You’ve probably heard it all before. Losing weight is less about dieting and more…
We all know by now that exercise is very important to stay fit and healthy. Still, a lot of people are not heeding the advice of health experts to keep active. Inactivity is very dangerous, and can lead to a host of ailments and health issues. It’s hard to get started on an exercise routine, but once you get started, it gets easier as time goes on. Of course, before you do any exercising, you have to be healthy enough to start an exercise routine. It’s always a good idea to check with your doctor before you begin a new exercise regimen.
1. Interval training
Interval training is simply changing the pace of any exercise you may be engaged in. For instance, if you are walking, walk at a normal pace for a minute or so, then step up the pace, and then return back to the normal pace. Or if you are doing exercises like push-ups, do a few at a normal pace, then do a few faster. Repeat these slow and faster intervals several times. This helps the body adjust the heart rate, breathing and metabolism to burn more calories, lose weight and strengthen muscles. So basically, you want to vary the intensity of the workout instead of going at a steady pace.
