A person’s overall fitness is often associated with his or her weight. A good weight loss program consists of proper diets and exercise. All program works with the principle of calorie deficit. This means that to lose unwanted fats in your body, the amount of calories that you burn during an exercise activity must be more than the amount of your calorie intake. Combined with cardio exercises, a good burst of HIIT activity will result in more calories burned in a shorter period of time and will continue the fat burning hours after your workout. The following exercises are some of the best exercises for weight loss.

Jogging or Running

Running, or jogging, still remains one of the best exercise for weight loss. For a more intense fat-burning run, try integrating a full sprint at maximum speed for about 30 seconds for every 5 minutes of running. As you progress you can then increase your sprint up to a minute for every 5 minutes of regular-speed running.

Jumping Ropes

Jumping ropes, or skipping ropes, can help your lose fats in your abdomen and thigh areas. For your routine, try skipping normally for about 30 seconds then do high-intensity skipping for about 10 seconds. Do this cycle 10 to 12 times for a 5-minute workout.

Squats

Make your squat routine more effective by doing burpees or squat thrusts. While standing, bend your knees and hips and squat down until you can put your palms on the floor. Kick your legs towards the back and make a push-up position. Then, immediately do the movements in reverse and try to jump as high as you can instead of just standing up in the end.

Kettlebell Exercises

Kettlebell swings are great core exercises. Its uneven shape lend to the utilization of the whole body in providing stabilization to be able to counter the weight of the ball. Since you are using your core muscles, the weight loss benefit continues hours after your workout.
