Now that Christmas is over and most of us have made that New Year's resolution to exercise more and eat more healthily, there are some fabulous fat burning exercises to blast those bulges into oblivion that you will love. I love exercising and there's no better way to start the new year than with some great exercises to motivate you. After all, summer is just around the corner, when we all want to look our bikini best, and these routines (combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle, of course) should help you on your way! For this fabulous fat burning workout, beginners should do 3 x 10 reps. Those who feel they're less of a beginner but not at the advanced stage yet should do 4 x 10 reps. The more confident and advanced amongst you should do 5 x 10 reps. These exercises will require a couple of dumbbells, although a couple of cans of food or filled water bottles will do if you don't have any. A stability ball is required for some of the fat burning exercises too.
1. The Squat Press
This is one of my favourite fat burning exercises, and it will leave you feeling great and looking fabulous. This first exercise is great for your shoulders and bottom. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding 6 kg dumbbells at either side of your face. Squat down as low as you can go, then push up to standing whilst extending your arms towards the ceiling. Then lower yourself back to the starting position. Make sure your feet stay flat throughout and avoid tipping forward.
