When doing exercises to lose weight fast you should concentrate at first on increasing your stamina. Increasing your stamina will help you most in the long run because you cannot sustain a good work out or lose any weight if you can only work out for five or ten minutes. Cardio exercises are a very good way to increase your stamina.
Start walking on a treadmill or use a stair stepper, or an elliptical machine, or a stationary bike. I would suggest you start out slow to prevent any injuries because if you get hurt while trying to increase your stamina you will not be able to keep working out and will have defeated the purpose of trying to lose weight. So, start slow and work up to being able to do thirty minutes of pretty intense cardio at least three times a week.
Get busy at an aerobics class also to help build stamina. Start with a beginner’s class so you do not feel intimidated by the intermediate or advanced class. Soon you will be able to join these classes and keep up with the best of them. Aerobics classes are a great way to learn exercises to lose weight fast.
Several years ago spinning classes became a huge attraction for people who wanted a very intense work out. A word of caution, do not start out exercising by joining a spinning class, you will regret it. Spinning classes are so intense, you definitely need to work into them or they will absolutely kick your butt.
Once you get your stamina built up you can pretty much handle anything from here on out so my suggestion would be to add some weights and strength training. The more muscle you have, the more fat you will burn all the time, not just when you work out.
When including weights in your work out you should find out from a trainer whether or not you do your exercises with good form. Good form is important because, again, you could cause yourself injury and once you get to this point you really do not want an injury to cause you to have to delay your work outs and weight loss.
One way to get the strength training and not spend three hours a day doing it is to adopt a way of lifting weights in which you only do one set for every major muscle group. That’s right, one set only. The trick is to choose a weight that is heavy enough and to do that one set slow and controlled. You should be able to count to seven with the effort of lifting the weight and the same on the release of the weight.
The weight should be sufficient that when you are done with the one set of ten to twelve that when you are done you could not lift that weight again if your life depended on it. This technique is called ‘Taking your muscles to fatigue’ and guarantees you fast results. Doing these exercises to lose weight fast will be very effective.
