Weight Loss Exercises
|Weight Loss Exercises|
Diet and exercise are two words that people always hear. If you want to lose weight, then these two things are a must. But what do you do exactly? What is the best exercise for weight loss? This answer depends on you. The best exercise will be the one that can get you to keep doing it consistently enough for you to get the results you want. I can tell you that running on a treadmill is the best but if that is boring to you and will only make you end up quitting, then it’s not the best one for you. You will need to find something that you somewhat enjoy doing.
Here is a basic routine that you can do. You will want to do this first thing in the morning before you get breakfast so that your body goes for the stored fat on your body as a source of energy. If you eat anything, your body will use that instead. You can drink some coffee if it will help you wake up a bit. What you will want to do is either run on a treadmill or use a stationary bike. Before you start this weight loss exercise, you will want to make sure that you stretch out for about 5-10 minutes. This will help prevent any injuries.
After you are done stretching out, you will start off on the treadmill or stationary bike slowly in order to warm up. This should be about 10 minutes. Once your body gets warmed up, you will start going at a steady pace. The best way to do this is to get a heart monitor in order to measure you optimal heart rate level. You will want to get up to that level and stay there for 30-45 minutes. After you’re done, do some more stretching to cool down. Don’t eat anything for an hour after you workout. This will help you burn even more fat.
So that’s the aerobic section of your weight loss exercise. The other section will involve weight training. The reason you want to do this is because building muscle will help you burn fat even when you aren’t doing anything active. You will want to start slow and do about 4-6 sets of each exercise with 12-18 reps each. You will want to work on your chest, shoulders, and triceps one day, biceps and back on another day, and legs on another. So basically, you will be working out 6 times a week alternating aerobic and weight training days.
This exercise and weight loss regimen will definitely give you the results you want but only if you keep up with it long enough to see those results. You will want to look at this as a long-term goal and not some short term fix. To get a more specific weight loss exercise program, you will want to perhaps hire a personal fitness trainer. There are a lot of different weight loss exercises you can do that can be quite fun.
