One of the keys for you to lose weight is to be active...
However, it all depends on how much weight you want to lose and how you want your body to mold. Here are some suggestions for you to start your weight loss program.
Start by eating healthy which it will be the biggest cause of your weight loss. Once you are on track with your eating, you can choose an exercise routine to practice.
Walking will help you lose weight in a slow rate if you are patience. I will also recommend it to people who can’t run or don’t know how to run long distances. This will be a good idea to do every day at least for 30 minutes.
Another good exercise for those who don’t know how to run long distance is biking or swimming. These exercises will also help you lose weight in a faster paste than walking. I also recommend you do these exercise everyday if possible for at least thirty minutes.
If your goal is to lose weight faster...
I recommend you learn how to run, start enjoying the exercise and make it part of your routine. Running does give you a lot more results than walking. What gives you more results is going to be more difficult and of course, running is a lot more difficult than walking. Nevertheless, it is enjoyable once you learn how to run.
Now, if you want to tone your body and lose weight faster, weight lifting is what you want to do with a combination of cardio.
The reason why weight lifting is so effective for weight loss is because...
you can burn a lot of calories, increase your muscle mass hence your metabolism and tone your body. Not only your are losing weight, but you are rejuvenating your body, making it strong which in turns helps you avoid injuries. Not to mention that weight lifting makes your body more attractive.
This is the reason why a weight lifting routine has become so popular among people. It is not only about staying active, but choosing the right activity to get the results you deserve.
Now, you need to learn how to lift weights and a periodization routine. It is so important to avoid injuries, have a balance body and also get results.
For example, you need to work all major muscle groups in the body- hamstrings, gluteus, Quadriceps, abs, back, chest, biceps, triceps and shoulders. You need to know different exercises for each muscle group for various reasons, to work all different muscle fibers within the muscle and to not get bored of the same exercise.
Once you know this, the next step is to create a routine of three, four of five days at week. There are so many routines you can follow. Here I am going to share a link to our routines for your follow.
Next thing to keep in mind is that for your body to change, you need to challenge it. If there is no challenge, you body does not need to change. This is the most difficult of weight lifting and this is the reason why I am going to capitalize it AS YOUR BODY GETS USED TO THE WEIGHTS YOU ARE LIFTING, YOU NEED TO GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND LIFE THE NEXT HEAVIER SET OF WEIGHTS. This is the only wat your body will get stronger, toner and sexier.
Now you need to add to your routine a couple days of cardio for better results. You can walk 3 to 6 times a week for at least 30 minutes, you can run or hike from 2 to 3 days a week for at least 25 minutes. Or you can choose any other cardio activity you enjoy for at least 2 days a week.
This is very simple, no scientific explanations or something out of the ordinary. Now you have your perfect exercise routing for weight loss.
