Fat Burning Exercises for a Trimmer Body

Fat burning exercises can be simple and low key and still work. You can choose simple ones from the fat burning exercises given here to burn the most fat.

Leave Flab Behind

Several studies have established the effectiveness of walking and other low-impact exercises in burning more calories from fat compared to fast, high-intensity exercises. This is wonderful news for people who desire to lose weight and burn fat without putting painful stress on their joints. Additionally, almost anybody can get exercise for free by walking.

Walking in intervals of between 10 and 20 minutes is how you start. Begin at a speed that you are comfortable with and try to increase your speed with each day that you walk. Don't push yourself too hard. If you find it difficult to speak normally while walking, it means that you are walking too fast for your current fitness level. Until you are fit enough, slow down a little. Light hand weights will dramatically enhance any walking exercise. You will gain muscle, thus burning more fat and calories, by doing this.

Dance the Fat Away

Dancing is now widely popular as a way to shed unwanted fat and trim waistlines. Dance can be such fun that its exercise benefits are forgotten.103 to 189 calories are burned by a 150 pound person by doing ballroom dancing and more than 200 calories by doing ballet and aerobic dancing, in just 30 minutes.

We know that dancing burns a lot of calories, but why is it also a great way to burn fat?
Dance usually incorporates fast and slow movements, switching on the aerobic and the anaerobic systems of the body that burn fat. Dance steps taken at a rapid pace will ignite the anaerobic system that burns energy stored in muscles. Aerobic system is started by the slower dance steps, which in turn converts carbohydrates into energy stored in the body. This not only burns fat and calories but also builds muscle, which in turn helps to burn more fat.

Jog for Less Jiggling

Another exercise that is effective in fat burning is jogging. Only 30 minutes of jogging will allow a 150 lb person to burn 238 calories. Jogging can be vastly improved by incorporating the aerobic and anaerobic systems discussed above. When you begin, walk at a medium pace for two minutes. Next, jog for about two minutes. Alternate jogging and walking for a half hour. This causes the workout to be more effective by turning the aerobic and anaerobic systems on and off, making the body burn more fat.

Muscling in on Fat

Muscle aids in burning fat, as noted above. Added muscle burns more calories by boosting the metabolism. Weightlifting is the most effective way to gain muscle.

One should start out with a very light barbell. 5 pounds is usually ideal for beginners. Do ten dumbbell lifts to test the weight. Move on to a heavier weight if doing ten is easy. A lighter weight is needed if you cannot do 10 repetitions. Alternate one of the fat burning exercises mentioned above with an every other day weightlifting program.

Choose the fat burning exercise according to your needs and you will be losing weight as you never have before.
