How to Lose Weight Fast with Easy Home Workout: Fitness for Busy Moms
Whoever claimed that being a homemaker is easy has never had to live through the sheer exhaustion of being one even for a day. Because when you are the one not only making sure that all the children are taken care of while also helping your husband out, you probably never have a moment of peace. You wake up before everyone in the house does, clean, cook breakfast, pack your children’s and your husband’s lunch, get everyone ready for school or office and, before you can have a breather, start preparing for dinner while taking care of other household work. What this means is that this way you hardly have enough time to take care of yourself. So in case you have been planning to start working out, the exercises need to fit right into your extremely busy schedule. Keeping that in mind, we have come up with a few workout ideas to lose weight fast that even crazy busy moms like you can follow.
Here are some of those ideas:
1. Tricep Dips
This one is a little different from the others on this list. Instead of focusing on multiple areas at the same time, it takes care of that one area that seems to cause a lot of women much worry. As is evident from its name, this one focuses primarily on the tricep area of your arms. This is the area right below your biceps and tends to get flabby easily. So this particular exercise can actually strengthen that bothersome part of your upper arms.
Like the other exercises suggested on this list, tricep dips are again very easy to do. To find out exactly how to do it, you can watch this video:
You can also follow the following instructions instead:
For your beginning position, sit down on the floor and put your palms face down on the ground behind your hipbones. This way, they should specifically rest right under your shoulders.
You may proceed by bending your knees and placing your feet under them. Lift your hips off the floor. This is the position you start with.
Now go on to twist your elbows to slowly lower your stomach area. Make sure you stop just before your bottom touches the floor.
Broaden your arms and push on your foot sole areas to come back to the beginning position.
Now push back with the soles of your feet and brace with your arms to get back to the position you began with.
Repeat a few times in sets of five at most. Increase the number over the course of the next few weeks as you get more comfortable with the motions.
Studies often claim that what makes squats stand out among its counterparts is how it not only helps you fortify your muscular strength but also helps reinforce two huge muscle gatherings, namely, your quadriceps and your glutes. And the best part is it’ll help you lose weight fast in the areas you hate the most – namely hips, thighs and calves.
So while it will be extremely tedious and painful in the beginning, it will be very worth it if you actually end up adding it to your workout routine.
Have trouble with squeaky knees? Do not worry. If you do it well, squats will not only not harm your terribly weak knees but also help in strengthening the muscles around with next to no bad effect on the joint itself.

Or follow these instructions instead:
Spread your legs to the width of your hips.
Put your arms forward and go through the motions of sitting down with actually sitting. Keep repeating this motion as you dip as low as you can go to make the highest point of your legs parallel to the floor. Stand back up in the same position as before. Repeat.
Push-ups too are another very good exercise that you should consider adding to your routine. They serve multiple purposes by strengthening not only your chest muscles but your back, abs, glutes and arms at the same time.And did I mention, they’re great for losing weight fast around these areas?
Push-ups themselves are very simple and easy to do.
To know how to do it, give this video a watch:
Or follow these instructions:
Lie down flat on the floor with your face facing the ground.
Put your hands palm flat on the floor and on either side of your face so that they align your shoulders.
Use your toes and your hands to slowly lift yourself above the ground to a 45 degree angle. Make sure your knees remain straight and don’t bend.
Once you go as high up as you can go in this position, slowly let yourself down again. To do this, twist your elbows and lower your chest and hips at the same time until the point that your elbows are at a 90-degree edge.
Repeat this motion in sets of 5 in the beginning.
You can slowly increase the number of push-ups in each set as you get more used to it after a few days of working out. Remember not to over work yourself. Every week, you can work on your position better and increase the number of push-ups in each set by 5.
