Despite the name, you don’t really need to do this using a chair. Stand up with your feet apart, breathe, and raise your arms over your head. If you are sitting on a chair or leaning forward, your torso should lean forward over the thighs. Hold the position for 5 breaths. Return to the starting position and switch sides.

5. The standing side stretch

When trying to lose weight, it is important to understand just how your body works. When exercising, you don’t just get energy from fat, but also carbohydrates and protein, and where you get it from depends on the exercise you use. During higher-intensity exercises, you will normally get energy from carbs. During long, slower exercises, you normally draw energy from fat. In other words, pacing yourself when exercising isn’t just a convenience, it can help you in the long run.
