The Slimmer You 1-Month Weight Loss Challenge

Lunge Row Lunge with row works all main muscles. Jones suggests starting your one-month weight reduction challenge with this version.

15 arm reps. Straighten up and put your feet together. Switch sides and repeat the lunge and rows for one to three sets.

Fast squats follow. "Another trick when using exercise for weight loss is adding an HIIT component (high-intensity interval training) into your weight training workout," Jones says. 

"To balance the body again, your metabolic system revs up, you burn more fat, and you expend more calories over a 72-hour period," Jones says.

Your carb reserve—glucose—is used more effectively. This is helpful since you can store more carbs for energy instead of fat. Fast squats can help.

Start again with shoulder-width feet. Bend your knees and sink your rear to pretend you're sitting.
