How To Control Your Weight With Exercise



I already mentioned in my other article “the types of diets”, their side effects and how those diets can effect your health. You cant lose your weight overnight, its a slow process and it needs a lots of steps to be followed. You should target yourself not to lose weight only but to lose weight healthily. Read the follow steps:

Regular exercise

There is no getting away from the fact that taking regular exercise is the way to stay healthy.It reduces your risk of getting ill, can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. Plus it will be a lot of fun, if you are doing it with your friends.If you are not doing any then its time to start one.

Expert’s opinion

Experts recommends that you get off your backside five days a week for 30 minutes. If you have not exercised for a while then start off gently and build up. Don’t feel you have to do something extreme. Its better to do something than nothing at all.

Make small changes

Try getting off the bus couple of stops early, walk instead of driving and climb the stairs instead of lift. Starting like this can be more do-able for overweight people or smokers.

Wear right footwear

Make sure that you are wearing the right trainers. They should fit comfortably, support your arch and ankles and suit the sport you will be doing.

Warm up

Always warm up before you work out, it heats up your muscles and prepares your heart, lungs and mind for what’s about to happen, which means you stand less chances of injuries.

Cool down after exercise

A good cool down after exercise is as must as a warm up, sudden stopping can lead to aches and strains. Start with large movements and ease down gradually.

Different kinds of exercises

Throwing different kinds of exercises into the mix means your body gets an overall workout. Experiment with cardiovascular to work your heart and lungs, such as football and running, weight-bearing to strengthen your muscles and bones, and stretch and tone like yoga and swimming to give your muscles flexibility.

        Power walking is a brisk walk, in which you also moves your hands. Its very fast kind of walk which involves movements of all body parts.
