Workouts for Weight Loss

Slim down and firm up with these workouts and exercises designed to help you burn calories, banish cellulite, and lose weight.

News flash: You don't have to overhaul your life to work off mega calories.

These exercises will burn fat, tone muscle, and boost your metabolism. This all-over makeover will help you lose weight in just one month!

You get out what you put into your workout. Unfortunately, many women are putting in the wrong moves, bad form, and—let's face it—a little bit of Instagramming between sets.

Skipping these muscles will do more than make you look lopsided. It will throw your body out of alignment, up your risk of injury, and limit your exercise performance, calorie burn, and results.

To do cardio first, or weights? That is the question. But before you can answer it, you need to know your goals.

No woman walks into the gym hoping to blow her time on so-so-results.

Second-guessing your HIIT workouts? Not so fast. A new Finnish study found all that pounding and jumping is doing your body some serious good.

Slamming weights. Bodybuilders with mammoth biceps. Shouts and screams.

This is about as uncomplicated as it gets: These eight compound moves use zero equipment and will fry and firm the flab—fast.

It's time to heat things up, and we don't mean by piling on the layers. Skip the itch and break a sweat instead with high-intensity interval training.

No disrespect to cardio, but if you want to blast fat, get in shape, and rock everything that comes your way—both in and out of the gym—strength training is where it's at. Here's why.

Take a look around your gym: You'll probably see some fellow gym-goers hammering out these exercises. But that doesn't mean you should, too.

Consider these moves the Brussels sprouts of your workout. You hate squeaking out the reps, but the reward (one smokin' hot bod) is well worth it.

It's women's number-one nemesis, but blasting belly fat—and keeping it off—isn't about logging hours on the treadmill. And thank goodness for that.

It's January and suddenly your gym has become the fitness equivalent of Times Square on New Year's Eve (except your trainer doesn't quite have the Ryan Seacrest charm factor going for him).
