People who want to lose weight often ask other people about the best exercise to lose weight, but never did anything to lose weight. So next time you got asked by someone about the best exercise for losing weight, ask them back; would you do it?
Timothy Church, MD, MPH, PhD, a professor at Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, La. Once said that the best exercise is any exercise that will help you sweat a lot. From then on, you just need to keep doing it day after day and you will notice one day that your body has transformed into a sexy and hot body.
Two of the reasons, why people failed to lose weight are because of injury and laziness. You can lose weight if you burn more calories than you consume. All those talk about going to the gym will not help you to lose weight. You need to go there and work hard regularly. After months of working out, you will see the result you want if you are serious with working out.
Most self-proclaimed experts will tell you that you need cardio to lose those pounds off your body. It is true that cardio workouts will help you burn those fats, but the moment that you stop working out then the fats stop burning.
Strength training will give you a lasting result better than cardio as you build muscles that enable you to burn calories even while resting. What it means is that the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn. However, that doesn’t mean that you should never do any cardio workout as it is good for the heart and other body organs. Combining strength training with cardio gives you the best result for losing weight.
A word of advice, if you haven’t been in a gym before, hire a personal fitness trainer to help you out with the workouts as you need them to correct your posture when exercising. Good posture needed while working out to minimize injuries. Personal fitness trainer can also help you plan your next meal as they have an idea on what you should be eating.
