Fat Burning Exercises That Work!

Jun 25, 2008
Effective fat burning exercises don't have to be complicated and difficult. The fat burning exercises below prove that you are able to satisfy your need for simple exercises to burn off large amounts of fat.

Walk Away from Flab

Studies have shown that participating in low impact activities such as walking, burn more calories from fat than intense, fast paced exercise. This comes as welcome news to those who want to lose weight and burn fat while putting minimal stress on their joints. Additionally, walking is an exercise that won't cost a thing!

You should begin walking for 10 to 20 minute at a time.

Go at a speed that you can maintain comfortably, and try to pick up the pace a little each day. Don't try to do too much at once.

You should be able to talk normally if you are walking at an appropriate pace for your fitness level. It may be necessary to slow down for a little time until you find that you are more fit to do the exercise. You can beef up your walking regimen by using light hand-held weights. This will cause you to burn more calories and fat and build more muscle.

Dance Away Fat

Dance is quickly increasing in popularity due to it's ability to burn fat and trim waistlines. The wonderful thing abut dancing is that when you are having fun, it is easy to forget that you are exercising.

A 150 pound person can burn from 103 to 189 calories by ballroom dancing for only 30 minutes. That same person could also burn 200 calories doing ballet or aerobic dancing for a half hour.

It is known that dancing enables you to burn calories, but dance also burns fat since it incorporates slow and fast movements thereby switching on the aerobic and the anaerobic systems of the body.

Fast-paced dancing starts the anaerobic system, using energy stored in the muscles. Then the dance step which is slower will start the aerobic system, which begins changing the body's stored carbohydrates into energy. Your body begins the fat burning and calorie burning process, and also starts to build muscle. This in turn, begins to burn fat also.

Jogging for Less Jiggle

Another wonderful fat burning exercise is Jogging. If a 150 pound person jogs for a half hour, he can burn 238 calories. But why not make jogging more effective by using the previously discussed aerobic / anaerobic system? Begin by walking at a medium speed for two minutes. Then start jogging for two minutes. Finally, you can walk and jog, back and forth, for another thirty minutes. Alternating between slow exercises and fast exercises turns on and off the aerobic and anerobic systems, enabling your workout to be more effective in burning fat.

Muscling in on Fat

As previously stated, muscle helps to burn fat. Muscles boosts the metabolism, which in turn burns more calories. Weightlifting is the best way to build muscle.

Beginners should start with a very light weight barbell. Five pounds is usually a good weight to begin with. The weight is tested by performing ten lifts of the dumbell. If you are able to do 10 repetitions easily, then try lifting a heavier weight. If you tire out before you hit 10, you're going to need a lighter weight. Try switching between one of the fat reducing exercise shown above with a weightlifting exercise every other day.

Choose a fat burning exercise that meets your needs, and the pounds will drop off you like they never have before.
