Today, We’re talking about exercise tips to burn more calories.
Today I want to talk about exercise tips to help you burn more calories.
And I think we can all agree that losing weight is not just a step towards looking good and feeling great…
it’s also critical for good health and the older we get the more important it becomes.
Add to that the fact that our food supply is becoming depleted of vital nutrients, trace elements, and overall nutrient density…
In some cases becoming downright toxic…
It’s easy to see why we really do need to pay more attention to our health.
And that includes exercise and activity levels too.
Both nutrition and activity are vital for optimizing your caloric expenditure or calorie burn.
You see, weight loss is all about energy balance, and no, I don’t mean some mystical manipulation of magical forces.
I mean energy from the food you eat to the energy you burn through the day.
Energy balance is measured in calories in vs calories out.
A positive energy balance means more calories in than out.
A negative balance means more calories out than in.
To lose weight, you need more calories out than in this is called a caloric deficit.
One way to do it by following a standard low-calorie diet.
Which simply means you’re taking in fewer calories than you burn each day.
The problem is that this can be hard and uncomfortable. And some methods of diet restriction are actually dangerous.
The fact is…
Diets that use a starvation model are really NOT great for weight loss and they certainly don’t set you up for future success.
Your best off avoiding diets that use starvation as a form of weight loss and use more sustainable methods.
Dieting should be done moderately and mindfully and focused on behavioral changes that can sustain new habits.
Another option is to simply increase your exercise.
Some people would rather just do MORE instead of eating less.
So they opt for an increase in workout frequency and intensity.
It’s the MORE calories out approach.
At first this can be uncomfortable, but with a mindful approach, the right guidance, and a bit of willingness, you can boost your metabolism for healthier, sustained weight loss.
However, there is only so much time in a day. And between all the demands at both work and at home a lot of people don’t have hours to spend working out.
But don’t worry…
Because in the next few minutes I’ll show you five handy workouts that don’t take a lot of time that you can use to quickly and efficiently UP your fat-burning game.
#1 The Box Jump
The box jump is a simple exercise the engages the legs, but also your upper body in order to generate momentum.
You simply stand in front of a strong stable box that can support normal weight and impact, and you jump from the ground, landing on top, engaging in a squat.
After that, you either step off or hop off and continue the process.
The great thing about this is that you can scale it up quite easily, increasing the height of the box as your skill level increases.
You can also mix things up by adding distance, making your box jumps broad jumps, adding a weighted vest, or even additional exercises.

#2 The Burpee
Burpees are amazing high-intensity cardio workouts that will also give you a full-body conditioning workout.
Here’s how to perform a burpee.
Start in a squat position with your knees bent, back straight, and your feet about shoulder-width apart.
Lower your hands to the floor in front of you so they’re just inside your feet.
With your weight on your hands, kick your feet back so you’re on your hands and toes, and in a pushup position.
Keeping your body straight from head to heels, do one pushup.
Remember not to let your back sag or to stick your butt in the air.
Do a frog kick by jumping your feet back to their starting position.
Stand and reach your arms over your head.
Jump quickly into the air so you land back where you started.
As soon as you land with knees bent, get into a squat position and do another repetition.
You’ll definitely feel this one.
Try to complete several reps quickly to get your heart and lungs working.

#3 The Wall Ball
The wall ball is a combination of resistance training and high-intensity cardio.
It involves slamming a medicine ball with maximum effort against a solid wall with a powerful lateral swing.
You can either let the ball drop, pick it up and throw again, or you can try to catch it as it bounces off with enough force.
One big tip is to try to alternate the side you throw from for a balanced conditioning effect.
#4 Medicine Ball Slam
This is another medicine ball workout perfect for a high-intensity workout.
This time, you’re throwing the ball to the ground with a good amount of power.
Once the ball hits, you squat down and scoop it back up.
The throwing phase is great for conditioning your lats and abs.
The pickup phase is essentially a weighted squat, so you’re getting a great leg and lower back work out.
#5 Mountain Climbers
This fast-paced running simulator it a great ab and leg conditioner while also giving your arms a bit of an isometric (static hold) workout.
You go into a plank position, resting your hands on a slightly elevated platform (your living room coffee table if you’re at home).
Once in position, you rapidly drive your knees towards your chest, one leg at a time as if you’re running uphill (hence the name mountain climbers)
Best to do these for time, 2 minutes per set with minimal rest will give you the best effect.
You can switch these up by driving your knees to the opposite side with each step….for example you’ll bring your left knee to the right side etc…
