How Do You Burn Calories
Exercising burns calories. Now, the number of calories you burn depends on a few factors: how long you exercise for, your pace, the intensity and yes, your weight and height does make a difference.
The more weight you have the more you will burn. You are able to burn a lot of calories even on a tight schedule, you don’t need to exercise for long hours to burn calories .
Run in a manner that increases your heart rate quickly, in other words focus on a high intensity work-out.
Find a pace that lets you walk or run for the entire duration of the exercise without stopping to catch your breath.
I Am A Beginner
If you are a beginner or you haven’t exercised in sometime, approach it slow and with a steady attitude.
Start by walking, it is best to warm up no less than five minutes at an easy but moderate pace. Then gradually increase the pace until you are out of breath slightly.
Remember as a beginner your body needs to adapt and acclimate to this new workout. Don’t introduce a new workout or intensity level to your routine right away.
Give your body some time to adapt. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself too soon.
Plus and Minus of Treadmills
Treadmills build your leg strength, boost stamina, burns calories, and your stress level comes down. Also a treadmill has a variety of speed and incline settings that you can use to personally tailor each workout.
The minus of running on a treadmill is that you lose the beautiful scenery of the outdoors and the fresh air.
But don’t let that discourage you. Once you on a regular routine and your body is adapted to exercising again, you can change it up, sometimes you run outdoors and sometimes indoors.
Establish And Maintain Routines
Why take this step? Routines are a major part of life, yes even recreations follow set routines.
Doing so helps you have self-control and self-reliance. It is great to have a trainer when it comes to exercising, but it is even better when you are able to self motivate yourself.
