Top Three Weight Loss Exercises

This article will provide you the most common forms of exercises recommended by a lot of fitness trainers.

Elliptical Machine

Elliptical machines help you burn calories very fast and you get to sweat in buckets when you are working out in these machines. What makes elliptical machines better than treadmills is that elliptical machines provide you with a great upper and lower body workout unlike treadmills where the focus is mostly on your lower body. A workout using an elliptical helps strengthen your muscles and joints. It can also help you lose* weight by burning more calories and increasing* your metabolism. Treadmills tend to have a negative effect on your lower body joints and muscles as well as your back.

Running and Jogging

In spite of the negative effects it can do to your body, running is still a very good way to enhance* your metabolism, burn calories and increase* your metabolism. However, the best way to get this kind of workout without harming your body is doing it in the elliptical machine. This is another excellent way to lose* weight quickly. People who may have not worked out for years can mount an elliptical and perform any elliptical exercise for ten to twenty minutes initially. This can help you burn more than 300 calories fast.

 

Walking

Top Three Weight Loss Exercises

Walking is indeed one of the all-time classics when it comes to weight loss* exercises. This is an excellent and very healthy way to lose* weight since you are exercising almost all muscle groups in your body when you walk. Walking comes next to elliptical exercises when it comes to burning calories, improving* the cardiovascular system and enhancing* metabolism. Walking is easy and the most natural thing to do. It is not bad for the joints and anyone can do it. Typically, a human walks around 3 miles per hour. When you up the tempo and walk up to 4 mph, you can instantly burn in excess of 400 calories within an hour.

Why waste time going to the gym when you perform workouts that do not efficiently address your weight loss* needs. Knowing the right form of exercises will give you faster results and immediate health benefits. And if you include eating a healthy diet to your exercise repertoire, you can increase* your calorie burning by more than 400%.
