Inexpensive Exercise Equipment

Updated on December 12, 2010

Most people want to lose weight, but in reality it is better to lose fat and inches. The burning of fat that exercise offers only begins to take place when the body reaches a certain temperature. This usually takes about 15 minutes of exercise, so it may be useful to start with resistance training, followed by an aerobic exercise such as walking. So if you walk for 30 minutes you will burn fat for 30 minutes.

You can lose a few pounds in just one or two weeks with a little cardio every day. The key here is to challenge your muscles, but do not overdo it. You can literally do activities such as using cross-training, running, sprinting, jumping or squatting. All you have to do is to stay active for 30 minutes a day and make sure your diet is sufficient to feed those burning calories.

With exercise, if you end up doing something you really do not like then it is easy to lose focus. If you hate running then you will not continue to drag yourself out of bed at 6 am every day, especially during the cold winter weather.

Find a low intensity exercise and gradually increase your time and intensity over the weeks, this is vital for the longevity of your exercise routine. If you start with intense exercise you could easily injury youself, such as pulled tendons, which means no exercise until the injury has healed. You are more likely to follow your exercise program if you start lightly and build up over time.
