How to lose weight fast and get toned simply by completing these home workouts

Having a healthy weight loss doesn’t require any fancy gym memberships or expensive personal trainers.

In fact, there’s a lot you can do in your household to burn belly fat and it can even help you to achieve some nice muscle tone.

The NHS recommends people ages 19 to 64 should be doing at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, five times a week.

And it is important to divide all your muscle groups into different days to allow time for rest and recover.

But if you need a quick and simple full body workout then you can try blast a few exercises in one go to get it all out of the way.



People can complete a simple home workout to save time and money

Here are six simple exercises you can complete at home:

1. Cross Body Mountain Climbers

Targets: Abs, lower back and hip muscles

How to do: Get into a push-up position, extend the legs so that your body forms a line from your head to your ankles.

3. Jump squats

Targets: Legs

How to do: Stand with feet shoulder width apart and your arms at your sides.

Squat deeply until your knees are parallel to the floor and your behind is in a sitting position.
