Weight Loss Exercise ProgramsWeight loss exercise programs come in all shapes and sizes -- kind of like people! From small finess routines that take 15 minutes, up through some serious hour-plus workouts, there are all kinds of exercises that can help you lose weight.
All exercise programs can help you to lose weight. However, not all burn calories at the same rate. Obviously you won't get the same fat-burning properties from office chair exercises as from taking a spinning class.
Still, any exercise that builds muscle and/or burns at least a moderate amount of calories is a fitness program that you want to include in with your diet program!
Ideas for Weight Loss Exercise Programs
Here are some ideas for putting together your own set of weight loss exercise programs. Your best bet is to pick one or more aerobic routine you enjoy, plus one or more strength-training routine.
Decide -- Then Do
All the great weight loss exercise programs in the world won't help you unless you actually take the time and do the routines. Decide what you'd like to try, and don't worry if your first choice turns out to be the wrong one for you (for now). Try something else to keep you moving and losing the weight!
Fat Burning Exercises
Sure, you know you should exercise on general principle. But if you have limited time, you'd probably like to know some of the better fat burning exercises you can include.
Some exercises that use up a lot of calories include:
Bicycling at a moderate to high pace
Treadmill (or walking) at a fast pace
