More Tips to Make Weight Loss Workouts More Effective

by Maria on October 31, 2010

Here are more tips to make weight loss workouts more effective:

1. If you want to lose weight, you want to lose fat. To burn fat you need oxygen which you get through aerobic exercise. Walking, jogging, bicycling, elliptical exercise and stair-climbing are all great fat burners. Try and work out aerobically 30-60 min. per session.

2. Learn to develop rhythmic style when exercising – burning fat requires continuous, smooth movements.

3. For effective fat burning breathe slightly deeper.

4. Mix up frequency, intensity and time so your muscles don’t get used to the same routine over and over again.

5. Working out right before going to sleep will have the opposite effect.

6. Power walking is walking at higher intensity. Take short steps, squeeze your buttocks, pull your abdominals up and in, practice heel-to-toe roll, pump your arms with an opposite arm-to-leg movement, keep your chest out, shoulders back and head up.

7. If you are short of time, climb stairs.  Climbing two steps at a time is good for building strong thigh and butt muscles. Try not to use the handrail.
