Exercise – The Most Effective Weight Loss Plan
Being active is an essential part of any weight loss programme. If you are active, your body utilizes more energy (calories) and when you burn more calories than you consume, you drop those extra pounds.
When coupled with a hale and hearty diet, your quest to weight loss is sure to be triumphant. This is time-consuming. But what if you could speed up your efforts of losing weight by doing exercises that burn the most calories?

- Interval Training
Interval training is a workout doing any form of exercise at an erratic rate which let you strengthen muscles and continue burning calories long after you finish working out. If you walk, you can add some running bursts. If you run, include sprints and lunge-walking bursts. If you do aerobics, alternate with slower muscle-toning moves and plyometric jumps.
- Resistance or Strength Training
Incorporate weights in your exercise programme as this will give you a leaner, more shapely and youthful look. Start with a set of 3, 5 and 8 pound dumbbells. Strength training helps you build muscles which in turn helps you burn more calories, body fat and boost metabolism.
- Plyometrics or Jump Training
If you’re an intermediate or advanced exerciser, you can try this exercise. Plyometrics is about having the muscles apply maximum force in the shortest time possible with the goal of enhancing power and speed. The high-intensity exercises will get your heart pumping which result to more calories burned.

Tips for Burning More Calories during Exercise
- Do Cardio First
If you want to further your calorie burn, do cardio first before exercising. Doing cardio first increases after burn which result to more calories burned.
- Take Advantage of Intervals
Working at a higher intensity allows you to burn more calories and fats during your exercise and for several hours afterwards.
- Take Out That Jump Rope
10 minutes of jumping rope provides the same fitness benefits as a 30-minute run.
- Never Exercise When You’re Hungry
An empty stomach won’t help you burn more fat. You need energy if you want to work hard to lose more calories. Eat a light meal first before working out.
- Take A Nordic Walk
Nordic walking is a low-impact, full-body exercise that is kind on the joints which uses walking poles (similar to ski poles) to improve effort. You apply force to the poles with each stride so you use your whole body with greater force letting you burn about 20% calories per hour while working more muscle groups, but without straining you.
