"Squat with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and point your toes outward at an angle," says Murdock. Be careful not to let your knees past your toes when you squat. Squat while extending your arms over your head and pulling down. Maintain good arm form and stop at shoulder level."
Lunges are great for leg strength, but let's add a tap out. This variant engages your inner thighs and improves balance, making it ideal for weight loss.
This next workout strengthens your upper body and promotes weight reduction. Stand with feet wide apart and toes turned out, then squat. Swing your arms out to the sides and above as you rise, working your arm muscles. Murdock advises extending legs and lowering arms with palms facing down.
Classic pushups work the whole body. Your chest, shoulders, arms, and core are strengthened while you lose weight. Try diamond or incline pushups to mix it up. These exercises challenge diverse muscle areas and keep workouts interesting.
Planks work your entire body, especially your core. Try side or forearm planks to spice things up. These variants reduce fat, tone obliques, and increase endurance.
