5 Super Easy Exercises That Makes Fat Disappear
Looking to lose weight? Many people are. It’s a two-step process involving changing you’re eating habits and exercising. A lot of people find it easier to eat healthier but exercise?
It may be exciting in the beginning but after a while most find the routine boring or it leaves you so sore the next day, you give up. Gymnasiums will tell you that although many sign up for one year, very few continue after less than 3 months.
You don’t need an expensive gym membership, not to mention the hassle of traffic and overcrowded machines, to get all the positive results exercise will bring you. All you need is a little floor space.
These are some easy floor exercises that almost anyone can do, no matter what kind of shape you are in. After doing these for just a few days, you will start to feel great, not sore and stiff. Here is a list of the 5 easiest floor exercises that will have the fat melting off your body in no time. Read also about vital exercises you should do.
1. Knees to Chest
Lay your back with your hands slightly under your hips, knees bent.
Raise your legs to your chest, and then back to the floor. Don’t let your hips leave the floor, only your feet, legs, and buttocks should be moving. This isn’t a strenuous move, but you will feel it in your abs.
2. Push Ups
These are old fashioned but still very effective. Lie face down on the floor, placing your hands flat on the floor.
The closer your hands are together, the easier you will find it. Use your arms to push your body off the ground.
If you are not strong enough, just push yourself to your knees, or even just get your chest off the ground. Your upper body strength will improve with time.

Although these have a reputation for being killers, they don’t have to be. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, which isn’t much. Don’t put them out further as you can damage your knees.
Now, bend your knees as if you were going to sit in a chair. If you feel like you might fall, put your arms out in front of you, or gently place your fingers on a table or chair to keep your balance.
When your thighs are close to being parallel to the floor, stand up again.
If you find you can’t squat that far, only squat as far as you can. You will find these get much easier to do very quickly as your body gains strength.
Here’s another exercise with a bad rap for being hard to do.
You see people doing lunges at almost every walking path as a way to stretch their muscles, you should think of it the same way, not a difficult exercise, just a nice stretch for your legs.
Stand with one leg in front of you, the other behind you; not too much, about one step should do it. Bend the knee that’s in front of you as far as you can while you keep your back leg as straight as you can, then stand up again.
How easy is that?
5. High Knees
Almost like Knees to Chest but standing up. Not only is this exercise good for almost all your muscles, but it can even be considered cardiovascular if you go fast enough!
Get yourself in a comfortable standing position, and then bring one leg up as far as you can, all the way to your chest if possible. It’s OK to use your hands and arms to pull your leg up further.
Put that leg down and repeat with the other leg. Do this as many times as you can until you are breathing hard. As you get use to this exercise, try doing it as fast as you can and watch your heart rate go up as your weight goes down!
Exercise doesn’t have to be difficult, time consuming, or expensive. Just get up off the couch and get started!
