5 Light Weight Training Exercises for Weight Loss

Strength exercise, especially with modest weights, can help you reduce inches or weight.

Single-Leg RDL

We can have twice the fun with unilateral work! Stability exercises are full-body and require your core to fire up.

ALT Goblet Reverse Lunges

This great leg-alternating workout allows for more reps and quick breaks. This exercise pairs well with upper-body pull and two bodyweight motions (upper and lower) in a circuit-style training day.

Half Kneeling ALT Overhead Presses

Not all lean machine movements are lower-body. "Half kneeling in this alternating overhead press stabilizes the lower body and pelvis. We can focus on the vertical press (and feel the heat!) by doing so.

Racked Offset Squats

Plant your feet shoulder-width apart for a kettlebell-racked offset squat. Hold the kettlebell by your shoulder and extend one arm ahead. Squat by bending your knees and pressing your hips back. Push through your feet to stand. Flip and repeat.

Start the suitcase deadlift by standing with a kettlebell or dumbbell close to your foot. Keep your feet hip-width apart. Press your hips back to grab the weight (like a suitcase handle). Push your hips forward to lift the weight and stand. Lower the weight with control. Flip and repeat.
