Simple exercise tools to help you burn calories

Here are two simple exercise tools that you could consider purchasing and keeping in your home (or even car!) so that you can get in a quick workout when time allows you to. Alternatively, if you have a scheduled workout routine, you could try to include the use of this equipment in it.

Jump rope

Jump ropes are often underestimated when trying to find ways to improve one’s fitness and burn calories at the same time too! In fact, it is a very common exercise tool that is used by boxers, athletes and other sport professionals too. Using a jump rope can be a fun way to spice up a boring and uninteresting weight-loss workout and best of all, it can help you strengthen and tone your  shoulder and back area, whilst burning calories!

Resistance bands

Resistance bands are such a convenient exercise tool to keep with you. According to Lifehack.org, you can use one to perform a simple rowing motion by pulling the band around your feet and moving your hands in a rowing motion, whilst sitting on the floor. This exercise can give your back and shoulders a fabulous workout!

Experiencing discomfort?

Always stop if you experience any discomfort or pain and remember that the more fit you are, the more comfortable you will feel when exercising.
