Focus on These Types of Workouts
That doesn't mean you shouldn't exercise, because it can absolutely speed up your results and make you stronger and more confident. Many people turn to steady-state cardio like running for a straight 30 minutes. Although it will burn calories, it's not the most effective workout for losing weight.
ACE-certified fitness instructor John Kersbergen said, "The most efficient way to get results is to do some form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) for a total-body workout and to focus on strength training certain body parts (upper body, lower body, core) on different days of the week."
For strength training, bodyweight exercises could be enough — like squats, for example — but adding weights will get results faster. Also, focus on "total-body compound movements that recruit more muscles and burn more calories," such as dumbbell thrusters. You only need to do 45-minute workouts three to four times a week to get results, so try this 45-minute HIIT workout.
