Fat burn exercise
Exercise is a crucial ingredient for successful weight loss. If you have led a sedentary lifestyle, starting to exercise is a big deal. It can even seem very daunting. However, if you cautiously approach exercise, starting slowly and gradually building up the intensity, you will be successfully on your way to a healthier you.
What Not To Do
Reality TV shows built around weight loss competitions are the prime example of what not to do. They take very overweight, very sedentary individuals and make them do intense exercise for long periods of time. There is significant risk of injury in doing so.
While reality television contestants also have professional trainers and a medical team observing them, the average individual does not.
The Right Intensity
When you are starting to exercise, focus on the intensity. You need to start out prudently, working sufficiently hard to garner the benefits of exercise, without overdoing it. You should be able to maintain a conversation while you exercise.
Walking is a great, easy and inexpensive way to start exercising. Don’t aim for 5 miles the first day. Instead walk at a brisk pace for you for about 20 to 30 minutes. Gradually after three or four walks like this, add an extra three to five minutes to your walk. Always maintain a brisk pace. When you have worked up to an hour of walking and the pace is no longer a challenge, it may be time to consider alternating walking and running.

The most important thing about exercising is to be consistent with it. Low intensity exercise every day is much more beneficial to your health than high intensity exercise that is very sporadic. While the contestants on weight loss shows exercise for many hours a day, the average individual who works and has family commitments cannot give up a similar amount of time. Therefore, plan to exercise every day. In fact, twice a day will give you the best results.
When you find that you are physically and mentally ready for the next level of exercise, invest time and money in a good trainer. This person will help put you on the right track with your fitness and weight loss goals.
