Weird Workout Routines That Actually Work

The workout is essential for a happy healthy life. However, most people complain they do not have enough time or they find workouts intense and boring. Experts say that there are so many different variations of workout that you can easily find something that you find interesting and convert it into a good workout. A recent study conducted by Harvard healthy concludes that just a 15 minutes’ walk in the morning is enough to help you stay fit. Staying fit means, you can easily tone your body and you can avoid the chance of most common fitness-related disorders. However, when it comes to weight loss or muscle gain, you need to set a workout routine that you can follow. Most people complain that they do not have enough time for a workout because their lifestyle is very fast paced and they are busy. Experts say that your workout has nothing to do with time but consistency. If you work out for just 15 minutes every day, you will have good enough results. This means that planning is far more important for you than intensity or time.

With the help of this article, we will help you explore some fun options and why they should be an ideal workout for you. We will also help you get rid of boring and lengthy workout routines; we have listed down some of the weirdest workout routines that work

Top 6 Weird Workouts That Actually Work

Dance and Zumba

Dance and Zumba are some of the most popular exercises so far. Our body has a response to the sounds around us, it is very common for us to grove on the music around us. By using dance, you will be able to burn a lot of extra calories and get into shape. Zumba is just the same as dance but you will have to add some easy yet very functional cardio moves that can help you burn all the extra calories.

Inverse Running

Inverse running is a very good way to help you burn more calories in the same amount of time. You are practically using the same body muscles but since they have to be moved consciously, this will be fun and you will be burning more calories. Most people find inverse running much more engaging as compared to normal running.


Gardening is usually not considered a workout however, the way we move during gardening is an excellent way to burn some extra calories. If you have arthritis and you find it hard to move around without feeling too much pressure, you will actually like gardening. This will help you burn some extra calories without impacting your overall muscle movement and making your joint ache from the pressure of your weight.

Run Everywhere

This workout is very simple and although it doesn’t have a designated name it is pretty interesting. While you are working in an office or you are at home, do not walk everywhere, instead, run. This will be the same as a HIIT workout because you will have an intense workout spell followed by a few seconds of rest.

Desk Stretch

Ideal for people who are stuck at 9-5 jobs. You just need to sit on your desk and mimic some basic yoga poses. One of the best ways to do that is to try hand yoga and stretch your neck and shoulder as well. Move it clockwise and then anticlockwise, then hold it for a few seconds and start with the next muscles. Most people love the idea of leg and hand yoga because when you are sitting in a chair for more than 8 hours, your hands and feet get tired


If you pronounce zuu, it will remind you of a zoo, which means animals. This workout was introduced by Australian fitness experts. This workout routine mainly focuses on mimicking the movement of wild animals. Since wild animals have a better range of movement, zuu includes multiple easy yet effective stretching exercises mixed with strength and conditioning exercises. This helps in toning the body by reducing the amount of fat and eventually improves the overall health as well.

Bottom Line

To sum it all up, consistency means you are interested in the workout and this might be very difficult if you just have to follow an instructor. If we look at the evolution of workouts over the last few decades we will see that in the first few decades, the fitness industry was more concerned about the intensity and less about the fun. However, as time evolved, people became more interested in enjoying the workout. As a result, fun workout beats and healthy workout activities were introduced. Now, the workout is recommended for almost all age groups because it is more inclusive. For a very long time, a workout was just recommended to people for health issues. People who were close to their desired BMI were considered healthy. However, studies concluded that even kids with genetic issues, bad diet, or inadequate physical activity needed some workout in their life. To keep everyone engaged and happy, they introduced fun activities that were appropriate for all age groups and helped people to stay fit and healthy.
