How to burn fat fast
Choosing the right weight loss methods will help you shift the pounds in a flash
ISOMETRIC WALL SQUAT WITH CALF RAISE
Working out is a surefire way to fight fat, but some methods of exercise are far more effective than others. For example, using compound exercises - which incorporate major muscle groups - target a larger amount of muscle fibre, therefore give the metabolism a bigger kick up the butt. The following workout uses compound movements to torch calories, and you don't even need a fancy gym membership to get the most out of it - just your own bodyweight and a wall.
Perform the following exercises back to back without rest for the best results.
Isometric wall squat with calf raise
Works: bottom, legs, stomach
Lean against a wall with your feet in front of you and gradually slide down the wall so you’re sitting in an imaginary chair. Making sure your knees do not extend beyond your toes, push straight up onto your tiptoes, squeezing your calves at the top. Pause, then slowly lower your heels back to the floor. Repeat 15 times, then slide back up the wall.
Works: shoulders, back, core
Stand with your back against the wall, with your core contracted and the backs of your elbows, forearms and wrists against the wall. Slowly slide your arms up in a small arc until your hands are above your shoulders, keeping your elbows in contact with the wall all the time. Lower your arms to the starting position and repeat.
Press-ups against wall
Works: chest, shoulders, arms, core
Stand facing the wall with your feet together. Take a step back, then place your hands flat on the wall at shoulder height, with your fingers facing up and your hands shoulder-width apart. Engage your core, then lower your chest towards the wall by bending your elbows. Stop when you are a few centimetres away from the wall, pause, then push yourself back to the starting position.
Works: bottom, thighs
Start facing the wall and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees, so you lower into a slight squat, then jump up as high as you can and tap the wall with your fingertips. Land with soft knees and a firm core, then jump back up straight away. Try to reach the same point or higher with every jump.
