Wall Squat Another great example of a easy weight loss exercise that is geared to the beginner. There is much debate as to exactly how many calories you could burn, but, the main consensus is about 5 to 10 calories for each minute of wall squats. You could add weights, and burn even more calories.
Side Plank Great way to build core strength while also burning calories. For a 200 pound person, just one minute of side planks can burn around 15 calories. If you would like an added challenge try lifting your other leg for an added challenge.
Pushups Are you worried about getting fat arms? Well this is one of the best exercises to burn arm fat and strengthen the upper body. It may be difficult at first, until you are able to build up your strength, so, I recommend doing “knee push ups” or, even easier doing wall push ups. They are a great way for the beginner to build up enough strength to be able to do your classic pushup. You can expect to burn somewhere around 30 calories depending on your weight.

Windshield Wipers The trick to this one is to have your back flat on the ground and slowly raise your legs, then move them side to side.
