Lose Weight With Challenging Exercises

If you want to lose weight and burn fat, do more challenging exercises! Challenge yourself with exercises that test your balance, coordination, strength and flexibility! Step "outside the box" and try new exercises. If you do, I guarantee you will lose more weight and burn more fat!

Try some of these challenging exercises:

1. Incorporate many one-legged exercises such as power step ups (pictured above), single leg squats, single leg good mornings, single leg medicine ball exercises, etc. These types of exercises are more intense than two-legged exercises.

2. Include exercises with your eyes closed to improve limb position sense (proprioception). This will also help you burn more fat and calories!

3. Exercise your body in all 3 planes of motion to improve multi-planar balance. An example would be a grouping of walking lunges, side lunges and transverse lunges.

4. Exercise on different surfaces such as grass, sand, astro-play and soft surfaces to add more challenge.

5. Do combinations of one-arm and one-leg exercises such as single leg squat-to-single arm shoulder press.

6. Jump rope every day using different variations---two feet, one foot, shuffle, etc. Jumping rope is one of the best body coordination exercises out there. And, speed jump rope is even better to burn more fat.

7. Quickness and agility drills will burn fat like crazy and improve your dynamic balance.

Balance training also improves your core strength.

Challenge yourself more and watch the weight and fat melt away!
