Weight Loss Wednesday #1

Hello! And welcome to Weight Loss Wednesdays! Excellent, now I sound like a cheesy American ad I can carry on. I’ve been asked by several people what exercises I do that helped me lose weight. I shared an insight here. But I’ve actually upped my game since then so I thought I would share my workout with you.

Please bear in mind that for some people this could be classed as not much so I would say that this is aimed at those who aren’t as fit or are trying to lose weight that are similar to me.

It’s not easy being overweight and doing the following exercises. It’s certainly painful and more often than not I want to sit down, cry and just give up. But hey, that’s life.

I always start with a run, anything from 1 to 2 miles depending on the day and if I’ve done intense exercise the day before. Some days I can manage more running than walking and other days vice versa. This is essentially to get my heart rate up ready to exercises afterwards at home.

This varies a lot. I first started out by doing 3 sets of 5 different exercises for 10-20 reps. This would include plank, squats, press ups, crunches and hip raises.
I have now moved on to supersets which is 3 sets of 2 exercises for 15-20 reps, all done 3 times, so 6 exercises altogether. This includes squats with a bar, chest presses with a weighted bar, ab roller, hip raises, lunges with weights and lifting weights upwards. Bearing in mind these weights aren’t like, we aren’t talking 2kg here!

I’d be lying if I said it was easy but it’s worth it which is the most important thing.

Have you got any fitness tips for me?
