Looking for the exercise for weight loss that’s ideal for you? Here are some weight loss routines that you can try in order to find the best one that you’ll hopefully have fun with as well.
If you want moderately intensive exercise for weight loss then walking is a great choice. It is low impact so you won’t have to worry about too much stress on your joints and muscles. Also, you won’t have to worry about spending on tools and equipment. So really, it’s an ideal choice for those who are considered beginners and for those who don’t want to spend on exercise paraphernalia yet.
And more importantly, walking can be easily incorporated into daily routines such as walking on work breaks, using the stairs to work, or taking your pet, if you have any, for extended daily walks. Start with 30-minute walking, 3-4 times a week then gradually increase the duration and intensity as you improve physically.
As you gain confidence in your capabilities and fitness, maybe you’d want to go jogging and/or running on your next workout? Both are similar exercises but with differences in pace and rate, of course. Naturally, jogging and running will burn calories and fat at a higher rate than walking. Another thing? If your goal is to lessen your belly fat, then running and jogging are very helpful as studies had proven.
Similar to walking, jogging, and/or running can be easily integrated into daily routines. Aim for a 20-30 minutes workout, 3-4 times a week as a start. If you feel your joints cannot take much of jogging or run outdoors then you can try on treadmills with cushioning when indoors or do your running on soft grass when outdoors.
Bottom line? There are many exercises that can help you achieve a good weight. The important thing is to find something enjoyable that will help you stick with it for the long term. Thus, there is more certainty that you will reach your weight loss goal successfully.
