Exercises To Help Lose Weight

Updated on April 2, 2011

Some believe it is a secret to lose weight but not really, there are other more effective exercises to lose weight. Too often people spend money, time and energy doing exercises without finding or reaching satisfactory results. It is likely that these people are doing exercises wrong.

Another thing is that there are some routines to help others do the opposite. When you exercise to expend energy and do not reduce fat, or "fat" that you wanted to reduce. It is not impossible, yet, you need some patience or else you won’t achieve good results.

On the other hand, there are exercises that have to be the staple of your routine. You must be in good condition and your body balanced is why we do not recommend you put all your attention on cardio or weight alone, but combine both.


A great exercise is to run daily, run just gives you great benefits, when you run a week later you feel great, remember that you must stretch run. Stretching is absolutely essential in a routine to lose weight; therefore if you stretch your muscles are not properly prepared for physical activity.

Remember that also exercises in parts where you want to reduce your weight, and waist, hips, stomach, etc. some of the exercises I recommend are the squat and of course the abs.


Aerobics are good for reducing fat; you should keep in mind that the key is to combine all these years. Not only do weights or cardio you combine both.

Be Careful


• Remember it is important to ask your doctor if you can do all the exercises before beginning.

• Choose a physical activity that you like.

• Warm up and stretch for 10 to 20 minutes before your activity.

• Start slowly but surely, your body can do.

• After your activity relaxes your muscles and stretch from 10 to 20 minutes.

• Variety is the goal; you always have to have new exercises so it won’t become tedious or boring. Change the routine every 7 to 8 weeks.

• Do not forget your body care, much less if you have any injury.

Remember, your body is the only one you have, so look after it and  if you feel pain or discomfort immediately stop and seek advice from your physician.

Avoid Plateaus

Also remember that routines must constantly change to see results in less time. This is all a matter of attitude, if you think you can do it or you have some immediate goals this will further  encourage you.

Also, if you have an old picture of you thin this is a great motivator if you put this up where it could be readily seen on a day to day basis. We recommend physical activity 3 times per week minimum, if you can do it daily, and it will help you feel better about yourself.

You have to have the strength and believe you can achieve all your goals, trust me and see how your self-esteem rises during exercise. It is time to look amazing so start working out now!

Along with those programs, you could apply some fast techniques. The advantage of those exercises is that they could be applied anywhere, even on your lunch break at work or before retiring to bed.
