High intensity training is one of the latest performance trends that has been shown to improve how well the body converts energy into, what the muscles can use making you train at higher intensities. Although strength training are generally known to help in weight loss, they actually vary, as some may help you to lose weight quickly. Below are some moves to ramp up your calorie-burning abilities.
1. Marching glute bridge
To do this, lie on your back with your knees bent, your feet flat on the floor and your arms rested on the floor. Keep your palms up while you raise your hips till your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees.
Now, brace your abs and lift your right knee towards your chest, maintain for a couple of seconds, then lower your right foot. Repeat the move on the other side and do 10 reps. This helps to isolate the glutes individually and stabilize the core.
2. Low lateral lunge
To do this, stand with your feet about twice your shoulder-width apart, with your weight shifted to your right leg, while you push your hips backward and your body lowered.
Do this as you drop your hips and bend your knees, then keep your right leg perpendicular to the floor and your left foot on the ground. Reverse the movement to the floor and ensure you don’t raise yourself back to stand as you do this. Do 10 reps. This helps to open up your hips while you work your glutes and obliques.
3. Alternating shoulder press
To do this, hold dumbbells next to your shoulders with your elbows bent. Ensure your palms face each other at this point, then lift one dumbbell at a time and keep alternating. This helps the abs work double time and make your body look slimmer.
4. Dumbbell romanian dead lift
To do this, grab dumbbells with overhand grip and hold them in front of your thighs, with your knees slightly bent. Now, bend at your hips so that your torso is almost parallel to the floor, then pause and return to the starting position.
This engages the largest muscle groups in the body to help burn calories fast and also improve posture.
5. Squat Jacks
To do this, stand with your feet hip-width apart, then lower your body until your knees are almost at a 90-degree angle. Then, jump explosively with your legs outward and then jump back to the starting position immediately. Ensure you are swift with this. Do 10 reps.
This ramps up the heart rate and utilizes the muscles to the max. You may want to keep up with this moves to speed up your weight loss process.
