Great Summer Exercises to Shed Pounds


Sure you can go to a gym and do this on a treadmill, but why not save money when the weather is great outside! Go for a 1-mile jog every morning before it gets too hot or in the evening when it cools down, you don’t wanna get heatstroke. Jogging is great for shedding pounds as long as you stick to a routine. Also, make sure you take at least 2 days off for rest, you don’t want to overwork your body. Once you’ve established and kept to your routine it is best you keep this up even after you’ve lost your weight because it will allow you to maintain the weight, if you stop you will most likely gain it back.

Jump Rope

This is one of the simplest exercises you could ever do, chances are you have a jump rope somewhere in your house already so there is no need to go and buy one. Summer time is great for this one because you can do it outside, some of you may know that jump roping in the house leads to broken things, so it is best to do your jump roping in the summer. You should do at least 3 sets of 100 reps for the best results (for those of you who don’t know what that means just jump rope for about 10 mins) and again stick to this. Make it a daily thing, it may be tough the first few times but once you get used to it it’s great.


Stationary bikes have become popular lately but what’s the point of a stationary bike in the summer? Absolutely nothing. There should be no excuse for you not to go out on a REAL bike and enjoy the nice warm summer days. An hour or more a day of riding your bike is very efficient at helping shed your weight and toning the legs and stomach. It is also a great way to get some alone time and fresh air.

It’s nice doing yoga in the house but even better if you can find a nice silent spot outside, this way you get the nice fresh air.

Make your routine and stick to it.
