9 Light Weight Training Exercises For Weight Loss

Bodyweight Squats

Bodyweight squats are a great leg and glute exercise without weights. Bend your knees and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart before returning to the beginning position.

Dumbbell Lunges

Hold a dumbbell in each hand and lunge forward with one leg while keeping your back straight. Alternate legs to work both sides.

Dumbbell Rows

Standing with a dumbbell in each hand, bend your knees slightly, hinge at your hips, and lean forward, perform dumbbell rows. Squeeze your shoulder blades and pull the weights to your hips before lowering them.

Bicep Curls

Fully extend your arms with a dumbbell in each hand. Bend your elbows to curl the weights toward your chest, activating your biceps, then drop them.

Tricep Dips

Use a bench or sturdy chair for Tricep Dips. Sit on the bench edge with your hands clutching it and fingers pointing forward. To work your triceps, bend your elbows and lower your torso, then push back up.

Plank Rows

Hold a dumbbell in each hand while planking. Keep your core engaged and hips stable as you row one dumbbell up to your hip. Swap sides.

Russian Twists

 Sit on the floor with bent knees and elevated feet. Twist your torso while holding a dumbbell or weighted object with both hands to engage your obliques.

Lateral Raises

Hold a dumbbell at your sides for lateral raises. Work your shoulder muscles by raising your arms to the sides until they are parallel to the ground and then lowering them.

Hammer Curls

Dumbbells with palms facing each other are used for bicep curls. This version works biceps and forearms.
