If you want to lose weight, you need to exercise. Regular physical activity will also boost your overall health and mental wellbeing. But unfortunately, many people are using the excuse of lockdown to get out of their daily exercise session. This can be disastrous for not only your waistline but also for your health. According to a study from the Journal of Applied Physiology, just a two-week break from workout can significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, insulin sensitivity and more. Many experts have also found out that chronic stress and anxiety have a close association with obesity. According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, there is a link between light physical exercises and lower stress, better mood and lower body mass index (BMI). So apart from weight loss, exercise will also boost your health, which is a bonus.
Here are a few low-intensity workouts which will help you lose weight and boost health. And, you can't even use the excuse of space constraint because you can perform these exercises standing in your kitchen while cooking.
Note: Try to walk or jog on the spot for 15 to 45 seconds after every exercise. And don't forget your 5-minute stretch to cool down after you have finished working out.
This workout can easily be performed in the kitchen as it just requires you to jump wherever you are standing before moving forward or backwards.
This is another workout that you can perform inside your kitchen even if it is small.
You must be familiar with this exercise as it is one of the most effective workouts for weight loss. Squats just require you to take a sitting position where there is no chair. This is yet another simple exercise to perform with in your kitchen.
Here, you just need to put one step forward and then backward. It doesn't require a bigger space and can be done quickly too.
The burpee is a full body exercise which is used in strength training and weight loss. The basic movement is performed in four steps and known as a "four-count burpee." Doing this exercise quickly in a lesser number of time can help you keep your weight intact.
