Anyone trying to lose weight wants to be successful and actually lose weight. If exercise is your chosen way of going about it (a wise choice seeing as it burns calories which is a main way to lose weight), it is only natural you should ask: “So what is the best exercise to lose weight?”
Best exercise to lose weight
In this blog, TRUTH give you some top tips for how to lose weight concentrating on the best exercise to do so.
As a London based UK personal fitness training brand we are well placed to help you lose weight.
What is the best exercise to lose weight?
It is arguable that there is no one best exercise to lose weight – each person is different in terms of:
- body type
- and different people want to lose weight in different areas of their body
So we at TRUTH have selected three of our best types of exercises to lose weight.
- Cardiovascular exercise
Cardiovascular (or aerobic) exercise is about oxygen. Taking in oxygen through breathing enables the body to use its muscles, which in turn burns calories.
So this could be as simple as:
- taking walks on a regular basis as well as making walking part of your daily life where you may have previously opted for taking the tube or the lift.
- If you are extra serious about ensuring you lose weight, how about upping the pace with exercise such as running, jogging or cycling?
Both jogging and running can really help those wishing to lose weight from the belly.
I’m pretty sure most of us have at some stage wanted to lose weight from our midriff.
- Weight training
For those of you more used to hitting the traditional gym, weight training may be your first choice of best exercise to lose weight.
Weight training as an exercise can help you to burn approximately 112 calories in just 30 minutes according to Harvard Health (that’s based on a 70 kg person).
An added benefit of choosing weight training as an exercise to lose weight is that after you have finished doing it, guess what…your body will continue to burn calories!
Using a skipping rope is another TRUTH best exercise to lose weight as it burns lots of calories and you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
Easy on the brain, it’s a great exercise to lose weight and do something else at the same time such as watching tv or simply gathering your thoughts for the day ahead.
(One of the TRUTH team swears by it for a form of regular exercise coupled with mind therapy).
If the above types of cardiovascular exercise are not your choice of best exercise to lose weight, how about choosing swimming instead? Swimming is a great choice of cardiovascular exercise if you have an injury as it is low-impact exercise.
- Interval training or high-intensity interval training (HIIT)
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is the best exercise to lose weight if you are counting calories burned.
Yes, interval training has been proven (in a study of nine active men) to burn 25-30% extra calories per minute than both weight training and some cardiovascular exercise such as cycling and running!
Interval training involves a series of intense exercises, each followed by a recovery period. Sounds ideal if you are not a person with excellent stamina who could never imagine handling a 30 minute jog.
Also, interval training saves you time as the time taken to burn calories is less than some other forms of best exercise to lose weight.
We at TRUTH know that for many of our busy city clients, time is of the essence, so if you are looking to lose weight and save time, HIIT may be the best exercise for you.
