Weight Loss Tips for Men  -  Time Crunched Style

Are you too busy to exercise? Check out these new tips because they will put you into action whether you are working in the office or at home. In fact, these exercises will give you a rock hard body in a matter of weeks. These weight loss tips will be good for you, whether you are still adjusting to a new job or there is a need for you to lose weight but can’t sacrifice your busy schedules. I’m sure your friends will be surprised to see you getting a leaner and stronger body, and later will ask you for your secret.

These exercises will operate on a two-hour per week workout. This is highly beneficial to your health, since research indicated that an adult must exercise at least two hours per week. So, instead of doing it 45 minutes straight, we’ll have to break it down into 2 to 3 minutes every hour for 5 working days. This won’t require much of your time but the health benefits will be tremendous. This is perfect if you have a private office or room, that no one will see you doing the exercise - the only thing they will see are the great results.

These are your “no more excuses” weight loss tips - time crunched style. The exercises involved are:

  • Squats
  • Push-ups
  • Lunges
  • Single leg deadlift
  • Abs exercise (bicycle, plank hold, or any other floor abs workout)

These are excellent exercises, and when done 2 to 3 minutes will give your heart and muscles a good workout, but I promise you will not break a sweat in an air-conditioned office (ok maybe just a little). You can apply these between 9 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon (one hour interval). So, here are your start-up detailed weight loss exercises:

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday:

  • Hour 1: up to 2 sets of 10 push-ups (or 1 set of 15 squats)
  • Hour 2: 2-minute plank hold (or bicycle crunch)
  • Hour 3: 4 sets of 5 push-ups or 10 squats
  • Hour 4: 3-minute plank hold (or bicycle crunch)
  • Hour 5: 3 sets of 8 push-ups (or 12 squats)
  • Hour 6: 3-minute plank hold (or bicycle crunch)
  • Hour 7: 1 set push-ups or squats but do it as many as you can (but make sure not to break a full-size sweat)

Tuesday and Thursday:

  • Hour 1: up to 2 sets of 6 reps lunges
  • Hour 2: up to 2 sets of single leg deadlifts
  • Hour 3: up to 4 sets of 3 reps lunges
  • Hour 4: up to 4 sets of single leg deadlifts
  • Hour 5: up to 3 sets of 5 reps lunges
  • Hour 6: 10 reps of single leg deadlifts (for both left and right legs)
  • Hour 7: 1 set up to 3 minutes lunges

You will notice that these exercises will give you little time to rest - that’s why they are highly effective, and are among the popular exercises of top weight loss programs. They will surely give you noticeable results. When you become well-adjusted with these workout routines, you can add 1 set at a time.

So, start today your time crunched style workouts that are effective and suitable for busy schedules.

Hi Tony. Glad to hear that. Just in case single leg deadlift is too much, you can apply double leg deadlift (at least 10 reps per set using your body weight).

Good advice here Lemuel. Not everyone has the time to workout as much as they should, but that doesn't mean you have to skip it all together. Just remember to be consistent and the above advice will definitely benefit you.

Wow! that's great. The squats can actually burn belly fat aside from strengthening your legs. If you find out that single leg deadlifts are too much for you, replace it with any floor abs workout. I'm glad you are exercising.

Hell Shawn you read my mind, Lemuel, at my age that would probably kill me. I get a picture in my mind of a well built monster of a man when I read this article, what about something for wimps?

Sheesh.. where does this leave me Rob. I don't want to join the old fart brigade but I feel like I'm wimping out if I use the excuse that I'm a princess. (I hate these authors who give good advice I know I should follow). ;-)

If I followed this schedule I would be in traction. :) Good article Iemual, but I need a guide for guys who have destroyed their bodies.

Thank you. Yes I think I'll make a guide for that. I'm sure it will be focused on low impact exercises - swimming and walking. Low impact exercises when accompanied with stretching will have complete health benefits, even greater than traditional workouts in the gym. Stretching is the most overlooked exercise (the very reason why many missed its benefits) but it increases ability of movement, reduces muscles tension, reduces bad cholesterol, enhances energy, and reduces risk of injury. Although, mild stretching should be applied to an area where there is scar tissue. I hope this will help.

Iemuel, Good ideas! Thanks. I'll add in the idea of hourly. As in hourly doing something! I'm not able to do even one of these particular ones. Then again, not a single one of my muscles looks anything like those here:-) Walking is what does work for me right now! "My" 2 miles today got done. Interesting picture choice. blessings, Cynthia

Thanks Cynthia. Women can actually do these exercises also, although the hardest part would be the single leg deadlifts - but you can replace it with any floor abs exercise. The 2-3 minute workout per hour is a very good option. I'm also glad that your 2-mile walking is giving you noticeable results. Keep up the good work.

Iemuel, Thanks! Yes - still recovering from a bit too much scar tissue from surgery to consider trying those either:-) blessings, Cynthia
