25 weight loss exercises for body fat burning

You sometimes feel the need for alternative exercises, don't you? This may happen when you find that the gym is way too busy and you can't get to do the weight loss exercises for body fat burning that you need. It may also happen that you are exercising at home with only one set of adjustable dumbbells, and you feel the need for some alternative exercises.
Are there some alternatives which you can use in place of dumbbell presses, dumbbell rows, split squats, etc? There are about 25 exercises which will qualify as weight loss exercises for body fat burning. (I have used the term 'about 25,' because the number is more than 25. There are 27 exercises, to be precise!)
I have classified these under three categories.
Scenario 1:
You are at the gym on a busy Monday night. You find that all the dumbbells are taken. But your super set requires the use of dumbbell rows and stability ball leg curls. You do not have to feel frustrated! You can do quite a few weight loss exercises for fat burning, using a pull-up bar and a smith machine.
Using the smith machine, you can do the following exercises:
1) inverted rows
2) underhand inverted rows
3) inverted rows with your feet on the ball
4) inverted rows holding the ends of a towel hung over the bar.
You will also get advanced grip strength by doing the last mentioned exercise.
Using the pull-up bar, you can do the following:
1) eccentric pull-ups
2) regular pull-ups
3) sternum pull-ups
4) chin-ups
5) side to side pull-ups
Scenario 2:
You are unable to do dumbbell chest presses because all the benches are taken. Again, you do not have to give up. The alternative fitness exercises available to you are:
1) push-ups
2) close-grip push-ups
3) decline push-ups
4) elevated push-ups
5) off-set push-ups
6) push-ups with your feet on the ball
7) push-ups with your hands on the ball
8) Spider man push-ups
9) pike push-ups
10) decline close-grip Spiderman pushups
As you should know, the last one is probably the hardest two-hand push-up of them all.
Scenario 3:
You have only one set of dumbbells. But your super set calls for dumbbell chest presses and dumbbell split squats. Yet, you are keen on doing the chest presses. Here are some exercises for your legs.
1) One leg lying hip extensions for beginners
2) high-rep Bulgarian split squats for advanced
3) high-rep split squats with your front foot elevated 4-6 inches
4) One leg dead lifts
5) One leg squats onto bench
6) One leg squats standing on the bench
7) Deep step-ups
8) Reaching lunges
So, if you have the inclination, there are several alternative weight loss exercises for body fat burning available to you.
