New Year’s Weight Loss Tips: Exercise

This is the second installment of a four part weight loss tips series. If you haven’t already, check out part one on dieting. This version focuses on exercise. Here are our five weight loss exercise tips:

1. Stick to something

With so many workout fads in this day and age, it can be difficult to choose just one area to focus on. However, as this Outside Magazine piece stresses, it’s important to stick to one routine. Don’t continuously switch from one exercise program to another and expect to see results.

2. Embrace high-intensity interval training

High-intensity interval training is a workout that shifts between very rigorous activity and much less difficult exercise. An example could be running hard for two minutes and then jogging slowly for one minute in between repetitions. Shape lists several benefits to high-intensity interval training, ranging from burning fat to increasing your metabolism.

3. Find a workout partner

 A few weeks into a new year it can be easy to get lazy and skip workouts. However, if you have a workout partner then exercise will be more fun and social. At the same time, your workout buddy will motivate you exercise more.

4. Try weightlifting

Some light strength training isn’t necessarily going to give you bulging muscles or make you bigger while you’re trying to lose weight. In fact, weightlifting “will help you lose fat and build lean muscle quickly and effectively,” according to The Independent.

5. Remember to have fun

Workouts geared at losing weight can be arduous, painful, and not very enjoyable. If you want to lose weight but despise aerobic exercises like running then try playing a sport. There are all kinds of sports like soccer, basketball, swimming, etc. that are great, enjoyable workouts.
