Cardio is by far the best and most flexible option to shed the extra pounds.
You can pick from a wide range of exercises – dancing, walking, jogging, and swimming just to name a few.
However, to lose weight the fastest high intensity interval workouts burn the most pounds in the shortest time. These involve doing periods of cardio at a very high intensity for a set time, followed by periods of cardio at a lower intensity for a set time – for a certain number of repetitions.
Here’s a video explaining how to use high intensity interval training.
Taking a class at your local gym is a great and fun way to do cardio, something like kickboxing or dance – you’ll meet some like-minded friends too!

One of the most well-known and powerful exercises for toning your upper body.
- Start in a plank position with your hands placed apart just wider than shoulder-width and in line with your shoulders.
- Push your toes into the floor to stabilize your body and keep your spine straight.
- Lower your body to the ground bending at the elbows until you almost touch the floor, then raise yourself up to the initial position.
- Repeat for as many repetitions as you can – you’ll quickly be able to do more and more push-ups. If you are finding them too difficult at the start you can keep your knees on the ground until you build up strength.
This is a great exercise you can do almost anywhere because all you need is a chair or bench! It’s great for toning your arms and shoulders.
- Place your palms on the chair at shoulder width apart with your fingers pointing forward and keep your elbows slightly bent.
- Keep your hips and butt lifted and place your heels on the ground.
