Full body exercises that helped Sara burn fat

“Sara has been training with me for over five years now. Initially she did a lot of cardio with a combination of Pilates. She is now regular with her Pilates routine and still does cardio a few times a week and also does electrical muscle stimulation (EMS). Before the lockdown, we trained a lot focusing on the entire body. No two workouts were identical and we focused on developing the body as a whole. Working on all aspects of fitness, like strength, balance, flexibility, stability and endurance, etc. During the lockdown we have been training online. We still work the entire body and manage to squeeze in an effective workout, mostly using the body weight as well as a few props that are easily available like dumbbells or even just using a wall or a chair,” says Namrata.

Exercise you can do at home

not going to the gym is no excuse for not working out. There are many exercises that one can do at home  using your body weight. You don't need nay equipment to lose weight or stay in shape. “The routine of course depends entirely on ones goal. In order to lose weight it is important to eat well (right not less), sleep well as well as train smart. In terms of a workout, when you want to lose weight a combination of cardio vascular exercises as well as strength based exercises are important. Cardio based exercises include high knees, skipping, jogging on the spot etc. Cardiovascular exercises play an important role to burn the extra calories but strength based exercises are also important in order to build muscle mass. There is a whole array of strength based exercises that one can do at home,” says Namrata.
