Technology? Genetics? Ourselves? If you would like to shed some pounds, then here are the 7 most effective exercises for losing weight…

7 Walking

Whatever exercise programyou choose to use, it is important that it includes walking. Walking is a good exercise for you. It strengthens the heart and will burn enough calories. This is something you can do anytime, anywhere. The best thing is that you do not even need to have equipment to do this.

6 Interval Training

Whether you have just started or have been working out for a while, adding interval training to your workout is a great idea. This is going to give a boost to your fitness level and will help you shed pounds easily.

5 Squats

Squats are very popular and rightfully so considering they work out your hamstrings, quadriceps and gluteals. So if you have always dreamed oftoned thighs and a derriere to kill for, include some squats in your routine.

4 Lunges

Just like squats, these are going to help work those muscles that are in your lower body. These include the quadriceps, gluteals and hamstrings. This is a good exercise, because it mimics walking. These are a bit more advanced and difficult than squats but definitely worth including in yourexercise routine.

3 Push-ups

Push-ups have always been popular, haven't they? When done correctly, you will be strengthening the shoulders, chest and the triceps. So, you should definitely add these into your routine.

2 Abdominal Crunches

Of course, I am sure you have heard of abdominal crunches. If you want great abs, then you should add this into your routine. This is a good exercise that will target those abs.

1 The Bentover Row

This is a great exercise! It is going to work all of those major muscles of the upper part of your back. It is also going to work the biceps.
