Reach Your Ideal Weight Fast With This Daily No-Equipment Workout

Getting to your ideal weight can be a challenge. Whether you've tried diet, exercise, or both, there's no denying the struggle of trying to shed extra pounds. If you've tried spending hours in the gym in the past or endlessly cutting calories without seeing results, don't worry, I've got you covered. If you're struggling to reach your ideal weight fast, my biggest recommendation is to do daily workouts and eat a high-protein breakfast every morning. If you don't have a gym membership, don't worry. This daily no-equipment workout can be performed in your own home without the need to purchase anything.

Adding a daily workout has many benefits for reaching your ideal weight. The calories burned will help maintain a deficit. Resistance training will stimulate muscle growth. Finally, the endorphin boost you get from daily workouts goes a long way toward improving your mental health and overall well-being.

Perform each exercise for 45 seconds, then take a 15-second break and move to the next exercise. Perform three to five rounds of this routine every day. Read on for this no-equipment workout that'll help you reach your ideal weight fast, and next, don't miss Drop 10 Pounds Fast With This 10-Minute Daily Workout.


Jumping Jacks

If you lack equipment, jumping jacks are a great starting point for a bodyweight exercise routine to help you lose weight. You can manually increase the intensity of the exercise by speeding your tempo up and being purposeful with each repetition. Do not allow your arms to be limp noodles, and be sure to jump as wide as possible with your feet. A half-baked jumping jack set can be a waste of time; a high-intensity, purposeful exercise session with jumping jacks revs up your fat-burning engine and kicks off an amazing HIIT circuit.

Planks with Shoulder Taps

Core training is a must for any good workout program. Planks with shoulder taps are among my favorite core exercises for several reasons. The isometric strength you build by keeping your body in a plank position helps support and improve your lower back health. Adding the instability that occurs as you tap each hand to the opposite shoulder activates the oblique muscles and other deep core muscles that can get overlooked in traditional ab exercises.

Squats are an amazing lower-body exercise you can perform with zero equipment virtually anywhere. Because squats use the larger muscles in your lower body, they burn a ton of calories and give a metabolic boost after the workout, assuming you use enough intensity during each set.

Begin with your feet wider than shoulder-width distance apart. Sit your hips back and down as you push your knees outward for stability. Lower until your thighs are parallel to the floor, then push through both feet to stand back up. Find a rhythm with the movement, and aim to keep your tempo for the whole interval. If you need extra intensity, perform jump squats.

Pushups are great for shoulder, chest, core, and arm strengthening. Additionally, when performed as part of a circuit routine, they give a solid metabolic boost to keep your body burning more calories even after you've completed the workout. Begin in a plank position, and lower your torso, hips, and chest to the floor as a single unit until your chest is about one inch off the floor. Push through both hands to return to the starting position.

Lunges are another staple lower-body exercise you can perform equipment-free. I recommend alternating lunges for this circuit.

Begin standing with your feet shoulder-width distance apart. Step forward with one foot, and lower yourself toward the ground by bending both knees. As your back knee approaches roughly one inch above the floor, push through your front foot to stand and return to the starting position. On the next repetition, perform the same movement using the other leg, and alternate back and forth for the interval.

If there's one exercise I completely hate doing but love the results, I have to give it to burpees. Burpees are a full-body power movement that includes multiple lower and upper-body explosive components.

Begin this exercise by standing with your feet shoulder-width distance apart. Jump up with a slight countermovement, and explosively raise your arms overhead. As you land, drop down into a plank position. As your feet touch the floor in the plank, quickly hop your feet forward until they are underneath you. Explosively push through both feet, and jump upward, raising your arms overhead. As you land, drop down into the next repetition. Try to find a rhythm with the movement that you can sustain for the full 45 seconds.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

Reentry Anxiety Is Real - Why You May Experience It as Stay-at-Home Measures Ease

When the coronavirus stay-at-home orders began in March, most people's lives changed in immeasurable ways. At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious. What Is Reentry Anxiety? The short answer is that "post-lockdown anxiety is real," said Dr. Balu Pitchiah ,
