What is the best exercise to lose weight?
This is a question asked over and over again and there are many who are willing to answer it for you. They have DVD’s, workout tapes, exercise plans, and more. They tell you that they have the best exercise plan around, bring out the “before and after” pictures, and convince you that, yes, their way is THE way. But in the end, it turns out that their way doesn’t work for you, you get frustrated, and stop the workout plan. The truth is, they are all lying to you. Well, that’s a little, harsh. They aren’t “lying” but withholding the actual truth from you–so they can sell you their DVD’s.
So what is the truth? What is the best exercise for weight loss? The answer is: All or none. What? Yes, all or none. All exercises are best, while NONE of them are, unless you change the way and the amount you’re eating! And that, my friends, is the actual answer to the question.
Like I talk about in my ebook, the Half Meal Habit, exercise is NOT the most important part of losing weight. It can play a role–a huge role–in the amount of weight you lose and at the speed you lose it, though. I go over the “cardio vs. resistance training” argument in detail and explain what the greatest achievement in workout creation is. I’ll share the latter with you now!
This is the one area many overweight people struggle with. The dreaded midsection! There really is no “spot reducing” magic you can do to lose that fat, so you need to do an overall weight loss approach. As the pounds come off, you will start to see your ab muscles shine through, and you will be happy with your fat loss overall.
The best exercise for abs is of course crunches or sit ups. You want to build up the muscles underneath your layer of fat so when you do lose the weight, your six pack will be waiting. It’s like dropping a six pack of beer in the snow in winter and when spring comes and the snow melts away, you get a six pack! Hooray! It will take a little more work than tossing some bottles in a snow drift though. Sorry.
So, what is the best exercise to lose weight?
I am BIG on doing High Intensity Interval Training because you get resistance and cardio in one short workout. HARD but short, like 15 minutes! Do some research on H.I.I.T. and you will see what I mean. I ALWAYS recommend http://bodyrock.tv as the best source of these kind of workouts, so be sure to peruse their videos. Here’s a sample one from the Half Meal Habit:
So the KEY to how to burn lower belly fat or over all weight in general is to EAT LESS like taught in the Half Meal Habit. Add these workouts and get ready to see some awesome results!
