5 Fat Burning Exercises

Dec 31 2021 Published by kyu7 under Uncategorized

With only seven exercises you can do a complete, at home, fat burning workout. And no, you don’t need a big, lunky piece of cardio equipment to do slow, boring aerobic training.

Many people don’t have time to consistently go to the gym and want to workout at home. But how many exercises can you do in your workouts at home with dumbbells? I have put together some training options you can do at home. The options include dumbbell workouts and exercises that need no external resistance. I have provided many options so that even a home workout can have variety.

In fact, this entire workout can be done with only your bodyweight, but for a more advanced challenge, you can use dumbells in certain exercises.

The workout doesn’t use any machines either, because this allows you to use more muscles per ecxercise when you do standing exercises or push-ups instead of the pec-dec at your local gym.

Here’s the workout.

1) bodyweight squat

2) pushup or kneeling pushup

Do exercises 1 and 2 back to back with no rest. Aim for 8-12 repetitions per set. If you are advanced, you can use dumbells for the squat and even harder pushup, such as decline pushups to increase the difficulty of the workout. For beginners, stick to bodyweight squats and kneeling pushups.

Do the squat and pushup back to back without rest, but rest 1 minute before repeating the exercises again. Then rest a minute, and repeat one more time. Then you will have done this superset (that’s what it is called when you do two exercises back to back) 3 times.

However, beginners should do all exercises in the entire workout only once. Only advanced fitness levels can use the 3 superset system.

3) split squat

4) mountain climber

A split squat is also called a stationary lunge. That requires you to split your feet apart by taking a step forward. Use the wall for balance if you are a beginner. If you are advanced, you can hold dumbells in your hands during the split squat. Do all repetitions for one side and then repeat for the other side. Drop your hips straight down and use your glutes and hamstrings and quadriceps to push your body back up. Do 8 repetitions per side.

For the mountain climber, get into a pushup position. Brace your abs as if someone was going to punch you in the stomach. Maintain that during the entire exercise. Lift one foot off the ground and bring that knee up to your chest. Touch the foot down. Slowly return to the start position. Alternate sides for 10 repetitions per side.

Do exercises 3 and 4 as another superset, and do it 3 times – the same way as above – only if you are advanced.

5) Reverse lunge

Finishing Your Basement With Style

Dec 01 2021 Published by kyu7 under Uncategorized

Finishing your basement is a huge step. You have added great value to your home and added living space. This new space can be used as a gym, home office, master or guest bedroom, family room, music room, media room, or any other purpose you consider. There is a variety of questions asked before moving forward with a basement remodel.

Continue reading and read your questions being answered.

What Materials Should I Avoid When Finishing My Basement?

There are certain building materials and furnishings that are not recommended for your basement, as some building materials and furnishings can attract dampness and moisture causing mold, mildew and foul odors.
These can include any organic materials such as wood, paper, paint, drywall, carpet, and other similar items. The problem lies in their composition being the perfect breeding ground for mold upon the introduction of moisture! No one wants mold in the basement, so be careful in decorating and furnishing your basement-especially if it hasn’t already been waterproofed.

Wondering what kind of flooring is acceptable? Well, there are plenty of materials that look like wood and carpet, but are inorganic-perfect for the basement.

I want to hang drapes in my basement. What is appropriate?

Many homeowners tend to select drapes for their basement. They believe the drapes will be an added bonus to help keep cold air for entering the home in the winter months and warm air from entering the home in the summer months. This is true to some extent, but homeowners should avoid using heavy drapes, as heavier drapes are more likely to make your basement darker and retain dampness and moisture.

Are you tired of driving to and from the gym? Are you looking for a more convenient way to work out?

Then consider making your newly finished space a home gym or fitness center. It is one of the easiest transformations. Basements tend to be naturally cooler than the rest of your home. This is due to being partly underground. Basements tend to be spacious and wide open; which provides an ideal space for gym equipment.

A gym or fitness center in your basement could include a stationary bicycle, treadmill, a rowing machine or free weights. It would also be ideal for a larger weight room.

Enjoy yoga, boxing, kickboxing, or zumba? Have your basement finished and designed for any of these routines. Have the mirrors, mats, and maybe even a little nook to cool off and enjoy some water. Your friends will love this space! Maybe you’ll have to charge for weekly classes!
