Wonderful Fat Burning Exercises For a Slimmer Body

Jun 25, 2008
It is not necessary for a fat burning exercise to be complex or highly intense in order to achieve results. The following fat burning exercises are examples of how a simple, convenient workout is all you need to burn fat.

Research has proven that workouts that involve minimal impact, such as walking, actually burn a greater amount of calories from fat than workouts with higher intensity do. For those of you that want to lose weight and burn fat, but don't want to put too much stress on your joints, this is very good news. Just about anybody can workout by walking at no cost to them.

Initiate by walking for an interlude of 10 to 20 minutes. Start at a speed that you are comfortable with, and increase your speed a bit more with each day. Never do too much. An easy way to tell if you are walking too quickly for your current level of fitness is this: you should be able to speak normally as you go. If not, reduce your speed a bit until your fitness level increases. Carrying small hand weights as you walk can elevate your workout. This will allow you to burn more fat while building muscles.

Getting Rid of Fat by Dancing

More and more people are choosing dancing as a means of helping themselves burn fat and lose weight. The great thing about dance is that it can be so much fun you forget you're exercising.

A person weighing 150-pounds can burn more than 200 calories by doing ballet and aerobic dancing and can burn 103 to 189 calories by doing ballroom dancing in just 30 minutes.

Though it's great for reducing calories, what turns dance into a great fat burner? The fast and slow movements which are generally associated with dance help to switch on the aerobic and anaerobic systems of the body that burn fat. When you dance at a fast speed, you activate the anaerobic system of the body, using energy that is stored in your muscles. Carbohydrates stored in the body get converted into energy, when the aerobic system is initiated by slower dance steps. Doing this not only burns fat and calories, but it also increases the amount of muscle in your body, which also helps to burn fat.

Reducing Fat by Jogging

Another excellent fat burning exercise that you should try is jogging. You can use the alternating aerobic and anaerobic method that we just discussed to elevate your jogging workout. To begin with, walk at a medium speed for two minutes. Next, switch to jogging, and do it for two minutes also. Alternate between the two for half an hour.
The workout becomes more efficient for burning fat when the aerobic and anaerobic systems are triggered on and off by the alteration between slow and fast exercises.

Burning Fat with Muscles

As we have already mentioned, adding muscle to your body can help you burn fat. The reason for this is that muscle increases your metabolism, burning off more calories. Weightlifting is the best method to build muscle.

Use a barbell with a very low weight when you first start lifting. Generally, 5 pounds is a good beginning. To find out if the dumbbell is the right weight for you, try lifting it 10 times. If you find it easy to do ten repetitions, then it's time to move on to a higher weight. If you can't make it to 10 you will need a lighter weight. You should alternate the days that you do fat burning exercises with the days that you lift weights.
