Recently my best friend has gained a lot of weight and now he’s quite upset over the fact that I’ve started to tease him by calling him a stuffed potato. Seems quite funny but I was actually very worried about the fact that he has gained quite a lot of weight.
Losing weight is much more difficult than gaining. You can gain weight within just a week, but if you’re not working out right, it might take you ages to lose the same amount of weight.
So just like my best friend I’m sure there are a few men out there who still need some help with some gym workout routine to lose the extra pounds out of their body. So here is a guide to gym workout for men to lose weight—
- Deadlift – The reason I suggested you Deadlift as the first exercise because it is the best way to start your fat burning process. If you’re a beginner, then start with 10 reps at the beginning and gradually increase the reps with time. How to do it? Well, it’s simple. Just stand behind the barbell. Make sure to lift it the right way. All you have to do is, keep your shine, back and hips straight. Now, push your hip forward and lift the bar; but do not bend your back. From upright push your hips back to the lower bar. But make sure you bend your knees slightly.
- Sit ups – Sit ups are my personal favorites. Although the first time it took me a hell lot of time to get used to it, but it’s the best option to burn the fats around your belly. I feel that keeping it simple and fighting the body weight is the ideal way of burning fats. How to do it the right way? Just bent your knees and lie down on the floor. For better strength, make sure to hook your legs onto something so that it doesn’t move while you’re doing sit ups. Now place your hands behind your head and tense your core as you lift your torso up so that your upper body forms a V shape with your thighs.
- Barbell Lunge – Well, 12-15 lunges per session will make sure your quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings get pushed to the edge. Though the first time it will hurt, but your metabolism level will hit the highest level. How to do it? Simple. Choose an appropriate weight and then place the barbell on your back. Now the first thing you need to do is to step forward with your right foot and sink yourself into a lunge. Now both legs are bent and make sure your back knee is as close to the floor as possible. After that just drive yourself back up and repeat the same on the other side.
- Bent over rows – Bent over rows speeds up your fat burning power and actuates your muscles throughout the body. Now how to do it? Hold a dumbbell on your hands and bend your knees slightly. Now hinge at the hip in order to make your upper body parallel to the floor. Don’t forget to keep your core tight and your back straight while rowing the weights up to your chest. Lower down and repeat the same.
These are a few tips for you to lose weight. Follow the guide with a proper diet plan and you can get amazing results within a few days. Good luck!
