is intended to be done as a circuit. Do 3-5 total circuits depending on time. It should take 10 - 40 minutes depending on which you do and how many rounds.Each exercise links out to a youtube video (not mine, just ones I've found). I've also written out detailed form guidelines for the entire routine here: Metabolic Resistance TrainingThis is also a bodyweight workout, but it's aimed at burning a lot of calories in a short amount of time (instead of building strength). MRT workouts typically revolve around doing complex exercises for high reps with little rest.This is the kind of workout you really want to do to burn calories efficiently.Here is an example MRT workout:Knee Push-ups 1x15Bodyweight Squats 1x15Bicycle Crunches 1x20Mountain Climbers 1x20No rest between sets. Rest 30 seconds at the end of the round and do 3-5 total rounds.I've written a much more in-depth guide on MRT workouts (including how to create your own) here: should do it for you! Happy to answer any follow-up questions.

How to loose weight doing exercise at home only ?

First of all, warm up by doing some cardio. Like jumping jacks, touching toes etc.

Then you can listen to music and skip rope for 30 minutes. You burn 300+ calories! if you don't have a rope, then you could always pretend you have one and still jump.

Remember to keep going until you're really tired. Like, push yourself. You don't need to do it for 30 minutes straight. You can do 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon. And eat 1200 calories + a lot of water and green tea. And I can assure you that you will get the body that you want! :) oh and it's better if you only weigh yourself once a week. That will give you a much more accurate answer on how much you've lost. Our weight fluctuates too much on daily basis. Anywhere from 1 - 5 pounds.

What are some sprinting exercises you can do at home?

Sprinting has everything to do with upper arm strength! Without your arms pumping you, you will not go very fast! So do lots of push ups!

Also, running "high-knees" for short distances (like in your backyard) and working with medicine balls are great ways to exercise.
