How to Get More Activity To Lose Weight

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

If you want to lose weight, it is a good idea to have both aerobic exercise and weight training in your exercise routine.

  • Select a time and place
  • Exercise requires time. It requires that you make your workout a priority. Therefore, you need to plan where, when and how much you are going to exercise.

  • Start out, slow and build up.
  • If you are new to exercising, or you have not exercised in a while, it is important that you don’t over do it. Start out, slow and build up your time and intensity.

  • Choose something fun that works for you.
  • It is important that you do an exercise activity that you enjoy. I love to run and weight train. My wife loves to read her Kindle while using the elliptical. Find something and do it!

  • Make 30 Minutes to an hour your goal
  • It is important to exercise 30 minutes to an hour, four to five days a week. Make it your goal.

  • Record your progress
  • If this helps you, it may be a good idea to track both what you do and your results. Track calories in a weight loss journal, keep track of exercises on a chart, and write down your weight daily on a calendar. Is this necessary? No it is not. However, many people find this to be useful in their weight loss and fitness endeavor.

    If you want to lose weight it is a good idea to add more physical activity into your daily routine.

    Lift Weight to Lose Weight

    Thursday, February 10th, 2011

    A new study confirms that strength training is an important in shedding the body of extra weight.

    No doubt, aerobic exercise burns calories. However, the body’s metabolism quickly returns to pre-exercise levels, within 30 minutes.

    Resistance training, according to the researchers, leads to increased calorie burning for up to two hours after the workout is over.

    There is a downside. Weight training usually results in a corresponding increase in weight due to increased muscle mass.  Therefore, there needs to be a balance between weight training and cardiovascular activities to get the best benefits.
