So you’ve just purchased your first ever at-home fat freezing kit.
It’s an exciting time!
No more stubborn belly fat, love handles, or loose weight around the arms and/or legs. And although it’s not required to work out while freezing your fat away, you want to get the most out of your kit and do something a little extra to lose that fat for good.
If you want to see even quicker results when using your kit, and feel like an absolute goddess/god when those problem areas start disappearing, use these simple exercises depending on what area you’re trying to lose fat off of, to become a slimmer, more radiant you.
Focus on Aerobic Exercises for Stubborn Fat
Aerobic exercises are one of the best workouts you can do to lose that stubborn body fat. These exercises aren’t focused on gaining muscle—although it does help build muscle in some areas—but focuses on burning the fat, and allowing it to stay gone.
Aerobic activity requires fat to be used as a primary fuel source, with carbohydrates and protein being used to a smaller extent. If your main focus is to stop the belly fat at its source, just as your at-home fat freezing kits will do, aerobic is the way to go.
Oxygen, fats, and carbohydrates combine together to produce a fuel source for all your cells, but because the body has far greater fat stores compared to carbohydrates and proteins, fat is a far mor efficient fuel source and will last longer while working out.
Aerobic activity also has a ton of benefits, both for your body and for your health. Some benefits include;
- Increase in metabolic rate
- Burns fat directly
- Strengthens lung function
- Increase in metabolic rate
- Increases red blood cells
- Reduces stress and tension
- Positively impacts mental well-being and self-esteem
- Increases circulation throughout the body
Aerobic activities are simply cardio workouts. So think of cycling, jogging, running, swimming, etc.
Exercises for Belly Fat and Love Handles
The best workouts when trying to get rid of that belly fat is, honestly, walking. An hour of walking (the same amount of time wearing your fat freezing wraps) every day can do wonders for your metabolism.
One hour of rapid walking a day can lead to one pound of fat loss a week. It’s even better to walk on an empty stomach, burning up to 20% more body fat than sweating it out after a meal. When you walk without food in your belly, your body is then forced to burn stored nutrients and fat as fuel, allowing your body to get rid of the fat that’s already in there.
Yoga is another great aerobic exercise you can do, and in the comfort of your own home. When the body is stressed, cortisol is released. Cortisol is a stress hormone that’s been shown to contribute to belly fat. Yoga is peaceful in nature, and not only will it ward off an accumulation of belly fat, but can also help you develop mindfulness, which helps in cases where we over eat.
Exercises for Arm/Leg Fat
Two great exercises for that excess arm flab are jumping jacks and soup can bends. The motion of doing jumping jacks gets your arms moving in a motion that burns the fat and tightens your arms. By focusing on burning fat rather than using weights and focusing on muscles, you will be able to lose the flab that often gets stuck there.
Soup can bends work the same. You just hold a soup can with both hands, raise straight up, and bend behind your head. The light weight of the can will help in shaping your arms, and as most of us have some type of can in our pantry, it’s easy to get ahold of.
Two great leg workouts to help that stubborn fat in the thighs are squats and cycling. Squats are an excellent form of not only losing the fat, but gaining that muscle back in your legs from the fat that now stores there. Squats can burn more fat, make real-life activities easier, maintains mobility and balance, helps with waste removal, and is beneficial for your entire body.
Cycling is also great not only for your legs, but for your entire body. You heart, blood vessels, and lungs get the workout they need. It’s also good for strength and stamina, increases cardiovascular fitness, decreases stress levels, improves joint mobility, and decreases body fat levels.
So although your at-home fat freezing kit will do the trick without these small exercises, try these out to get the most out of your kits. Not only will your fat disappear, but your overall health will become something to brag about!
