Chasing those hardcore workouts to get in shape? So be ready for a dhamaka as we are about to drop a fitness bomb on you. Undoubtedly, these high-intensity workouts lead to great results, but in hindsight, there are these low-intensity—or rather, zero-intensity—moves that can bring amazing results. For example, there are several holds that help you lose weight faster than running.
Yes! We’re not kidding. They may seem simple to pull off, but the kind of energy you need to hold this pose is jaw-dropping. That’s the reason, you can run for 10 minutes straight, but you can hold a plank or a squat for so long! Now do you see what we’re talking about?
If you want, we can bring your attention to some tricks to lose weight and tone your muscles super fast. Come and try them all one by one.
Tone your entire body with these 10 super-shedding supports
the boards hold
If you really want a strong core then you just can’t skip the plank. The longer you hold, the faster you will lose that fat around your belly area. The kicker is, don’t stick with one type of board. Add variations to target every inch of your belly area. Doing 10 rounds of 1-minute plank is a great way to start.
If you want your butt to be firm and well sculpted along with your belly, the bridge is a great choice. Doing 10 to 15 1-minute rounds can really set your butt and belly on fire. You can add pulses to finish the movement.
Just curling your biceps isn’t going to give you those super toned arms. You need to add biceps to it too. The best way to do this is while you’re doing your last biceps curl. Just hold it in the middle for a minute and then finish the set. You will feel the burn instantly.
Similar to what you did in a bicep curl while lifting for your last crunch, don’t go all the way, but hold this crunch somewhere in the middle for a few seconds to maximize the effect. You can also crunch in another way. Same count, 10 rounds, 1 minute each.
There are many variations here as well. You can opt for a normal squat, wall squat, sumo, and even the last squat after growl reps. Squats will definitely tone your legs sooner than you think. 10 rounds of 1 minute each is all you need.
low flex retention
Doing push-ups is one thing, but maintaining a low push-up posture is another. But we definitely recommend this one because it works on the entire upper body at once. Just when you come down into this pushup, try to hold your body for 3 to 5 seconds and push yourself up. The burn you feel in your arms will increase the impact in many folds.
Calves lift the hold
So, no movement here. You lift your calves and hold. In between, if you like, you can give a pulsation or two to release the tension and that’s it. Do 10 rounds of 1 minute each.
Lunge is a great way to tone your thigh muscle. Just remember that when doing a lunge, your knee must not touch the floor, otherwise you will lose tension in the muscle.
If you can’t do push-ups, it’s mostly because of stiff upper body and low arm strength. To work on this, install a rod in your house and hold it as long as you can. Not only will this make your upper body stronger, but it will also help you burn some fat in that area.
Side Shoulder Raise Grasp
Last but not least, the lateral shoulder support. You can do it with less weight. Just hold the dumbbells lately and that’s it. The longer you hold it, the more tension you will feel in your upper arm and you can tone that area faster!
